Magnetek Introduces Addition to AC Line Regeneration Systems | Construction News
Magnetek, Inc. has announced the addition of the IMPULSE•D+ to their AC line regenerative systems.
The AC line regeneration units capture surplus regenerative energy from the motor that would normally be expended by resistors and return it to the AC power source, reducing total energy consumption and creating gains in energy efficiency. Additionally, the AC line regeneration units eliminate the wiring and maintenance generally associated with traditional dynamic braking resistors and provide an initial investment “payback” that can be seen in the first year of service.
The Impulse•D+ is an Active Front End (AFE) regeneration unit in a chassis drive layout designed to significantly reduce line harmonics below IEEE 519 requirements while regulating a consistent DC bus voltage. The unit’s 230V class is rated from 5-150HP while the 460V class is rated up to 450HP. It is suited for applications that include a high demand braking cycle, adjustable speed applications, and operations in less than optimal environments.
“Magnetek’s AC Line Regeneration units provide users with a trusted green energy option that offers proven savings, lower installation costs, and reduced maintenance time,” said Jason Wellnitz, controls product manager for Magnetek. “We’re pleased to offer this performance line of green energy regenerative drives that further reinforces our commitment to being the industry leader in energy saving solutions.”
