Rockwell Automation releases compact PowerFlex 6000T drive
September 10, 2021 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Rockwell Automation has released its new PowerFlex 6000T medium-voltage drive in a compact design. The drive accepts up to 13.8 kilovolts of primary voltage in a footprint that is 2,310 to 3,010 millimetres (7.58 to 9.87 feet) wide. The product’s compact design is targeted at new and retrofit industrial applications in IEC markets, especially those with space constraints.
The PowerFlex 6000T drive allows the direct connection of high-voltage feeds from the main distribution line without an additional step-down transformer or substation equipment.
The A-Frame PowerFlex 6000T drive also features adaptive control, an economizer mode and predictive maintenance. It is designed for managing motor control for heavy applications in industries such as oil and gas refining; mining, mineral and metal processing; power generation; and water and wastewater.
