Allen Bradley 1336 AC Drive Migration

What are the alternatives for Allen Bradley 1336 AC drive Migration, is a question that we often got asked, so we thought we would compile a short summary of your options.

As AC Drive technology marches on, the leading suppliers of AC Drives (Allen Bradley, ABB, Control Techniques, Danfoss, KEB, Siemens, Vacon) are continually bringing new products to the market, making it impossible to continually support older models. In this instance support for the drive maybe withdrawn due to spare components being no longer readily available, or they want the existing spares for their own warranty exchange programs.

In an ideal world when an AC Drive finally decides to give up the ghost, the ideal situation for any maintenance engineer is that  they pop along to the stores, find the same drive, download the old parameters and the machine is back up an running in no time. If the Drive is no longer available, then they will need to look at installing a more unto date model and this guide seeks to address this issue. It may be that they decide to change AC Drive Vendors completely as most AC Drives on the market have similar functionality, or it may be that they want the truest like for like replacement.

Since this publication was compiled, there are newer versions of the Allen bradley Drives available , so we will also include these as possible alternatives. If you need help on the transition, please don’t hesitate to contact Proplas at  info@proplasint.com
