The inverter is the last of the main elements making up the AC drive. The inverter processes represent the final stage in terms of generating the output voltage and frequency. When the motor is connected directly to the mains, the ideal operating conditions apply at the rated operating point.

The AC drive guarantees good operating conditions throughout the whole speed range by adapting the output voltage to the load conditions. It is thus possible to maintain the magnetization of the motor at the optimal value.

 

The Combivert S6 drive is a modern, compact and flexible servo amplifier that can be used across a wide range of applications.  The drive controller provides optimum performance in torque, speed, and position control. The S6 has the ability to control AC induction motors, AC PM motors, and lastly linear motors. In this article, we will be focusing on linear motors and how they work, as well as the simplicity of controlling them with the Combivert S6.

 

 

 

COVID-19 is impacting society in a myriad of ways. Although restaurants, clinics, grocery stores and entertainment venues are experiencing the most obvious changes, the manufacturing industry is also being affected, including when it comes to functional safety. Let's take a look at the ways in which the pandemic may create new challenges for manufacturing employees.

 

 

 

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) can be an excellent option for traceability, particularly when there's a need to write information as well as read it. Common RFID applications include detecting passing pallets of product in a warehouse and tracking the location of vehicles in an automotive plant.

 

 

 

More frequent process changes. New technology. Larger datasets. Greater traceability and compliance requirements. Tighter budgets. Sound familiar? From oil refineries to food and beverage plants, process engineers are being asked to manage increasingly complex systems – and to do more with less. The good news is the latest distributed control system (DCS) platforms have kept pace with technological developments.

 

 

 

The CiA 402 application profile is used to standardize the control of VFDs and servo drives.  A previous post provided an introduction to the profile.  This post will go into more detail on how the profile functions and how it can be implemented.

 

 

 

For flexible packaging pioneer Liquibox, sustainability has always been a priotiry. The company has more than 50 years of experience supplying pouches and bag-in-box solutions to food and beverage companies, and its liquid packaging withstands hard shipping conditions, dispenses perfectly into any machine. and maintains a small environmental footprint.

 

 

 

Gartner predicts that by 2022, or perhaps sooner, more than two-thirds of companies that have implemented IoT projects will have launched at least one digital twin in production.

There are many different variable frequency drive (VFD) brands available today, each one with a different way of controlling a motor. KEB’s focus up through our generation 5 VFDs was almost limitless functionality within the drive. We achieved this with our internal positioning module and 8 selectable sets.
