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...

Auxiliary Inverters for Electric Municipal Vehicles

The electrification of city transit and school buses continues to grow rapidly! This creates a lot of positive press for municipalities, providing further support for electric vehicle applications.  This success in EV advancement is paving the way for the next round of viable municipal vehicle applications, particularly waste trucks and street sweepers.  Even if the powertrain remains a combustion engine, there is the opportunity to electrify the auxiliary pumps, compressors, and condensers with electric motors and inverters as part of a hybrid design. Street Sweepers and Waste trucks Waste and recycling trucks are a good candidate as electric municipal vehicles...

EMC Considerations for Auxiliary Inverters in Electric Vehicles Applications

Once upon a time, just about everything in a vehicle was mechanical, most notably the combustion engine which provided power to other subsystems such as pumps for power steering and compressors for air conditioning.  But as technology progressed and fuel consumption and emission standards became more stringent, electric components started to take over.  A prime example of this has been the use of computer-controlled fuel injection systems replacing carburetors.  The Future is Electric Fast forward to the present where all-electric vehicles are rapidly on the rise with batteries replacing fuel systems, inverter-driven electric motors replacing the engine and auxiliaries such...

Automation for Antenna Control Systems

An interesting application that uses nearly all KEB Automation products is an Antenna control system.   KEB is best suited for difficult and demanding applications and this one is no different.  First, the antenna application demands high motion control performance. Antennas are used to track satellites and require precise and dynamic positioning capability. This puts demands on both the control and mechanical system.  The mechanical system must provide low backlash and be able to withstand high peak forces in the case of wind gusts. The second reason this is a difficult application is because of the extreme environments the Antennas are...

Internal positioning capabilities of KEB VFDs

This is an introduction and overview of KEB’s Internal Positioning Module™ (IPM) that is built-in to all KEB’s closed loop VFDs and servo drives. This is part of our ongoing series on motion control basics. Historically, motion control applications required a central controller to calculate the movement profile and then command it from the controller to the drive or “amplifier”. For complex coordinated motion, this is the most effective way to design a control system. But in the case of single-axis or non-coordinated positioning applications like a rotary wheel or crane – there is a better option. …in the case...
