The more efficient a drive, the lower the energy costs. The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 755T drives offer harmonic mitigation, regeneration and common bus system configurations. The latest versions include TotalFORCE technology, which enhances motor control through precise, adaptive control of velocity, torque and position of electric motors.
AC drive technology is an important investment for our customers, and they want their application up and running every possible minute,” said Brad Arenz, product manager, Rockwell Automation. “The PowerFlex 755T drives have been designed to provide savings from installation, through operation and maintenance with advanced features that allow you to optimize use of your assets.”
This line of drives includes:
PowerFlex 755TL drive, which uses active, front-end technology and an internal harmonic filter to reduce harmonic distortion. The drive is available from 250 to 1,800 Hp (160 to 1250 kW).
PowerFlex 755TR drive, which delivers power from 250 to 3,000 Hp (130 to 2,300 kW). It includes regenerative and harmonic mitigation solutions. The drive helps reduce energy consumption and costs by delivering energy back to the incoming supply, resulting in a more energy-efficient solution.
PowerFlex 755TM drive system, which lets users build the system that best fits their needs for regeneration and coordination of multiple motors in common bus configurations. To optimize their system requirements and meet power-consumption needs, users can select from a series of predesigned modules with a power range from 250 to 3,000 Hp (130 to 2,300 kW).
The three drive solutions have 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.
Key to simplified installation and maintenance is a design that allows complete removal of a module from the cabinet. This creates ample space for wire installation and allows the power wiring to stay connected while the module is rolled out.
The drives can be fully configured in the Rockwell Software Studio 5000 design environment. This helps to reduce programming time, simplify startup and streamline diagnostics.
