Rockwell Automation’s new Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 753 AC drive provides versatile motor control for general-purpose applications, including fans, pumps and conveyors. The DeviceLogix control technology helps meet requirements for stand-alone applications by giving users control flexibility to combine inputs and/or outputs, as well as local logic functions. The drive also helps manufacturers minimize downtime because users can configure the drive to provide advanced notification of operating data on cooling fans, I/O relay cycles, motor run-time hours and potential fault warnings. A slot-based mechanical architecture allows customers to tailor the drive with as many options — such as I/O, feedback, safety and communications — as their application requires. It is available in power ranges from 0.75 to 250 kW or 1 to 350 Hp at 400/480V AC and 540/650V DC input.
