Description Spec Sheet / Manual Technical Specifications
  • Presentation

    The Altivar 212 is a variable speed drive for 3-phase asynchronous motors from 0.75 kW to 75 kW. It is specifically intended for the most commonly encountered fluid management applications in tertiary sectorbuildings (HVAC): heating, ventilation, air conditioning and pumping.Due to its eco-energy based design, energy savings of up to 70% can be achieved compared to a traditional control system.


    • Altivar 212 covers motor powers between 0.75 kW and 75 kW on the following supplies:
      •200…240V 3-phase, from 0.75 kW to 30 kW, IP 21
      •380…480V 3-phase, from 0.75 kW to 75 kW, IP 21
      •380…480V 3-phase, from 0.75 kW to 75 kW, UL Type 12/IP 55
    • Speed range: 1:50
    • Transient overtorque: 110% - 60 s.
    • Integrated EMC filters, categories C1 to C3 depending on model
    • Communication bus most commonly used on the market integrated: Modbus, METASYS N2®, APOGEE FLN P1® and BACnet®. Optional: LonWorks
    • Complies to international standards and certifications: UL, CSA, C-Tick and NOM
    • Antiharmonic technology enables a THDI < 30% to be achieved

  • Benefits

    Centred on Centralised Technical Management

    • Instant viewing of the energy consumption.
    • Detection of failures for quick intervention: belt breakage, pump running dry, phase failure, supply fault, etc.
    • Preventative maintenance for reducing costs and optimising the equipment: fault alert, operating time, etc.
    • Connection to building supervision network using embedded protocols.

    Centred on user-friendliness

    • Tools for installing, parametering and viewing the installation (remote graphic terminal in 6 languages, Multi-Loader, Bluetooth and SoMove Mobile).
    • Compact size.
    • Simple maintenance.

    Centred on protection

    • Continuity of service assured.
    • Dedicated “Building” series functions (fire mode, register monitoring, mechanical protection function, etc.
    • Integrated EMC filter, antiharmonic technology (THDI ˜ 30%).
  • Applications


    • Less noise pollution (airdraulic noise, motor noise, etc.).
    • Detection of transmission component breakage.
    • Smoke extraction: forced start with fault inhibition.
    • Automatic restart.
    • Allows register management.

    Heating and Air conditioning:

    • Optimise control in fluid processing.
    • Use of PID controller (temperature, flow rate, pressure, etc.).
    • Adjustable flow rates for better energy management.
    • Suppression of mechanical resonance.


    • Detection of underload/overload, pump running dry.
    • Multi-motor configuration.
    • Limitation of operating time at low speed.
    • Sleep/Wake function.
    • Pressure surge suppression for prolonging the life of the installation.
