The Neos Variable Speed Drive is Now Available on Atlas Copco Oil-Free ZR/ZT Compressors

September 28, 2017

Atlas Copco, a leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions, has expanded its Neos Variable Speed Drive (VSD) technology to include the water- and air-cooled ZR/ZT 75-90 VSD range of oil-free compressors, guaranteeing maximum uptime and productivity.

“The technology was designed in-house and first integrated on the GA series oil-injected screw compressors five years ago. It has demonstrated time-proven reliability in the harshest environments, and we’re excited to offer it on the ZR/ZT 75-90 oil-free line of our equipment. The in-house design uses few components and is a compact, simple, user-friendly drive, designed specifically to handle the unique torque requirements of the Atlas Copco screw compressor.”

Neil Breedlove, vice president of oil-free compressors at Atlas Copco Compressors LLC

The Neos inverter was created to provide everything a VSD compressor needs without the unnecessary features. Designed in-house by Atlas Copco, Neos inverters are specifically adapted for Atlas Copco compressors in terms of size, simplicity and reliability. When added to the ZR/ZT 75-90 VSD range, the Neos inverter allows for a wider working range in two pressure variants of 8.6 bar and 10.4 bar. The in-house design guarantees the availability of spare parts and replacements and allows for improved control over the lifecycle of the application.

The Neos inverter has endured extensive testing, guaranteeing high protection and optimized cooling. Its compact, robust aluminum enclosure with IP 5X rating keeps dust away from sensitive electronics for trouble-free operation even in harsh industrial conditions.

Long-term sustainability was an important factor in creating this technology. With fewer components, the Neos inverter has less of an impact on the environment at the end of its lifecycle. The Neos inverter is a reliable and sustainable solution for both the oil-injected GA VSD screw compressors and the ZR/ZT 75-90 VSD range.
