KEB F5 Startup in 10 Easy Steps

This is how to quickly and effectively start-up an asynchronous induction motor using our F5 drive. Utilizing KEB’s programming software COMBIVIS 6, we can break down the programming process into 10 simple steps. Specifically, we will be highlighting a KEB F5 startup in closed-loop control with encoder feedback.  The general process will be similar for other motors and control types. What do I need to Get Started? Closed-loop control with encoder feedback is a VFD control method that utilizes measured speed feedback through an encoder device. In general, there are five main components that will be required for a KEB F5...

5 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Drive Controller for Highly Automated Machines

When choosing a drive controller for highly automated, safety-oriented, process plant and machines, a number of factors should be considered, including functional safety, real time communications, ease of integration, feedback control and stability of the operating environment. Minimizing production downtime is critical, as well as ensuring the safety and energy efficiency of machines and processes. In applications such as material handling, textiles, woodworking, plastics, food and beverage processing, packaging, robotics and machine tools, processes are typically high speed with production plant, equipment and machines operating at high speeds, high reliability and in a stable operating environment. Minimizing production downtime is...

Mastering the Challenges of using VFDs at High Altitudes

“My electrical enclosure and VFD will be installed at a high elevation – what precautions do I need to take?”  This is a question that customers ask from time to time.  Any VFD-operated equipment such as pumps, HVAC fans, chairlifts, and satellites that is installed in mountainous areas is affected by this. There are two main challenges when operating VFDs at high altitudes – The reduced cooling capacity and creepage and clearance distances.  This post discusses the main considerations and options when using drives at high altitudes. Challenge 1 – Thinner air and reduced cooling capability Being from Minnesota, I...

Automation Components for Robotic Systems

Simplifying Communication Robots are becoming part of our everyday lives, especially in the industrial space.  Leading automation component manufacturers are focused on developing interfaces that harmonize with current and future robotics technologies. At KEB, we’ve developed automation components for robotic systems with communication drivers that allow KEB C6 control products to easily communicate with robots and other intelligent industrial machines. This is a living list and new protocols are added as they are developed.  These libraries are all included with KEB’s programming software. Furthermore, KEB has collaborated with KUKA Robotics using their function module library “mxAutomation”.  This library is based...

Optimize your process with Cold Plate (Flat Back) Heatsink VFDs

Selecting the right technology for your application can improve component functionality and equipment performance. The different drive technologies featured in KEB drive products are designed to provide the best solution for the application. Our standard fan-cooled heatsinks are suitable for most applications. For Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) that are used on machines with cooling pumps, the KEB Liquid Cooled VFDs are the most common option.  If environmental conditions are a concern, a push-through heatsink with oversized cooling fins might be a better option since forced air fans can become clogged with fibers (e.g. textile). Another option is the KEB cold...

UPS Function: Reduced Input Voltage for VFDs

Another interesting function built into KEB drives such as the F5, is our UPS Function.  In short, the UPS Function allows the VFD to operate with a lower input voltage than would typically be used in normal operation.  This function is often used in emergency modes where a machine designer wants to operate the VFD with a battery or Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS). This post describes the basics of KEB’s UPS Drive Function and where it might be used. Drive Protection Parameters All commercial drives are going to have some sort of protection parameters that are used to protect the...
