Schneider Altivar 32 Drive

Altivar 32 – Drives for complex machines 0.18 to 15 kW

The extra-slim format offers numerous advantages in the control of asynchronous and synchronous motors operating in open loop mode.

Narrower product (45 mm wide)

  • Vertical mounting, side-by-side or sideways
  • Circuit-breaker connected directly to the product (same 45 mm width)
  • Embedded Bluetooth®: remote adjustment and parameter setting via mobile phone or PC
  • Configuration with the power off in its original packaging Greater autonomy
  • Integrated programmable logic functions

More safety functions

  • STO (Safe Torque Off)
  • SLS (Safely Limited Speed) with SDI
  • (Safe Direction) included
  • SS1 (Safe Stop 1)
  • Power supply on each motor starter isolated by padlockable circuit-breaker

More openness:

  • Either Modbus or CANopen is integrated as standard.
  • Numerous other industrial communication networks can be accessed by simply inserting a communication cassette in the drive.
  • CANopen Daisy Chain (for connecting the drives in a daisy chain easily)
  • EtherNet/IP – Modbus TCP (double port)
  • Profibus
  • DeviceNet
  • EtherCat
  • Etc. Tools common to several other Schneider Electric products, adapted to each type of user
    (cable installer, programmer, operator)
  • Remote graphic display terminal for remote configuration
  • Multi Loader for storing configurations and loading them quickly
  • Simple Loader for duplicating and loading a configuration SoMove software for configuring on PC and transferring the configuration via Bluetooth® or using a cable SoMove Mobile software for modifying or sending a configuration remotely via mobile phone Benefits


  • Extremely compact motor starter unit
  • Enclosures can be 40% smaller Very complete
  • More than 150 integrated application functions
  • Performs simple control system functions
  • Machine safety functions as standard Very user-friendly
  • Quick wiring and programming thanks to special tools
  • Configuration in its original packaging even with the power off Open
  • Communicates with most industrial networks
  • CANopen or Modbus as standard Economical
  • 10% more energy efficiency, on average, with a synchronous motor in open loop mode, by optimising performance at low speed.
  • Applications Hoisting machines Simple packaging machines Material handling machines Textile machines Special machines: wood-working machines, metal processing machinery (bending, welding, etc.)
