PowerFlex 7000 Medium Voltage AC Drives

Our PowerFlex® 7000 Medium Voltage AC Drives are air-cooled or liquid-cooled drives that are available in a broad power range of 200…34000 Hp and supply voltages of 2400…6600V AC. These general-purpose, stand-alone drives control speed, torque, direction, starting, and stopping of standard asynchronous or synchronous AC motors.

Air-cooled 200…8000 Hp drives

  • 200…5500 Hp
  • Simple but rugged, minimum component count, optimum reliability

Liquid-cooled drives

  • 3000…8500 Hp
  • Drastically reduces control room air conditioning costs by removing 90% of the heat via a heat exchanger
  • Supports higher elevations and ambient temperatures than air-cooled drives

Extended Hp Drives

  • Up to 34,000 Hp
  • Modular system lets you add drives—up to four drive modules in one system—until the drive power matches the application requirements
  • Suitable for hot back-up applications with an option for control redundancy
  • Uses a hub module and ControlLogix™ processors to coordinate the modular drive system
