For the benefit of industrial operators in the international IEC markets, Rockwell Automation has added two more PowerFlex® variable frequency drives (VFDs) to the CENTERLINE® 2500 low-voltage motor control centers (MCCs). This will help them increase their output, safety, and energy efficiency.

The PowerFlex 755TL and 755TR drives with TotalFORCE® technology can be integrated into CENTERLINE MCCs. The VFDs deliver real-time operating system performance data that can help operators boost their factory output, uptime and energy savings.

The PowerFlex 755TL drive

 provides built-in harmonic mitigation and power-factor correction through active front-end technology. By reducing the adverse effects of harmonic distortion, the VFD improves motor efficiency, reduces energy costs and minimizes power-distribution issues on the factory floor.

The PowerFlex 755TR drives

 can help reduce energy consumption by using built-in regeneration to deliver energy back to the incoming power supply. This is more energy efficient than using resistive or mechanical braking. Plus, it eliminates the need for braking resistors and cooling equipment, which can reduce wiring, labor, installation, and maintenance costs.

By integrating PowerFlex 755TL or 755TR drives with a CENTERLINE 2500 MCC, operators also receive real-time predictive diagnostics and maintenance alerts that can reduce unplanned downtime. Plus, plant operations get certified safety benefits from ArcShield™ technology that provides arc-fault containment per IEC TR 61641:2014.

With CENTERLINE MCC manufacturing facilities on three continents, factory-ready low-voltage motor control and power-management system technology are available in IEC markets around the world.
