Introducing the Allen Bradley Powerflex 525 AC Drive

The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 525 ac drive allows machine builders and end users to simplify equipment design and have the drive up and running quickly.

Suitable for a wide range of applications, including conveyors, material handling, compressors, fans and pumps, the drive provides a variety of motor control options to accommodate open and closed-loop applications.

The Allen Bradley PowerFlex 525 ac drive contains time-saving application sets, which are groups of pre-defined parameters for common drive applications that users can apply “as is” or customize for a machine. Using a standard USB connection, machine builders can easily download the completed configurations and share with multiple drives, which greatly speeds up commissioning time.

The control module can be removed from the power module further reducing startup time as configuration and installation can be done simultaneously. Rockwell Automation Mains Free programming through a USB connection removes the need for main power during drive configuration, as well as the need for special adapters to communicate between the drive and the programming tools.

Embedded EtherNet/IP connectivity allows integration with programmable controllers to deliver more application flexibility. The optional dual-port EtherNet/IP connectivity supports device level ring (DLR) topology, providing a robust network infrastructure.

An SIL2/PLd-certified, embedded safe torque-off feature helps prevent drive restarts after a safety circuit is tripped, ultimately helping to protect personnel and equipment. The drive’s economizer mode helps optimize motor energy consumption by monitoring an application’s current demand and automatically refining operating parameters accordingly.
