The new PowerFlex 6000T medium-voltage drive from Rockwell Automation delivers industry-leading performance in about half the space. The drive accepts up to 13.8 kV primary voltage in a best-in-class footprint that is only 2,310 to 3,010 mm (7.58 to 9.87 feet) wide. This compact design makes the drive ideal for new and retrofit industrial applications in IEC markets, especially those where space is a premium.

The PowerFlex 6000T drive can provide cost savings by allowing the direct connection of high-voltage feeds from the main distribution line without any additional step-down transformer or substation equipment. The new A-Frame PowerFlex 6000T drive also offers:

  •    –   Faster commissioning with adaptive control
  •    –   Energy savings with an economizer mode
  •    –   Reduced downtime with predictive maintenance

“Customers will immediately boost their productivity when they migrate to PowerFlex 6000T drives,” said Brad Bugiardini, PowerFlex 6000T product manager, Rockwell Automation. “The common control platform in the PowerFlex 6000T, from 0 to 680 amps, makes it easier to start up and troubleshoot all drives. Plus, TotalFORCE technology combines high-performance motor control, advanced self-monitoring capabilities, and a digital platform to deliver faster, more precise and responsive drives.”

The new PowerFlex 6000T drive is designed for managing motor control for heavy applications in industries such as:

  •    –   Oil and gas refining
  •    –   Mining, mineral and metal processing
  •    –   Power generation
  •    –   Water and wastewater

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
