How a 3 Phase AC Induction Motor Works

This article and video will focus on the basics of a 3 phase AC induction motor, one of today’s most common types of industrial electric motors. This overview will explain what 3 phase power is, how Faraday’s law works, understanding the main components of an induction motor, and the effect of the number of stator poles on the rated speed and torque of a motor. You can also watch the video below for an overview of 3 phase AC induction motors. What is 3 Phase Power? The first concept we need to understand about a 3 phase induction motor is...

KEB Gen 6: The Multi-Language VFD

What can KEB offer that one of the big automation suppliers cannot (or will not)?  This is a reasonable and fair question.  This posts talks a bit about one of the differences – that KEB drives are communication agnostic and can interface with nearly every major PLC platform.  This flexibility is important for global machine builders and ultimately reduces development time and support costs. Different Communication Protocols – A new tower of Babel Machine builders are increasingly playing in a global sandbox.  Their machines are going to every corner of the globe.  Shipping machines internationally introduces new challenges like how...

Happy 40th Birthday to KEB America!

On February 28, 1979 KEB was established in Minneapolis MN as a joint venture with Tolomatic. With their small downtown office, the German company was ready to expand into the North American market with its unique line of Combibox clutch-brake units. Since then we’ve grown as a company and brought many advancements to automation and control in North America. Here are some of the milestones we hit on our journey from Tolomatic/KEB Inc. to KEBCO Inc., and finally KEB America, Inc. 1979 – KEB enters the North American market in a joint venture. 1982 – KEBCO is officially incorporated in...

DC Injection Braking

Some industrial automation machines can encounter induction motors driving high inertia loads running at high operational speeds. Slowing and stopping these large loads can prove difficult at times. Once power is removed from the induction motor, the motor may slowly coast until a standstill is reached. For example, a customer has a VFD driving a circular grinding wheel. The wheel has a high inertia and turns at high speeds, such that when the wheel is turned off, it takes a few minutes before the wheel comes to a stopped position. Due to safety concerns and production downtime, the customer would...
