Video: Medium-voltage drive delivers big performance in a compact design

02 September 2021

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 mm to 3,010 mm (7.58 ft to 9.87 ft) 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 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 drive is designed for managing motor control for heavy applications in industries such as oil and gas refining, mining and metal processing, power generation and water and wastewater.
