Bringing smarter drive capabilities to more applications

28 March 2022

Rockwell Automation is expanding the PowerFlex AC variable frequency drive portfolio to support a broader range of motor control applications to offer more flexibility, performance and intelligence in the next generation drive through TotalFORCE Technology.

The new PowerFlex 755TS drive is the first six-pulse drive to incorporate TotalFORCE technology. Previously only available in PowerFlex 755T drives with active front-end technology, TotalFORCE can now be used in a wider range of applications, including traditional fan, pump, and conveyor applications, and more advanced motor control processes that require high-performance features typically found in specialised drive solutions.

This addition brings a simplified and consistent user experience to motor control applications in three ways – it offers flexible, high-performance control, operational intelligence and ease of commissioning and optimisation.

Using a suite of features referred to as Adaptive Control, the drive monitors machine characteristics that can change over time and automatically compensates for changes. This helps users to quickly commission the drive and maintain it for the life of the drive without a tuning expert. It also helps reduce mechanical wear and improve uptime. 

The PowerFlex 755TS drive is available with an option for enhanced corrosive gas protection (XT) that helps improve uptime and extend the drive’s operating life in corrosive gas environments. The drive is also CIP Security capable. When implemented, this helps fortify a control system by providing data authenticity, integrity and confidentiality.
