Traction VVVF – Magnetek HPV 900 S2

Incorporating the Magnetek HPV 900 S2
The HPV 900 Series 2 elevator drive is designed for both new installations and modernisation projects, providing advanced closed-loop vector control for superior performance.

An easy-to-install AC drive, it provides accurate acceleration and deceleration, resulting in smooth ride quality. Magnetek’s proven technical expertise and customer service are just two of the reasons why Lester Controls supply the HPV 900 S2. For geared installations we recommend the HPV 900 S2 every time.

Direct-to-floor approach using serial communications is standard when used in conjunction with a CEDES or USP Shaft Positioning System.
