Schneider Electric Becomes First Manufacturer to Receive AHRI Standard 1210 Certification for Variable Frequency Drives

Schneider Electric announces that their variable frequency drives (VFDs) have received AHRI Standard 1210 certification. Developed by the Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) and approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), this certification establishes stringent rating conditions for variable frequency drives. Schneider Electric is the first and only drives manufacturer to receive this designation.

The standard seeks to provide a uniform method of measuring and comparing VFD systems by defining testing and rating requirements for efficiency, power line harmonics and motor insulation stress. This certification will allow consulting engineers to better specify VFDs based on published third-party performance data and assures customers that our products meet these defined performance ratings. The AHRI Standard 1210 Certification is the first independent, nationally recognized performance standard in the industry. Certified products include the Altivar 212, Altivar 61, S-Flex and E-Flex drives.
