PowerFlex 6000T Medium Voltage AC Drives

Our PowerFlex® 6000 Medium Voltage AC Drives allow for flexibility in a variety of applications. They are suited for new and retrofit, variable torque, and constant torque applications. Some of these applications include fans, pumps and compressors that require variable speed motor control from 2.3…11 kV. These drives are available in multiple configurations based on motor voltage and regional requirements.

What’s New?

Compact, All-in-One PowerFlex 6000T Drive for IEC Markets

Our new medium voltage drive units are about half the space – ideal for new and retrofit industrial applications in IEC markets. The PowerFlex® 6000T drive accepts up to 13.8 kV primary voltage in a footprint that is only 2310…3010 mm (7.58…9.87 feet) wide.

Plus, high-voltage feeds can be connected to the drive from the main distribution line without a step-down transformer or substation equipment, reducing costs.

The new A-Frame PowerFlex 6000T drive for IEC markets:

  • Offers faster commissioning with adaptive control
  • Saves energy with economizer mode
  • Is built on the TotalFORCE® technology platform
  • Reduces downtime with predictive maintenance
  • Delivers best-in-class footprint where space is a premium
PowerFlex 6000T drives manage motor control for heavy, industrial applications in oil and gas refining to mining, mineral, and metal processing.

Boost Productivity with PowerFlex Medium Voltage AC Drives

Simple. Connected. Easy to use.

PowerFlex 6000T features a common control architecture and TotalFORCE® technology.

Simplify your integration and operating experience by choosing PowerFlex 6000T MV drives. They share the same control hardware, firmware and network interface software used in our latest generation of PowerFlex 755T low voltage drives. Using a common control platform across your entire installed base of variable frequency drives lowers integration, operation and support costs. A common platform also reduces training requirements and spare parts inventory.
