KEB America Building Expansion

SHAKOPEE, Minn, August 29 – We announced the start of a major KEB America building expansion of our US headquarters near Minneapolis, Minnesota. The expansion will increase machining capacity and storage space to meet the strong and growing demand of its automation products in North America. Building updates will be made on this article below. “We are excited to announce the new addition which solidifies our strong commitment to North American customers from coast to coast and to our local community,” said Andy Delius, President, KEB America. “The new space will enable us to meet the strong customer demand more...

Ground Fault Nuisance Tripping in VFD Applications

Overview of a VFD Ground Fault Ground faults are characterized by the accidental connection of a live circuit to a grounded conductor. If the ground connection is solid enough there is a potential for extremely high currents flowing through the live circuits to ground.  The current may be high enough to trip any upstream breakers or blow fuses. Tripping breakers or blowing fuses should render the machinery where the ground connection was made safe to personnel. Unfortunately for many ground faults the accidental connection to ground has a high enough electrical resistance that excessive currents do not flow.  The lower...

The year in review | 2019 at KEB America

This month we entered into the year 2020! We’re excited for the new year and all it will bring. New technology, great customer service and application engineering support for motion control and automation systems will continue to be our focus in 2020 as it has for over 40 years. But before we jump into that, let’s take a look at what we accomplished in 2019. We had some compelling blog posts, educational videos, new product releases, and a community outreach project to engage our home city of Shakopee, MN. Original Content – News and Information Through our blog, YouTube channel,...

How to Upload and Download KEB Drive Parameters

One of the more useful features of our drives is the ability to upload and download KEB drive parameters. You can do this using our COMBIVIS 6 automation software. KEB VFDs offer exceptional motor control with a vast amount of parameter options to fine-tune your application to run as smooth and efficient as possible. You can easily save parameter lists to a computer as a backup file or use a previously saved file to program a new or existing drive. The upload and download procedures embeded in this blog are also available in our COMBIVIS 6 Tutorials playlist on our...

How a PI Controller in a VFD Speed Control works

Across KEB’s line of inverters, a PI controller is used whenever closed loop control is utilized.  This blog post and the accompanying YouTube video describe how this PI controller is used in a VFD to provide precise speed and torque control of the motor. What is the PI Algorithm? The PI, or Proportional and Integral, controller is a commonly used method in control systems to correct for error between the commanded set point and the actual value based on some type of feedback. In the case of KEB drives, the PI controller is implemented in the speed control portion of...

Surge Protection for DC Switching with an MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor)

Adding surge protection for DC switching into your application will safeguard vulnerable circuit components like an electromagnetic brake and clutch rectifiers from transient voltage. Without this protection you run the risk of wearing out the contacts of your rectifier prematurely. One method to protect from these surges is to install an MOV. What is an MOV? A Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV) is a voltage dependent resistor. In other words, it’s an electrical component whose resistance varies with voltage. They are used to protect vulnerable circuit components from short surges of electrical energy What happens when power is turned off to...
