Control Techniques SP2401 Overview

The Control Techniques product SP 2401 is a dependable AC variable speed drive that offers power and control in a precise package. It is a 3-phase drive that is manufactured for use with appropriate motors, controllers, and electrical protection components in an industrial system. These products are manufactured in United Kingdom and are designed for Metal production, paper processing, and material conveying usage. They come with a 2-year warranty from MRO Electric. We also carry AC Drives from other manufacturers such as Siemens and Yaskawa.

The SP 2401 is a high-performing, reliable drive that is the most efficient way to gain motor control. This energy-efficient drive is produced for advancing your automation, and meeting the needs of your business.


The Control Techniques SP 2401 has a typical input current of 15.7 A with a maximum continuous input rate of 17 A. The Class CC or J fuse rating on this module is 20 A. It is important that you do not exceed 30 A. You also want to make sure that the cable is a proper fitting cable. For the SP 2401, the UL508C size is 12 AWG input and 14 AWG output.

The fault current is limited to no more than five times the rated output current because the output circuit has quick-acting short-circuit protection in place. It interrupts the current in around 20 µs. The Control Techniques drive SP 2401 administers protection in the case of overload. It accomplishes this for the motor and the cable. Please check with the manual to ensure proper cable length for your frequency use is followed.

How to use an SP 2401

Procedure for changing the operating mode. 

All parameters return to their default value when the operating mode is changed. The motor parameters are also returned to default values.  The two items not changed to default value are the Security status and the User security code. 

To change the operating mode ensure the drive is not enabled. Then enter either value 1253 or 1254 in Pr xx00. 

The Control Techniques SP 2401 drive is easily programmable allowing for better control which gives you better performance. Smooth-running automation offers efficiency.

The SP 2401 AC variable speed drive offers two external EMC filter options to give you a little bit of flexibility.

Both EMC filters are able to be footprint mounted on the module or bookcase mounted and are both in compliance with general emission standards.

To understand if this is the right drive for you always check the values of the drive. Always take the time to ensure the current ratings match the part you are looking for. 

The more you know about the SP 2401 output circuit and motor protection, the more likely you will be happy with your decision to purchase this drive.
