Parker SSD AC30 Inverter Drive Builder

Select the options to suit your specific application


The AC30 is a modular product allowing users to select power stack, control module, IO and communications modules and accessories to perfectly match the requirements of the application, making it a highly customisable yet cost effective solution. The three interchangeable control modules provide the basis for the series: the standard AC30V control module, the AC30P module with a host of advanced connectivity options and the AC30D module which adds dual encoder system capability.

Parker AC30 Blow Up


AC30V Control Module

The AC30V is the base drive for standalone applications. Much more than a basic pump and fan drive its program can be modified with our easy to use “Parker Drive Quicktool” (PDQ) to match your exact requirements. The completed application program can then be downloaded multiple times using a simple SD card. With full access from any network via its own IP address the drive can be fully integrated into any automation system via the single, top-mounted ethernet port.

AC30P Control Module

Supporting latest developments in the “Internet of things” and employing principles discussed in Industry 4.0 the AC30P is fully equipped with Profinet, Ethernet IP and Modbus TCP/IP via dual Ethernet ports. Using the full range of our software tools this allows more advanced applications including multiple drive configurations. Plug in via one port and access multiple drives supported by 1588 time synchronised peer to peer communication.

AC30D Control Module

The AC30D module gives you the great features of the AC30P as well as additional built in terminals to allow dual encoder inputs and an encoder output. This gives “system Board” functionality to the AC30 allowing “electronic line shaft” capability so with this control module we can offer phase locking between drives and register control. This also frees up the I/O plug in slot to allow for even more I/O to be added if needed.

System Design - Power

Common DC Bus System (supply from a single drive)

DC Bus System
Common DC bus system using a standard (710) inverter to supply the DC link. This design allows power sharing between drives, limiting the need for braking resistors. The power of the drives on the DC bus must not exceed double the power of the supply drive. In all common DC systems the braking between drives is synchronised allowing brake resistors to be added to one or more drives to best fit the requirements of the application.

Common DC Bus System (supply to all drives)

Common DC Bus System all drives
Common DC bus system using a standard (710) inverter with DC bus connection to all drives. This design allows power sharing between drives, limiting the need for braking resistors. Consideration is needed to include input chokes which can be required on each drive to balance the input currents between drives.

Common DC Bus System (Active Front End - AFE)

Common DC Bus System all drives
Common DC bus system using a 710 or 740 power stack and AC30P / D control modules to act as the AFE supply unit. The AFE must have the correct LCL filter to provide a pulse width modulated (PWM) controlled IGBT converter solution to allow bi-directional power flow to the AC line. The AFE is designed for applications with a high level of regeneration into the mains supply as no energy is wasted into braking resistors. The AFE solution also provides low harmonics, unity power factor and can provide voltage boost.

Common DC Bus System (regenerative supply)

Common DC Bus System all drives
Common DC bus system using a 380 line regen supply unit for cost sensitive applications where low harmonic performance is not required. The line regen unit is a compact and cost effective solution for DC supply to any AC30 drive system.

AC30 Inverter Features


Simple and effective pump and fan control

Saving energy through speed control

Pumps and fans are widely used throughout industry. Some estimates suggest that a large proportion of these can be as much as 20% oversized for the application they are used in. When these are operated at a constant speed, a significant amount of the power consumed by the motor is wasted, costing your company considerable amounts of money and creating additional CO2 emissions. Matching the speed of pumps and fans to process demands with the AC30V ensures that the motor will always operate at the optimal speed to deliver just the right amount of air or fluid. This can result in significant energy savings. A 20% reduction in speed will actually reduce energy consumption by almost 50% and payback can be achieved in less than 18 months in many cases.
