Company and Product News

Rockwell Automation introduced its new PowerFlex 6000T medium-voltage drive, which is designed to deliver high performance in about half the space. The drive accepts up to 13.8 kV primary voltage in a footprint that has been reduced to 2,310 to 3,010 mm (7.58 to 9.87 feet) wide. The compact design of the drive is well suited for new and retrofit industrial applications in IEC markets, especially those where space is a premium.

The PowerFlex 6000T drive can provide additional cost savings by allowing the direct connection of high-voltage feeds from the main distribution line without any additional step-down transformer or substation equipment. The new A-Frame PowerFlex 6000T drive also offers:

  • Adaptive control for faster commissioning
  • An economizer mode for energy savings
  • Predictive maintenance capabilities for reduced unscheduled downtime

The new PowerFlex 6000T drive is designed for managing motor control for heavy applications in industries such as:

  • Oil and gas refining
  • Mining, mineral and metal processing
  • Power generation
  • Water and wastewater
