Perks of Operating Motors With Drives

drives and motors

MRO Electric and Supply has new and refurbished motors and drives available. We also offer repair pricing. For more information, please call 800-691-8511 or email sales@mroelectric.com.

Adjustable speed drives (ASDs), or variable-speed drives (VSDs) is used to describe equipment that assists to control the speed of machinery. Usually, they are using in mechanical equipment powered by motors.

The drives offer truthful electrical motor control enabling motor speeds to be increased, decreased and maintained.

Save On Energy:

Due to energy consumption, centrifugal fan and pump loads operated with versatile speed drives are reduced. The horsepower needed to operate the fan is cut by a much larger factor if the speed of the fan is cut in thirds or in half. As everyone knows, energy savings are what machine automation professionals yearn for.

Controlled torque limit:

By using an adjustable speed drive, machinery can be protected from any damage that may occur. The specific amount of torque applied by the motor to a load is able to be fully controlled.

Controlled Starting Current:

Usually when an ac motor is started “across the line,” it takes about as seven-to-eight times to start the motor and load.

 By utilizing an adjustable speed drive, the considerably reduced starting current expands the life of an ac motor. The benefits are less wear & tear on the motor which translates to extend motor life and less motor rewinds.
Governed Stopping:

Governed stopping backs up diminish product loss because of machine-driven wear and tear attributed to shocks to the process.

Reverse Operation:

The requirement for a reversing started is mitigated in regards to utilizing an adjustable speed drive. The reason being is the output phases to the motor can be morphed electronically. Removing the reversing starter terminates its upkeep expense while also minimizing panel space.

Decreased Power Demand on Start:

To begin an AC motor across the line, one is going to need much more power compared to beginning an adjustable speed drive. This is only the case at the start because the power to run the motor at load would be the same regardless of its variable speed.

Adjustable Operating Speed:

Process automation and implementing changes in a process is allowed due to deploying an adjustable speed drive. This also enables beginning at a shortened speed and allows remote acclimation of speed by process controllers.

 

Removal of mechanical drive components:

By using an adjustable speed drive, the likelihood of needing costly mechanical drive components like gearboxes can be mitigated. The AC drive is able to transport the high and/or low speed required by the load with a consistent speed between the motor and load because it’s able to function with an infinite variable speed.

FANUC A06B-6087-H130: Beyond the User Manual

The FANUC A06B-6087-H130 is a 200V Power Supply Module (PSM-30).

Multiple servo amplifier modules and spindle amplifier modules can be connected to a single power supply provided the output capacity conditions are satisfied. Below lies the basic configuration when using the A06B-6087-H130:

A06B-6087-H130 Configuration
A06B-6087-H130 Configuration

Always install the circuit breakers, magnetic contactor, and AC reactor on your A06B-6087-H130. Be sure to use the correct breakers as specified in the FANUC manual. To protect the module from lightning surge voltages, install a lightning surge protector across each pair of power lines and across each power line and the grounding line at the power inlet of the magnetics cabinet. Always connect the control power supply cable to the CX1A. If it is connected to the CX1B, fuses inside the module could blow.  If you are using two power supply modules, the magnetic contactors and AC reactors cannot be shared – they each have ratings that matches each power supply module. However, the lightning surge protector can be shared. Make the wires used as short as possible if you do this.

Notes on Cleaning the A06B-6087-H130 Fan and Heat Sink:

  1. A dirty heat sink or fan results in reduced semiconductor cooling efficiency, which degrades reliability. Periodic cleaning is necessary.
  2. using the compressed air for cleaning scatters the dust. A deposit of conductive dust on the amplifier for peripheral equipment will result in failure.
  3. To clean the heat sink, do so only after turning the power off and ensuring that the heat sink has cooled to room temperature. The heat sink becomes extremely hot, such that touching it during operation or immediately after power-off is likely to cause a burn. Be extremely careful when touching the heat sink.
