UNIFREM 400 E is the latest generation of small dimensions frequency converters family. UNIFREM 400 E is made for 3 x 400 V supply, available up to 3 kW. All UNIFREM converters allow high-performance scalar (V/f) control. UNIFREM 400 E drives are designed to solve most of drive problems in the industrial applications. The family is specified by its user-friendly settings and control, users are guided by the graphic display. The latest generation of MITSUBISHI power electronics has been used for minimization of losses while allowing higher switching frequency. Grid disturbance is kept to a minimum.

Features and advantages of UNIFREM E


High resistance against fault immiting
UNIFREM converters include protection against overvoltage, undervoltage, current overloading of converter, short circuit between input phases and overheating. Input and output phase loss are detected as well. Overheating of motor is suppressed by calculating the heat integral of the motor.

Minimal disturbance to the supply power grid
Optional input commutation chokes are lowering the harmonic distortion (EN 61800–3). Standard use of noise suppresing filters ensures minimal disturbance to the power grid (EN 61000–6-4).

Minimal losses
Use of the newest power electronics has lowered and minimalized converter losses and power grid disturbance.

Smaller dimensions
By the use of power optimized heat sink together with improved heat-transfer-targeted placement of power components smaller dimensions have been achieved.

High reliability
The latest generation power capacitors with extended operating temperature and lifetime by 20% as well as the newest power electronics components have been used. The cooling fans with high-quality bearings ensure longer lifetime and lower noise level.

Rich software features

Events and faults history
Configurable history of faults, warnings and other events with capacity of latest 256 items.


Communication with the operators:
Inteligent user interface designed for easy configuration and reliable diagnostic using the inbuilt graphical LCD display.

VONSCH Drive Studio
Application for configuration, diagnostics and archiving of settings to PC. It allows: firmware upgrade, process diagnostic "black box" data. Diagnostics of faults and events helps the operator to solve the problems and avoid the future ones.

Standard equipment:

Noise suppresing filter
Eliminates disturbances to the power grid (EN 61000–6-4)

Brake module
Electronics for brake resistor control used in generator mode of operation


Three phase commutation choke KT1
Choke Minimization of harmonic currents from the power grid. (EN 61800–3)

Motor (output) choke MT1
MT1 Output motor chokes are used in case when the distance between the converter and the motor is higher than 100m (non-shielded cable) or 50m (shielded cable). Cable capacitance effects are eliminated by the motor choke or sine filter.

Brake resistor BO1
Brake resistor Ensures dissipation of kinetic energy in the regenerative mode of motor operation.

Sine filter SF1
Sine filter Sine filter filters the output PWM voltage of the inverter to the sine wave of variable frequency and amplitude. This will limit the peak current and capacitive motor insulation stress. When using the EMC sinus filter, it is not necessary to use the shielded cable. It is necessary to set the switching frequency of IGBT power elements to at least 4 kHz, when using the Sine filter!
