Master-slave drive applications

Simple drive applications can be solved by many drive vendors. The difference in drive performance and quality becomes more apparent in difficult and demanding applications.   An example of a more difficult application is one that uses a Master-follower (or “Master-slave”) drive topology. Master-slave drive applications can be seen on many machines including winder/unwinders, printing presses, and gantry cranes, to name a few. This post gives an overview of some of these applications and what drive technology to look for in order to meet the tough demands.     History How do I synchronize motor speeds? It’s a common question....

KEB Liquid cooled VFDs – A good pairing for water cooled motors

Liquid cooled VFDs are just one example of the heatsink technology offered by KEB America. In this post, we will cover the advantages and features of a liquid cooled inverter, and some of the appropriate applications.       Heat is the Enemy In order for power electronic components to function properly and perform over a usable lifetime, the heat produced during normal operation must be dissipated. The operational lifetime of these components is directly linked to their operating temperature. In general, as the operating temperature of power electronic components increases, the lifetime is decreased.   Variable frequency drives (VFDs)...

Using one VFD to control multiple motors

Some applications (fans, pumps, etc.) might benefit from running multiple induction motors at the same time from one VFD. This post provides an overview of running multiple motors from a central VFD.   Advantages of using one VFD to control multiple motors   Smaller cabinet size One large drive will have a smaller footprint than multiple smaller VFDs. Additionally, that one large drive requires only one branch circuit protection (e.g. fuses), incoming wiring, and braking resistor. The net result is a smaller electrical enclosure.       Cost reduction There will be some economy savings in using one large drive...

KEB America announces ISO 9001:2015 certification

For immediate release   SHAKOPEE, MN – KEB America announces the ISO 9001:2015 certification of their production facility, located in Shakopee, Minnesota. The certification, which came into effect January 2018, was issued after the facility met the criteria set by The International Organization for Standards and passed an audit, displaying zero non-conformities to the standard. KEB America had previously been certified under 9001:2008.     The standard ISO 9001:2015 applies to a facility’s quality management and quality assurance systems. By meeting the standards set forth by ISO, KEB America reaffirms its commitment to providing components that meet rigorous standards of...

Infrastructure Week and KEB America

Each year, Infrastructure Week seeks to highlight the importance of the nation’s infrastructure in our daily lives. Modern technology to support and maintain our roads, airports, rails, bridges, water treatment, energy production, and all the rest is a huge industry. KEB America is a part of this industry and we understand the importance of getting people through their day with safety, speed, and efficiency. Our experienced designers and engineers are able to tackle special projects from a huge range of industries related to infrastructure. Power transmission, heat and power generation, recycling, material handling, pumps, sorting and picking, and construction are...

VFDs for Direct Drive High Torque Servo Motors

High Torque Servo Motors are a useful tool for designers of industrial machinery.  KEB has a lot of experience controlling AC Torque motors and this post gives an overview of the motor technology and some considerations when looking at direct drives.     What is a High Torque Servo Motor? A torque motor is nothing more than an AC Servo Motor that is designed with a high pole count.  Most standard AC Servo motors will use a 6-pole or 8-pole design and will likely operate nominally at 2,000-6,000 rpm.  Many applications will require some sort of speed reduction (e.g. planetary...
