Atlas Copco Compressors has introduced proprietary drive technology for oil-injected screw compressors with variable speed drive in the 50-125-hp range. Robust and efficient, the Neos drive is specifically designed to meet the demands of heavy-duty air compressor applications. In comparison to traditional drives that are typically designed for light-duty applications with quadratic torque curves, the new drive technology was designed specifically for applications that have a constant torque curve, allowing the compressor to meet the demands of heavy-duty applications. The Neos drive features an IP5x rated enclosure, which greatly reduces the risk of drive failure by blocking the introduction of outside contaminants into the electronic drive. In addition, the Neos drive features simplified controls and options that cater to the specific needs of an air compressor application.
