Remote Control
Remote control of the Inverters can be done by contact input
signals (START / STOP Switches) or communication.

Fault Ride Through (FRT) Low Voltage Ride Through (LVRT) Output Power Limiting Function
Against sudden changes of amplitude or phase of AC Voltage, When the Hitachi inverters output exceeds its maximum value, the
