  • Create new drive configurations using Quick Start, Detailed or Schematic Views
  • Upload/ download drive configurations
  • Edit drive configuration
  • Archive/ store multiple drive configurations on your personal computer(PC)
  • Trend drive operation parameters
  • Tune the drive PID loop
  • View drive faults
  • Print a schematic representation of the drive configurations

Communication Options


Ethernet and RS485 communication capabilities are available for the GS Series / DURApulse drives.
  • New! ... Ethernet Drive Module (GS-EDRV100)
  • The GS-EDRV provides a high-performance Ethernet link between a control system and any GS or DURApulse AC drive.
  • The GS-EDRV100 processes signals to and from the drive, mounts on 35mm DIN rail, and connects the drive to an Ethernet hub or PC.
  • It formats drive signals to conform with the Ethernet standard and transmits these signals to the H2-ERM or H4-ERM, Productivity3000, KEPDirect OPC Server, KEPDirect EBC I/O Server, or independent controller with a Modbus TCP/IP driver. This allows for greater connectivity to many control system architectures.
  • An additional feature is the built-in Web browser which allows users to configure and control the drive from any Web browser via the IP address of the GS-EDRV100 module.
  • The GS series drives have a provision for shutting down control or power to the inverter in the event of a communications time-out.

DURApulse (GS3 Series) Drive Accessories


Feedback Card (GS3-FB):
Used to add another layer of precision control to the already precise control algorithm used in the DURApulse drives. This added control is activated by selecting control modes V/Hz closed loop control or sensorless vector with external feedback. The feedback mechanism uses pulses generated by an external encoder or pulse generator. Unlike other feedback types, the GS3-FB accommodates the four most common signal types: output, voltage, open collector, line driver, and complementary.

Remote Panel Adapter (GS3-BZL):
The GS3-BZL has a protected chassis, IP20 enclosure rating. The thickness of the panel will determine required screw hole dimensions.

RF Filter (RF220X00A):
Zero phase reactors, (a.k.a. RF noise filters), help reduce radiated noise from the inverter wiring. RF filters reduce the radio frequency interference or noise on the input or output side of the inverter.
