Eaton introduces PowerXL DG1 variable speed drive range
02 January 2015
Eaton's new PowerXL DG1 variable speed drive series is suitable for demanding industrial and building automation applications in the power range from 0.55 to 160 kW.
The new drives feature optimised energy algorithm, robust design, extreme short-circuit current capability with extensive and integrated functionality. All models come with standard interfaces for Ethernet IP, Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU as well as BACnet MS/TP.
Plug-in cards can also be used for connecting to Profibus DP, CANopen, DeviceNet, ProfiNet and LonWorks as well as Eaton's SmartWire-DT lean panel wiring and communication system. Additionally, the devices provide several digital and analogue inputs and outputs as well as three relays.
The drive software installed on all DG1 drives offers features such as active power consumption optimisation, dynamic power management in the event of feedback, a quick-start wizard, different standard application function blocks (multi-pump system, fan control, multi-PID, multi-purpose use), safety functions, as well as Safe Torque Off (STO) and real-time clock.
The DG1 offers an overload withstand capability of 110 percent for variable torque and 150 percent for constant torque. Thanks to an integrated dc link choke, the variable speed drive only has a very small harmonic component, so that the user does not require additional external components. EMC filters (C2) are likewise standard for all devices.
The variable speed drive series comes in six sizes with protection class IP21 for all housings. For harsher environmental conditions or remote operation, the housing can be retrofitted to IP54 with a conversion kit.
