  • Page 24: Notes On Inverters

    1.4.2 Notes on inverters Over-current protective function The inverter has an over-current protective function. The current for this protection is adjusted to the maximum current rating of the applicable motors by default. Therefore, when the inverter is used to control a motor with a relatively small capacity, it is necessary to readjust the over-current protection level and the electronic thermal protective function.

  • Page 27: Installation Environment

    Prohibited If you intend to install the inverter where a chemical or solvent other than those listed below is used, consult your Toshiba dealer in advance. (Table1) (Table 2)

  • Page 28

    In such a case, contact your Toshiba dealer in advance. If installing the inverter close to any of the following appliances or devices, take necessary measures to prevent them from malfunctioning.

  • Page 29: Installation Place

    Failure to do so could lead to injury to persons since it has no emergency stop function. - Do not use any optional devices other than those designated by Toshiba. The use of improper devices could lead to accidents.

    Calorific values of inverters and amount of air to be ventilated The VF-A7 series of inverter loses about 5% of energy when switching electric currents from AC, DC, then to AC. To limit a temperature rise due to this energy loss, it is necessary to forcefully ventilate and cool down the cabinet in which the inverter is installed.

  • Page 31

    Control panel designed in consideration of possible influences of noise Inverters produce high-frequency noise. To avoid influences of noise, measures must be taken in designing a control panel. Here are some examples of measures against noise. Separately install the wires of the main circuit and those of the control circuit. Do not install their wires in the same duct or in parallel with each other, and do not bind them together.

    Heat-sink going out attachment(simple type) To install a standard VF-A7 designed for 37kW motor or larger, you can choose a one from next two forms. (1) Normal attachment (Whole the inverter is in the cabinet) (2) Heat-sink going out (the cabinet) attachment(simple type) Heat-sink going out attachment reduces the generation of heat inside the cabinet.

  • Page 33: Connection

    Danger Never disassemble, modify or repair the inverter. Its disassembly could cause an electric shock, a fire or an injury. Request your Toshiba dealer for repair. Disassemble Do not put or insert anything (e.g., an electric cable, a bar or a steel wire) into the inverter, or the inverter could cause a shock or a fire.

  • Page 34

    Warning Do not connect any device or unit with a built-in capacitor (noise filter, surge suppressor, etc.) to output terminals (on the motor side), or it could cause the risk of a fire. Prohibited Prevention of radio noise Prevent interference, such as radio noise, separately install and bind cables connected to the power supply-side terminals (R/L1, S/L2 and T/L3) of the main circuit and those connected to the motor-side terminals (U/T1, V/T2 and W/T3).

    12. 2 Method of resetting causes of trip If the inverter trips because of trouble or malfunction, remove the cause of trip before resetting it. If the inverter is reset as the cause of trip remaining with it, it again trips in spite of resetting. For recovering inverter from trip status, (1) Cut off power supply (until nothing appears on the LED display).

  • Page 250: Regular Inspection And Maintenance

    13. Regular inspection and maintenance Danger Be sure to inspect the inverter regularly. If the inverter is used without regular inspection, it may cause trouble or accident because sign of disorder or failure is missed. Complete the following steps before proceeding to inspection. 1 Cut off power supply (turn off the inverter).

  • Page 251: Periodical Inspection

    13. 2 Periodical inspection Make periodical inspection at intervals of three or six months depending on operating conditions. Danger Complete the following steps before proceeding to periodical inspection. 1 Cut off power supply (turn off the inverter). 2 10 minutes or more after power cut off, check to see if the charge indicator lamp is turned off.

    Aim of replacement time of each component part can be fixed by checking operation hours of the inverter. For the replacement of parts, contact Toshiba branch office printed on the back cover of this manual. (Operation hours can be known by alarm output, if it is set.)

  • Page 253: When Making A Service Call

    13. 3 When making a service call For the Toshiba service network, refer to the back cover of this instruction manual. If defective conditions are encountered, please contact the Toshiba service section in charge via your Toshiba dealer. When making a call for servicing, let us know the contents of the rating plate on the right side of the inverter and connection of options besides details of the trouble.

  • Page 254: Warranty

    14. Warranty The inverter is warranted by Toshiba for repair and adjustment free of charge based on the following conditions. 1. Warranty is limited to the inverter's main body only. 2. If the inverter becomes out of order or damaged under the usual operating condition within 12 months after delivery, it will be repaired free of charge by Toshiba.

  • Page 255: When Disposing The Inverter

    15. When disposing the inverter Warning When disposing an inverter, do it as an industrial waste following regulations and local rules concerned. If it is disposed otherwise, it may cause injury to persons. Mandatory When disposing a used inverter, pay heed to the following points. Blasting during incineration: There is a danger that electrolytic condensers used in the inverter may burst if it is burnt in an incinerator, because electrolyte inside the condenser expands with heat.
