Save up to 50% of energy using a regenerative drive

    According to Omron Automation, it makes good business sense to use regenerative drive technologies on motor loads to reduce a machine’s energy consumption. Studies show that Omron’s regenerative drive solutions can reduce electrical energy consumption by up to 50%, according to the application.   Omron tunes its regenerative drive units specifically to match […]

Cut energy costs with regenerative variable speed drive solutions

  In addition to providing variable the speed of motors, inverter drives can also be used to stop them quickly by applying a braking torque to the motor.  The energy released during this process is normally absorbed by a braking circuit and dissipated through braking resistors in the form of heat   However, regenerative variable […]

ABB regenerative drives give big payback on downhill conveyors.

    ABB regenerative drives give big payback on downhill conveyors.   Using ABB regenerative AC drives fed 520,000 kW of power back into the mains and significantly reduced maintenance costs by improved control on two limestone conveyors used in cement making.   Continuous raw material flow is important in cement making and when processing […]
