November 27, 2018



The Lenze i500 is an innovative frequency inverter series in the 0.33 to 177 Hp (0.25 to 132 kW) power range. With a streamlined design, scalable functionality and exceptional user-friendliness, the i500 provides a high-quality frequency inverter that already conforms to future standard in accordance with the EN 50598-2 efficiency classes (IE).

Overall, the Lenze i500 series provides reliable and future-proof drives for a wide range of machine applications, such as: traveling drives, conveyor drives, shaper drives, pumps and fans, tool drives, hoist drives and winding drives.

The right i500 can be customized, or scaled, to suit the application. The term “scaled” refers to the series’ two optimized products: the i510 as the basic design with predefined modes and the high-capacity modular i550 for a variety of applications. The inverter is also scalable via an accessory kit. You can simply select all the necessary components oriented to your application.
