Increase Plant Productivity and Efficiency with Allen Bradley 755 PowerFlex AC Drives

30th August 2013 | Posted by Charlotte Miskell

The Allen Bradley range of PowerFlex 755 AC drives provide users with increased motor control application flexibility in an array of heavy industries, from oil and gas to tyres and rubber; through to metals, mining and refining.

The modular design of these Allen Bradley AC Drives help simplify the process of replacing components such as circuit boards and fans. This modularity enables the AC drive’s converter and control pod to remain within the unit, meaning integral wiring can stay connected whilst the inverter is rolled out.

An additional advantage of the 755 Allen Bradley AC drives is the possibility of remote mounting the control pod for easy access to diagnostics and voltage control. The diagnostic capabilities of these AC drives include indicating blown fuses and surge protectors. These send alarms straight to the main control to aid with troubleshooting, proving essential to help protect the inside of the drive and, ultimately, the user’s investment.

Maintenance and upkeep of the PowerFlex 755 drives is a breeze, as it is easy to monitor and track operating data on cooling fans, motor run times, I/O relay cycles, which helps to significantly reduce unplanned downtime.

The PowerFlex 775 AC drive comes complete with embedded Ethernet port and f5 option slots to allow users to customise the drive in order for it to be tailored to their application.

Rockwell Automation’s ability to support variable frequency drives, I/O, smart actuators, motion drives and other EtherNet/IP-connected devices on a common network all increase flexibility of design, improve plant  performance and reduce engineering and help control upkeep costs.
