Electronic Programming Module (EPM)

Program the SMVector quickly and easily using the electronic programming module (EPM). The EPM stores the drive’s parameter configuration and simplifies initial setup:

Three ways to program the EPM
 • Use the intuitive SMVector integrated keypad
 • Program in a Microsoft WindowsTM  environment with Techlink
 • Or with the lightweight portable EPM programmer. The crystal clear 16-character LCD display makes programming multiple drives a snap.
The EPM saves time and money. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…
 1. Create your parameter profile and archive to the EPM programmer, a master EPM or your PC.
 2. Insert the EPM into the programmer and copy parameters in a matter of seconds!
 3. Plug the EPM into the drive and it is fully programmed and ready to go.

Imagine programming 20 drives in less than one minute!

• Improve efficiency. Program the drive anytime and anywhere it makes sense during your manufacturing or commissioning process. You can even plug in a fully programmed EPM before connecting the drive to power.  Now the drive is ready and waiting for power to be connected.

• Safeguard your configuration. When you program the EPM your parameter settings are automatically archived.  This truly unique feature allows the SMVector to be reset to factory default settings or to customer settings.

The EPM. Another example of the innovative thinking that separates Lenze-AC Tech from its competition.

SMVector Performance

Exceptional Starting Torque
Overpower demanding applications

SMVector Drive Overview

The SMVector is peerless in controlling the motor’s ability to convert current into torque. In this example, the SMVector is started into a stiff 195% torque load. Not only does the motor start the load, but it also delivers a full 195% torque while accelerating to 50 Hz in 8 seconds.

Dynamic Speed Regulation
Recovery from 100% shock load in 0.15 seconds

SMVector Drive Overview

Shock loads are no match for the SMVector. Here an instantaneous 100% load is dealt with in a mere 0.15 seconds. Remarkably, this level of speed regulation is achieved open loop without the benefit of a feedback device.

Quick Acceleration
0 to 100 in 0.33 seconds!

SMVector Drive Overview

Motors controlled by the SMVector benefit from a sophisticated motor control algorithm that drives motor performance to maximum levels. In this application the the motor is able to drive a 165% torque load while accelerating from 0 to 100% speed in an impressive 0.33 seconds.
