Rockwell Automation Extends Power Range of its Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 755 AC Drives

Rockwell Automation Extends Power Range of its Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 755 AC Drives

In the first of several planned extensions, Rockwell Automation has expanded the power range of its Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 755 AC drives to 450 kW/700 hp, providing users with increased application flexibility. Featuring advanced diagnostics and a convenient roll-out design, the PowerFlex 755 AC drive is suited for motor control applications in a variety of heavy industries, including oil and gas, tire and rubber, refining, material handling, metals and mining.

A key feature of the PowerFlex 755 extended power range drive is its roll-out capability, which allows easy access to the drive for fast installation and maintenance. The drive's modular design helps simplify replacement of drive components, such as cooling fans, circuit boards and major subassemblies.

The PowerFlex 755 drive comes equipped with an embedded Ethernet port and five option slots that allow users to tailor the drive to best suit their application. Options include I/O, feedback, safety, additional communications and auxiliary control power input.

The PowerFlex 755 now supports Rockwell Automation Integrated Motion, allowing it to be configured and controlled using motion profiles and instruction sets in an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix controller with Rockwell Software RSLogix 5000 software. The ability to support variable frequency drives, motion drives, I/O, smart actuators and other EtherNet/IP-connected devices on a common network helps increase design flexibility, improve system performance and reduce engineering costs.

This power range extension expands the PowerFlex 755 AC drive offering from 0.75 kW (1 hp) up to 450kW and 700 hp at 400/480V ac input.
