With the continuous development of cranes, it is difficult for traditional control technology to meet the increasingly high speed regulation and control requirements of cranes. Today, with the rapid development of electronic technology, the combination of crane and electronic technology is becoming more and more close, and the AC variable frequency speed control device replaces the traditional motor rotor series resistance speed control method. Among many AC variable frequency speed control devices, D32 frequency converter has made it widely used in various applications due to its stability of performance, richness of option expansion functions, flexibility of programming environment, excellent torque characteristics and adaptability to use in different occasions. Inverter occupies a very important position in the high-end market.

Features of Qidian inverter QD6000


D32 is a wall-mounted inverter, the power range is 0.75KW-500KW, the voltage level of the incoming line voltage is 380V-480V, and the control method is vector control without speed sensor. D32 has a wealth of substations, including 8 digital inputs (LI1-LI8), 2 analog inputs (AI), 2 relay outputs (TA), 2 analog outputs (AO), 5V auxiliary power supply for analog power supply Fixed input, 24V auxiliary power supply is used for digital input, all LI/TA, AI/AO can be freely programmed to define functions.

MODBUS interface is standard configuration of D32, no option is required. The D32 can be connected to higher-level automation systems via MODBUS.

Solution advantage


  • With excellent low-frequency torque characteristics, it can provide 0.5Hz 150% of the rated torque to ensure the smooth start of the variable frequency crane.

  • Reliable brake logic control, the brake time is adjustable, while ensuring that the hook does not slip, it also avoids the large inrush current of the motor.

  • The acceleration and deceleration process is in accordance with the S-curve mode, which increases the stability of the work, reduces the mechanical impact, and prolongs the service life of the equipment.

  • The starting current is small, the current impact on the power grid is small, the waste of power supply is greatly reduced, and the energy saving effect is obvious.

  • Complete protection function, improve safety factor and facilitate inspection and maintenance.

  • It has strong environmental adaptability, and the completely independent air duct design can greatly improve the resistance to harsh environments such as oil pollution, dust and damp heat.
