PowerFlex 6000T VFD Increases Output Frequency up to 120 Hz
As customers increase demand for greater output frequency range, we expanded the PowerFlex® 6000T AC medium voltage variable frequency drive range up to 120 Hz.
The new output frequency range meets the needs of customers operating high-speed applications, even in demanding industrial environments such as oil, gas, utility, mining and water/wastewater. This includes controlling high speed:
- Pumps and electro-submersible pumps
The PowerFlex 6000T VFD also offers the new RealSine™ solution
The option helps reduce input harmonics to significantly lower levels than what is typically seen in the industry. Available from 2.4…4.16 kV up to 215 A, without changing the number of drive transformer secondary windings, each secondary winding is specially phase-shifted to achieve 54 pulse or 72 pulse respectively, compared to traditional 18 pulse or 24 pulse designs for this voltage range.
This new design offers up to 30% improvement in total harmonic current distortion at the primary drive side. By reducing harmonic distortion, the VFD improves system efficiency, reduces energy cost and minimizes power distribution issues on the factory floor. Plus, it doesn’t require additional hardware or affect the drive footprint.
