3.3 to 11 kV, up to 7,350 kVA (8,000 HP)

The TMdrive-MVe2 is a medium voltage, AC fed drive designed for high-efficiency and power-friendly operation in a broad range of industrial applications.

High reliability, low harmonic distortion, regenerative operation and reactive power control operation are designed into the drive.


The TMdrive-MVe2 is designed for a wide range of industrial applications, including: Centrifugal pumps, fans, and compressors, screw compressors, blowers, refiners, mixers, extruders, conveyors, press machines, slurry pipelines, mills, hot gas expanders, etc.

Energy regeneration capability is included, allowing braking of overhauling loads and rapid stopping of loads such as fans and pumps.
