Drive solutions for reducing energy costs, increase uptime

Product Exclusive: The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 755T drives from Rockwell Automation are designed to provide harmonic mitigation, regeneration and common-bus system configurations, are compliant to the IEEE 519 specification, and help users reduce energy costs and increase machine uptime.


The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 755T drives from Rockwell Automation are designed to provide harmonic mitigation, regeneration and common-bus system configurations, are compliant to the IEEE 519 specification, and help users reduce energy costs and increase mRockwell Automation has introduced new drive solutions that will help users reduce energy costs and increase machine uptime for assets running in high-demand applications. The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 755T drives are designed to provide harmonic mitigation, regeneration, and common-bus system configurations and are compliant to the IEEE 519 specification.

The latest PowerFlex drive offering marks the introduction of TotalForce technology from Rockwell Automation. This new drive technology delivers superior motor control through precise, adaptive control of velocity, torque, and position for electric motors.

The three new drive solutions have advanced, predictive diagnostics to estimate and provide notification of the remaining life span of drive components. Users can actively monitor parameters of the drive and motor to allow for preventive action if necessary.

  • The PowerFlex 755TL drive uses active, front-end technology and an internal harmonic filter to reduce harmonic distortion. The drive is available from 250 to 1,800 Hp (160 to 1250 kW).
  • Delivering power from 250 to 3,000 Hp (130 to 2,300 kW), the PowerFlex 755TR drive includes both regenerative and harmonic mitigation solutions. The drive helps reduce energy consumption and costs by delivering energy back to the incoming supply, resulting in a more energy-efficient solution.
  • The PowerFlex 755TM drive system allows users to build the system that best fits their needs for regeneration and coordination of multiple motors in common-bus configurations. To optimize their system requirements and meet power-consumption needs, users can select from a series of predesigned modules with a power range from 250 to 3,000 Hp (130 to 2,300 kW).
