FactoryMation offers four lines from the CFW series: CFW100, CFW300, CFW500, and CFW08. All four categories of CFW AC drives offer the option of either vector or scalar control. The CFW100, CFW300, and CFW500 models operate with free programming software conveniently located on FactoryMation’s website. The CFW100 features a built-in programmable logic controller (PLC) that enables the drive, motor, and application to work interactively and for the user to customize the program logic. CFW300 and 500 models both utilize a software-based PLC. Starting at $124, WEG CFW AC drives are just another example of FactoryMation’s commitment to offering an unmatched value for industrial control and automation products.
