Frequently Asked Questions about 2GU21005

What is the recommended input fuse rating on a GP2000 2GU21005?
The recommended input fuse rating is 25 amps on a 2GU21005. The max allowable input fuse rating on a 2GU21005 is 30 amps.
Does it help to install a transformer on a 2GU21005?
Transformers are not always needed on 2GU21005 drives. However, installing an isolation transformer on a 2GU21005 can help eliminate damaging A-C line voltage transients from reaching the 2GU21005 controller, reduce line noice, and eliminate dangerous currents that could develop when the 2GU21005 becomes grounded.
Does AX Control have reconditioned 2GU21005 drives?
We sell both reconditioned and new surplus of 2GU21005 drives. The reconditioned 2GU21005 drives have been through an extensive repair and recondition process. We guarantee satisfaction on both our new surplus of 2GU21005 drives as well as our reconditioned surplus of 2GU21005 drives.
Is there a manual for the 2GU21005?
There is not a manual specific to the 2GU21005, but we would be happy to send you a link to the GP2000 Instruction Manual in which the manual identifies the 2GU21005 specifically. The manual is a user-friendly manual and the manual can help you through the installation process of your 2GU21005 along with troubleshooting issues that may occur on the 2GU21005.

Product Description

Reliance Electric created the 2GU21005 to be a 5HP 50/60 Hz AC Drive. Depending on when it was actually in production, this drive could have also been made by Baldor Reliance and Asea Brown Boveri. None of these initial companies still maintain the 2GU21005, but AX Control does try to keep it in stock. Please consult the website for more availability information.

The 2GU21005 is a 3-Phase 230V AC GP2000 series drive. This drive is encased in a NEMA 1 rated chassis. This drive has the ability to be rated using 3-phase input power or with single-phase input power. If you choose to operate the drive using a single-phase, you still have to use a 3-phase motor. The 3-phase ratings are 5 HP, 230 V, 7.8 KVA input, 19.6 amps of maximum input, a sine wave motor rating of 15.2 amps, and 16.7-amp maximum drive output. The single-phase input power ratings are 2 HP, 230 V, a 3.5 KVA input, max input amps of 15.2, a sine wave motor max of 6.8 amps, and a maximum drive output of 7.5 amps.

The 2GU21005 has many standard features common to the GP2000 series of drive drives. This drive has a 0-400HZ frequency range. It has the ability to control the PWM. It has a short circuit protection feature for the line-to-ground and line-to-line output. This drive has the ability to be surface mounted. It has 57 adjusting drive configurations. With an optional card, the drive can have a serial communication ability. This device has a microprocessor-based regulator.
