Allen Bradley Powerflex 527 AC Drive

OEM’S are constantly looking for ways to improve their machines while reducing costs and complexity. The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 527 AC drive from Rockwell Automation helps them achieve this goal.

The Allen Bradley PowerFlex 527 AC Drive is the first AC drive designed to work exclusively with a Logix-based programmable logic controller and uses a single software package – Rockwell Software Studio 5000 Logix Designer – to help simplify machine development and operation.

The Allen Bradley PowerFlex 527 AC Drive is the perfect partner to machines using Allen-Bradley CompactLogix, ControlLogix or GuardLogix PLC’s and Allen-Bradley Kinetix servo drives. The PowerFlex 527 drive uses embedded instructions shared with Kinetix servo drives, providing the same user experience for configuration, programming and control of both types of drives, helping save valuable engineering time.

The PowerFlex 527 drive also offers a low-cost solution for machine applications – such as pumps, fans, and conveyors – that need simple speed control for induction motors. The servo drive handles the more precise motor control operations involving speed, torque and position control.

Once programmed, drive configuration files can be more easily transferred to a new machine. Additionally, the Allen-Bradley Logix PLC’s family can automatically detect a replaced drive and download all configuration settings over EtherNet/IP, reducing downtime.

The PowerFlex 527 drive uses a standard EtherNet/IP infrastructure and features built-in, dual-port EtherNet/IP functionality. The infrastructure enables networked safety, which helps reduce the costs associated with acheiving a SIL 3/PLe safety solution.

The use of networked safety also reduces panel space and allows access to more diagnostic data on machine safety faults and causes, without requiring contactors or relays. The PowerFlex 527 drive is the first Allen-Bradley variable frequency drive to offer that capability. The drive also offers an embedded, safe torque off function option for hardwired safety.

The PowerFlex 527 drive is available in five frame sizes, power ratings from 0.4 to 22 kW (0.5 to 30 Hp), and voltage ratings of 100 to 600V.
