AC drive wired and wireless communication solutions address the increasing demand for industrial communication enabling Industry 4.0. Many different industrial communication standards based on Ethernet such as PROFINET, Ether CAT, or RS485/CAN (PROFIBUS or Device NET) require deterministic, low latency and robust communication. Industrial AC drives need to support multiple industrial interface standards. In next generation AC drives, wireless solutions such as BLE or Wi-Fi are used for configuration through the operator's portable HMI or smart phone to allow easier access the AC Drive's parameters. All interfaces need to meet the IEC61800-3 EMC immunity requirements for robust communication in harsh industrial environments.
