Driving > Optidrive Plus 3GV
Optidrive Plus 3GV is the natural evolution of the Optidrive family adding ultimate motor control to established Optidrive benchmarks of control and ease of use.

Optidrive Plus 3GV uses 3GV technology, a revolutionary and patented motor control strategy. 3GV technology delivers 200% torque at 0.0Hz allowing this unique open loop product to be used without any feedback device in many traditional closed loop applications.

Only the motor name plate data is required to achieve optimum performance, the drive continuously and automatically determines and tracks the key motor characteristics required for vector control.

Optidrive Plus 3GV can be commissioned using the unique Optiwand CE Plus software designed for use on pocket pc’s. Communication takes place without wires using infrared light to quickly and accurately transfer data.

Communication Interfaces
  Interface Protocol Baud (bps) Purpose Connections
RS485 RS485 Modbus RTU 9k6 - 115k High bandwidth control systems Drive to plc
Drive to fieldbus gateway
Optibus Plus 115K Low bandwidth control systems Drive to pc (optistore)
  Drive to drive (unlimited slaves)

Commissioning Commissioning
Master – Slave / Drive to Drive Communication
Master – slave networks can be easily created by connecting the communication ports. Optiwand CE Plus can be used for commissioning individual drives through the optical port even when the drives are connected in an RS485 network.
Drive Networks to Intelligent Controllers
High bandwidth control systems can be created for up to 63 drives connected to an intelligent network with RS485/ Modbus RTU. Optiport Plus and/ or Optistore Plus can run on the same network using an RS485/ Optibus Plus connection for monitoring purposes, but not for control.
