Elevator Ride Quality Adjustment with a VFD

Many people take ride quality for granted when they ride in an elevator. A smooth and responsive ride requires precise adjustment from all system components such as the controller, variable frequency drive, and brakes. The variable frequency drive or VFD, can be a powerful adjustment tool for mechanics when properly applied. This article will specifically focus on software functions available in an elevator VFD for two main elevator adjustments; rollback and increased speed control response. Elevator Car Rollback Rollback can occur for a brief moment at the beginning of the ride when the brake lifts, a speed command has not...

VFD Technology for Running High Speed Gearless Turbo Blowers

What are the most important factors when considering VFD Technology for Running High Speed Gearless Turbo Blowers? Here at KEB, we like difficult applications because this is where we excel and where our technology and application engineering differentiate us from our competitors.  These applications could require multiple axes of coordinated motion control or be located in challenging environmental conditions.  Operating a high speed motor/generator is one example of a difficult drive application. One high speed application that KEB has extensive experience in is running gearless turbo blowers.  This post gives an overview of KEB’s VFD offering and reasons why KEB...

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...
