Rockwell Automation Doubles Input Voltage Capacity for Compact Drive

May 20, 2022
New medium voltage variable drive frequency delivers results in a smaller footprint.

The newest medium voltage variable drive frequency from Rockwell Automation delivers high performance in a smaller footprint.

The latest enhancement to the PowerFlex 6000T drive now accepts up to 13.8 kV primary voltage, nearly twice the input voltage, in a footprint that is only 2,310 to 3,010 mm (7.58 to 9.87 feet) wide. The drive can be applied to 3 to 4.16 kV applications with high voltage input built in. Plus, high-voltage feeds can be directly connected to the drive from the main distribution line without additional step-down transformer or substation equipment, reducing costs. 

Its compact A-Frame design is ideal for new and retrofit industrial applications in IEC markets where industrial space is at a premium, specifically for high-voltage primary installations. 

The PowerFlex 6000T drive features TotalFORCE technology. With real-time operational intelligence, this smart industrial control system:

  • Monitors system performance;
  • Delivers faster commissioning with adaptive control;
  • Saves energy with economizer mode; 
  • Reduces downtime and repair costs with predictive maintenance alerts; and
  • Makes it easy to start up and troubleshoot all drives on the common control platform.

PowerFlex 6000T drives are engineered for managing motor control for demanding applications in heavy industries, including oil and gas refining, mining, mineral and metal processing; power generation plants; and water and wastewater treatment facilities.
