Rockwell Automation PowerFlex 7000 drive system
The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 7000 drive system with ArcShield technology provides a fully integrated, arc-resistant starter-and-drive system. The ArcShield technology redirects hazardous energy and gases created from an arc-flash event away from personnel. The system is certified to meet global arc-resistant standards, including IEEE C37.20.7, IEC 62271-200, IEC 62447-2, CSA C22.2 No. 22-11 and EEMAC G14-1. It provides a 50-kA arc rating and also meets Type 2B protection to provide full perimeter personnel protection, even when the low-voltage control door is open for maintenance purposes. The drive system uses regenerative drive technology, allowing users to slow down and stop motors quickly.
