INVEOR MP Modular-drive controller

Robust and highly efficient drive controller for synchronous and synchronous reluctance an asynchonous motors in the extended speed range. Extensive configuration options such as main switch, integrated braking resistor, fieldbus, Bluetooth and option modules allow an individual composition.

1. The INVEOR MP Modular

The INVEOR MP Modular has an intelligent power section that already contains all the essential control features in power electronics. A separate application card is thus superfluous and gained a lot of space in the housing, whereby the device gets extended possibilities of configuration.

Individual surface

The covers of the INVEOR MP and MP Modular have a level surface, which allows customers to fit their own controls, for example.

Pluggable mains connection

Robust industrial connectors from Harting enable fast connection of the supply voltage. Also a looping (daisy chain) is possible with this option.

Cutting connection for supply voltage

The QUICKON connector from Phoenix  Contact allows with its comfortable Cutting connection a simple connection of the supply voltage.

Plug&play as all components feature plug connectors

The extended configuration of M12 plugs for the connection of inputs / outputs and fieldbuses in combination with the industrial connectors from Harting and the QUICKON plugs from Phoenix Contact makes the INVEOR MP Modular 100% pluggable on request. Thus, the housing cover must not be opened to connect the device.

Integrated brake resistor (PTC)

Thanks to the integrated brake resistor, dynamic processes can be undertaken without additional, external brake resistors.

Optional modules

Further additional functions, such as an integrated main switch, can be depicted by selecting an optional module.

200% overload

For processes with a high starting torque and dynamic ramps, 200% overload is available for 3 seconds and 150% for 60 seconds.

2. Communication

With CANopen and Modbus, the INVEOR MP Modular offers two communication options directly on its intelligent power unit. In addition to communication via fieldbus, the INVEOR MP Modular can also be controlled via Bluetooth.

Basic communication onboard

With its intelligent power unit, the INVEOR MP Modular has integrated two field buses directly.

Bluetooth interface

The INVEOR MP offers a Bluetooth interface, which can either be integrated as a permanently installed solution or as a plug-in variant via the M12 plug.

3. Operation and observation

The INVEOR MP Modular is equipped with a membrane keyboard, an external and an integrated MMI hand-held control unit, operation via an external touch-control terminal and PC software. These are described in detail at the INVEOR M. In addition, the INVEOR MP Modular offers further possibilities.

Main switch (option)

The integrated main switch allows the supply
voltage to be fully disconnected.


The KOSTAL INVERTERapp offers a particularly convenient way commissioning and controlling the application. Quite simply, it is also possible to clone devices by simply copying parameter sets.

4. Motor adaptation

The innovative adaptation concept of the INVEOR MP Modular is identical to that of the INVEOR M and includes a comprehensive range of standard and motor-specific adapter plates. The INVEOR MP can be adapted to almost every engine on the market. Likewise, adapter plates are available for wall mounting.

Motor adapter plate

In order to mechanically install the drive controller on the motor, the INVEOR adapter plate (ADP) is used in place of the terminal box. The INVEOR can then be attached directly to this (plug-and-play). Thanks to the large number of adapter plates available, virtually any motor can be adapted. You will find suitable adapter plates in the accessories area.

5. Control process

The INVEOR MP Modular impresses with its innovative control technology and supports all motor variants (synchronous reluctance, synchronous and asynchronous motors) up to efficiency class IE5 and with maximum energy efficiency of the drive controller. It has all the control characteristics of the INVEOR M and also offers the following features.

All motor types

The INVEOR supports all motor technologies from asynchronous and the various PM synchronous motors to the synchronous reluctance motor .

Maximum speed range (without sensors)

The innovative control technology of the INVEOR drive controller without rotary encoder feedback permits a speed range of 1:200. This
means that even processes requiring a very high level of precision can be depicted.

Torque control

Torque control and torque limitation permit use in applications such as extruder worms or winding applications where constant torque
is essential. The function is available in the entire speed range without additional encoder feedback.

Support IE5 synchronous motors

The sophisticated control technology of the INVEOR MP controls state-of-the-art motors up to efficiency class IE5 and gets the most out of them
