The SAC series is manufactured taking advantage of experiences gained though years of volume production, resulting in a very cost efficient, high quality product. All AC components are selected from brand name manufacturers ensuring the best quality and worldwide access to spare parts.

Standard range are designed for 230V or 400V systems. Setup for alternative power supply specifications can be delivered on request.

Side-Power S-Link

All Side-Power AC models use the S-link ”CAN” based control system with full intelligent communication between all units in the system, much like a computer network.

Low Harmonic VFD’s

In addition to the standard VFD’s, we can deliver systems with Low Harmonic VFD required in installations with specific requirements to the THD (Total Harmonic Distortion). A Side-Power AC thruster system with Low Harmonic VFD will suppress the current harmonic content leaving distortion of less than 5%.
