We are committed to being the world’s leading supplier of AC adjustable speed drives by providing the highest quality products as well as the best documentation and product support available in the industry.
  • Page 3 INSTALLATION AND START-UP INSTRUCTIONS FOR AF-600 REDUNDANT DRIVE PANELS The following information is provided for reference use during the installation of your AF-600 Redundant Drive Panels. Please note that all equipment shall be installed in accordance with the 2008 edition of NFPA 70 (National Electric Code) along with applicable local codes. This document provides information pertaining to: inspections, environment, installation, and wiring.
  • Page 4 All wall-mounted enclosures must be mounted on a non-flammable or heat resistant surface. Some enclosure configurations of AF-600 Redundant Drive Panels require ventilation to keep the components and inverter within their thermal recommendations. The enclosure door and sides contains grilles at the bottom and top to allow for air to circulate through the enclosure.
  • Page 5 CAUTION: Failure to cover components from metal shavings may result in damage to equipment. GROUNDING All panels/enclosures must be grounded. All exposed metal parts are connected to ground to prevent contact with a dangerous voltage if electrical insulations fail. Each panel contains a grounding bus with provisions for connecting a field-grounding conductor.
  • Page 6 (1) inch separation. AF-600 Redundant Drive Panels require no additional control wiring to operate properly. Additional control interfacing to your control panel can be accomplished through the panel mounted customer terminal board “CTB1”.
  • Page 7 Torque values for connecting to “CTB1” are located in the Appendices. If your application requires wiring to the AF-600 FP inverter I/O control terminal board, use 16 to 18 AWG wire. Connections on the inverter I/O terminal board should be tight enough such that a slight tug on the wire will not result in the wire coming partially or completely out of the terminal board.

    1. Operator Devices Your Redundant Drive panel is equipped with several panel door mounted operator devices, which may include the following: one (1) through-the-door, lockable, input device disconnect handle; two (2) operator selector switches; and five (5) indicator lights. The operation of these devices is explained in this section. Refer to the Drive Terminal Board I/O section of this manual and wiring diagrams for specifics on wiring connections.
  • Page 11 CAUTION: Failure to insert enough time delay between operation of the motor from the drive1 and operation from drive2 can result in a protective trip of the drive. The time delay is to ensure a safe transition. Hand/Off/Auto Selector This selector is also referred to as the H-O-A switch. In the “Off” position power will be removed from the motor in both drive “drive 1”...

    Emergency Stop This operator is used to shut off the panel output in case of Emergency. To restart the panel, Reset the E-stop by turn to release. Power On Indicator This white light on the panel door indicates that the circuit breaker/disconnect switch is closed and that AC power is present at the panel input terminals.

    CTB1-1 through CTB1-3 Customer Safety Interlocks. Put normally closed contacts between CTB-1 and CTB-3. CTB-2 and CTB-3 provide an additional connection point if required. An open circuit between these positions will cause the bypass and drive output contactors to drop out resulting in power being removed from the motor.
