ALLEN-Bradley, represented in Australia by Rockwell Automation , has released the PowerFlex 700H ac drive, designed for high-performance, reliable motor control. It is available in power ratings from 132kW to 400kW at 400V.
It is designed for applications that demand accurate open-loop speed regulation such as fans, pumps, conveyors, mixers, crushers, debarkers, centrifuges, stamping presses and simple extruders.
The drive also features excellent torque at low speeds for demanding speed control applications. It can be configured for V/Hz or sensorless vector control.
Standard I/O options for PowerFlex 700H include 24V or 115V digital I/O plus analogue I/O for added flexibility. Advanced communications allow the drive to be integrated into the manufacturing process using NetLinx options including DeviceNet, ControlNet and EtherNet/IP networks.
Programming, configuration, monitoring and troubleshooting of PowerFlex 700H are facilitated by Allen-Bradley DriveExplorer and DriveTools SP software tools in conjunction with a full-featured LCD human interface module (HIM) with multiline and multilingual text display.
In addition, the drive offers SMART start and assisted start-up routines in the LCD HIM for easy configuration and tuning.
The 700H is designed to meet worldwide power ratings and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) criteria.
