TB Woods has released its new X5 UltraFlex AC Drive for ac motor control. The new X5 features overlapping standards from the X4 including option boards and a range in horse power of 5 to 200 hp.
Additional X5 features include a built-in real-time clock for timer settings, a new easy-to-read display and a USB port for additional data connectivity. The USB port is intended for future expansion but is also used for collecting data from the ac drive and for saving and cloning a particular configuration across multiple drives via a memory stick.
Applications are suitable for any sort of heavy duty ac motor, including fans and grinders. Price range varies by horse power, voltage and distributor, but falls between $1,500 and $10,000.
