VFD Replacement Options
Due to the microchip shortage in version 1.60 of the Retro C software Enventek has significate changes in order to support multiple types of VFDs (Variable Frequency Drives). This comes at a time when our main supplier of VFD’s retired a product and new products are hard to get. In 2022 Enventek has worked to keep your Retro C products running by providing support for multiple drives in the same location. Current drives supported are listed below.
New models supported
GS10 Series Drives
GS20 Series Drives
Weg CFW100 Series Drives
Weg CFW300 Series Drives
Weg CFW500 Series Drives
FMX Series Drives
Old models supported
GS1 Series Drives — Retired
GS2 Series Drives — Retired
GS3 Series Drives — Retired
All of these drives may require different mounting and fuses however the wires should stay the same. The Blade motors require STO Modules for safety and all drives require Modbus communication which on the CFW100 and 300 series is an extra module.
Note in order to change drive versions at this time you will need to contact Enventek Technical support.
