New 120 kW module for B&R ACOPOSmulti servo drives

July 1, 2010 – With the new 120 kW module for ACOPOSmulti servo drives B&R Industrial Automation provides it’s customers not only with inverters but also power supply modules with maximum rated current values up to 165 A available to them.

The modules are offered for cold plate and feed-through mounting and also have two open slots that allow the use of various ACOPOSmulti plug-in cards.

Thanks to integrated PFC (Power Factor Correction), start-up current values are reduced by up to 60%, which minimizes wire cross sections and the size of the fuses or circuit breakers required. The stabilized DC bus allows motors to be operated with identical characteristics all over the world and eliminates the need for upstream transformers. The ability to implement power regeneration results in energy savings of up to 50% because brake energy is actively fed back to the mains instead of being converted to heat. This makes the ACOPOSmulti drive system one of the most efficient on the market.

With these advantages, the 120 kW devices fit seamlessly into the modular line of ACOPOSmulti series products and offer machine manufacturers many possibilities for optimizing their machine design.

Highlights:

  • Wide input voltage range
  • Capable of regeneration
  • Integrated connection for temperature sensors
  • 2 slots for ACOPOSmulti plug-in modules
