Compact Drives

PowerFlex® Compact-class AC drives deliver a simple and cost-effective solution for standalone machine level control applications or simple system integration. Designed for ease of use, this general-purpose class of drives provides a compact package to optimize panel space and application versatility.
 PowerFlex 523
PowerFlex® 523 AC Drives are cost-effective and ideal for standalone machines. These drives provide an innovative, modular design that supports fast and easy installation and configuration. In addition, they offer USB programming, application-specific configuration, and flexible mounting options. PowerFlex 523 AC drives offer a power rating of 0.2...22 kW (0.25...30 Hp) with global voltage classes of 100...600V. They support a wide range of motor control, offer a compact footprint, and operate at temperatures as high as 70 °C (158 °F).

Features
  • Modular design features an innovative, removable control module that allows simultaneous wiring, installation and software configuration
  • Offers a wide range of motor control, including volts per hertz, sensorless vector control, and sensorless vector control with Economizer mode
  • Supports low-cost networking through an integrated RS485/DSI port
  • Lets you upload and download configuration files quickly and easily through a USB connection
  • Integral LCD human interface module (HIM) supports multiple languages and features descriptive QuickView™ scrolling text
  • Helps you reduce energy costs with Economizer mode and energy monitoring features
  • IP20 NEMA/UL Type Open, IP30 NEMA/UL Type 1 (with optional kit), DIN rail (frames A,B and C)
  • Helps simplify configuration through parameter groups in the AppView™ for applications like conveyors, mixers, pumps and fans
  • CustomView™ configuration helps speed machine commissioning with your own defined group of parameters
  • Drives operate in ambient temperature range of -20…50°C (-4…122°F), or as high as 70°C (158°F) with current derating when using a control module fan kit
  • Offers side-by-side mounting with 50mm (1.96 in) air-flow gap at the top and bottom of the drive
 PowerFlex 525 AC Drives
PowerFlex® 525 AC Drives feature an innovative, modular design to support fast and easy installation and configuration.

  • Lets you save custom configurations in the CustomView™ tool
 PowerFlex 527 AC Drives
Our PowerFlex® 527 AC Drives are the first AC drives designed to work exclusively with our Logix Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs). This allows the drive to leverage the capabilities of the controller and use Studio 5000 Logix Designer™ to help simplify machine development and use. This streamlined approach uses embedded instructions that are shared by PowerFlex 527 AC drives and Kinetix® servo drives, providing the same user experience for configuration, programming, and control of both types of drives.

Features
  • Offers built-in dual-port EtherNet/IP™ to support a variety of topologies as well as Device Level Ring functionality
  • Offers low-cost solution for machine parts, applications such as pumps, fans, in-feed and out-feed conveyors, that need simple speed control for induction motors
  • Provides the ability to transfer drive configuration files to a new machine
  • Reduces downtime and minimizes manual reconfiguration by using Logix PACs to detect a replaced drive and download all configuration settings over EtherNet/IP
  • Offers a new level of AC drive integration to help deliver a coordinated and synchronized machine
