AC Variable Speed Drives Less Than 500hp
(Click here to go to our store to browse inverter drives)

Note: While many of our Hitachi drives can operate with either single-phase or three-phase input current, the ONLY type of motor they can control is a three-phase motor. The drives below cannot be used to control the speed of single-phase motors.

>>3 phase 220VAC drives can be run on 220VAC single phase. The drive has to be upsized in amperage rating. Click here to download a 2-page spec sheet for details.

Please check out the Hitachi SJ700D line for basic pump/fan
applications as well as requirements that call for a full-featured
drive. The SJ700D provides unparalled versatility.

L700 Series (Note: This line is now obsolete and no longer available. The L700
was also a replacement for the L300P series...which is also obsolete.)

 

Please check out the Hitachi SJ700D
line for basic pump/fan drives.


 SJ300 Series (Note: This line is now obsolete and no longer available)
