I2hd continuous base current with 150% overload for 1 minute / 10 minutes
180% Ihd continuous base current available for 2 seconds / 1 minute

The rated current of the ACS550 must be greater than or equal to the rated motor current to achieve the rated motor power given in the table.

All U1 models come with a conduit box and advanced control panel as standard.

Horsepower is based on NEMA motor ratings for most 4-pole motors (1800 rpm). Check motor nameplate current for compatibility.

All 230V product can be operated on 230V single-phase power, using a de-rate of the output current of 50%.

All U2 models come standard with US conduit openings, top entry / top exit, common mode filter for drives larger than 200 Hp, fused disconnect and extended enclosure with advanced control panel.
