Rockwell Automation releases PowerFlex series to increase productivity and reduce energy costs
Rockwell Automation has introduced a suite of drive solutions that will help users reduce energy costs and increase machine uptime for assets running in high-demand applications. The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 755T drives provide harmonic mitigation, regeneration and common bus system configurations.
The latest PowerFlex drive offering marks the introduction of TotalFORCE technology from Rockwell Automation. This drive technology delivers superior motor control through precise, adaptive control of velocity, torque and position for electric motors. TotalFORCE technology incorporates several features that are designed to help optimize a user’s system and maintain productivity.
The expanded Allen-Bradley drive portfolio includes the PowerFlex 755TL low-harmonic drive, PowerFlex 755TR regenerative drive, and PowerFlex 755TM common DC bus drive system, all compliant to the IEEE 519 specification. These drives offer the additional advantages of a world-class footprint, comprehensive diagnostic and maintenance features, and simplified startup and installation.
The three drive solutions have advanced, predictive diagnostics to estimate and provide notification of the remaining life span of drive components, such as fans, relay contacts, power semiconductors and capacitors. Users can actively monitor parameters, such as temperature and runtime, of the drive and motor to allow for preventive action if necessary.
