The PowerGate H Series “slimline” bypass controller from Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. is designed to provide a single, scalable, off–the–shelf fan and pump control solution for the HVAC market.
PowerGate H Series HVAC controllers offer the functionality of an HVAC bypass controller and the reliability of the Mitsubishi Electric FR-F800 variable frequency drive (VFD), with both manual and automatic bypass control. Software functions include embedded control algorithms to maximize energy usage, real time energy monitoring functions, broken belt detection and other preventive maintenance functions. In addition, motor load is intelligently monitored by the drive, and output voltage is adjusted to match.
PowerGate H is fully compatible with earlier generations of Mitsubishi Electric controllers and meets the requirements of the most demanding applications. It can be used with either conventional induction motors or with the latest generation internal permanent magnet (IPM) motors. PowerGate H uses a third bypass contactor to ensure that the drive is completely disconnected from the circuit when used in bypass mode.
