Mitsubishi Electric’s E700 series inverter is now available with a safe torque off input, eliminating the need for a redundant contactor in installations seeking compliance with EN954-1 Cat.3 and IEC60204-1 Stop Category 0.

Denoted by the characters ‘SC’ after the ampere rating in the model number, this is 6mm deeper than the existing version across the power range, and is compatible with both connectivity and I/O option cards when utilising kits created for the safe torque off model.

The product is suitable for OEMs and end users who have constant or variable torque loads. Features include motor friendly soft PWM (pulse width modulation) switching, a self diagnostic mode, advanced flux vector control, and a flux optimisation mode.
