Rockwell Automation has expanded the power range of its Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 755 AC drives to 450 kW/700 Hp. Featuring improved diagnostics and a roll-out design, the PowerFlex 755 AC drive is engineered for motor control applications.
A key feature of the PowerFlex 755 extended power range drive is its roll-out capability, which is designed to allows access to the drive for installation and maintenance. The drive’s modular design helps simplify replacement of drive components, such as cooling fans, circuit boards and major subassemblies.
This modularity also allows the drive’s converter and control pod to remain in the unit while the inverter is rolled out, so control wiring can remain connected. The control pod in this drive can also be mounted remotely for access to low-voltage control and diagnostics.
The PowerFlex 755 drive comes equipped with an embedded Ethernet port and five option slots. Options include I/O, feedback, safety, additional communications and auxiliary control power input.
The PowerFlex 755 now supports Rockwell Automation Integrated Motion, allowing it to be configured and controlled using motion profiles and instruction sets in an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix controller with Rockwell Software RSLogix 5000 software.
