So called servo drives are a type of rotating machine that can be used either as motor or as generator with variable torque and speed over a wide range.
So far, the control unit and resistor was placed externally in a cupboard and connected with special shielded cables – acceptable for highly complicated CNC machines but unfortunately expensive and not ideal for harsh outdoor environments.
The fully integrated drive DRI-1.5 has a control unit and brake resistor directly integrated inside the drive housing. It can run either fully independently from external commands or via CAN-bus signals.
The DRI-1.5 is the new star of local energy generation. Small wind and water turbines as well as stirling machines benefit upmost from this new generation of drive.
When using the DRI-1.5 the application typical improves their efficiency on full and partial loading, the safety increases by new run modi.
Also the reliability and lifetime benefit from the usage of the DRI-1.5.
The high efficieny drive DRI-1.5 can reduce the energy consumption of e.g. ventilators and air condition units, especially under partial load conditions. Compared to standard motors, the potential savings can be up to 30% when used in combination with time control.
Via CAN bus connection a remote control can be established in a very simple way e.g. to a building automation system.
The DRI-1.5 integrated chip can be programmed for time segments power & speed e.g. night or weekend power decrease. The time stamp comes from an optional clock.
The DRI-1.5 comes with full water and dirt protection. Farm, military, underwater applications which benefit from speed & torque control (e.g. soft start, profile run) are the domain of the Anerdgy drive.
The DRI-1.5 can run down to -30° Celsius without problems and in cold start conditions. If even lower temperature ranges are required the drive can heat itself up before starting.
The integrated shaft position and gyroscopic sensors allow high precision and detection of the drive position. The movement & vibration control can be also used as an online status check.
The easiest daisy chain system on the market allows also multidrive control and dependency sequences. With a simple central industrial PC you can control and monitor all. No extra control cabinets are required.
A standard electrical wire & CAN cable - not more is required to run the DRI-1.5. The full enclosure ensures that there is no spark & dust risk. This supports the usage in explosive or dangerous environments.
In sensitive environments such as households or laboratories low electro magnetic emissions (EMC) are required.
The DRI-1.5 fulfills the both the household and industrial standards easily and can withstand up to 4000 Volt surges.
If the DRI-1.5 is connected to a 400 Volt DC bus, it can achieve the highest efficiency and run either as a generator or motor - also called 4 quadrant drive. If connected to 220 Volt AC, the drive can run as a motor with slightly lower efficiency.
The drive is optimal for windturbines, waterturbines, cogen units for example or for driving machines such as ventilators and industrial machines.
The full internal programming option allows a perfect adaption and running for various characteristic curves and process parameters.
The DRI-1.5 can be connected directly to a certified PV inverter – Hence, the generated energy is injected to the electricity grid (single-phase or three-phase).
By bringing together these features into one device, the installation is significantly simplified:
