FlexMax Brushless DC Drives


Features Benefits
High reliability IGBT Power Bridge No unexplained, random power components failure
Built-in 4 quadrant braking up to size PX-100 Regen braking available at no extra cost
Standard remote mountable, multi-position Keypad Display Flexibility for convenient access and readability at any mounting height
PC interface set-up program standard Develop/file complete drive set-up; copy and modify
Powerful software configuration for speed, torque, or position operation Do all your applications with one drive type including multi-axis positioning or simple speed control
Electronic Line Shaft standard with no wiring between drives (using Fast-Link) Provides built-in high accuracy shaft-to-shaft tracking
Fast-Link, 4 Mb/sec data exchange between drives Makes critical drive data available to all drives at the same time
All power derived from the DC bus allowing the storage of power in the capacitor bank Drive requires no other power source for operation
Widest input voltage operating range in the business: 480 vac +10% to 230 vac -15% Trouble-free, trip-free operation in marginal power situations. Nominal voltages including: 208, 220, 230, 380, 400, 415, 460, 480 vac
Intelligent Power Loss Protection Standard feature provides ride through/coast through protection for most power loss events
Shaft position control allows true 0% speed regulation Steady-state speed will not vary from no-load to full-load

Why Buy Brushless?

  • Size: Smaller motor than any other available technology
  • Efficiency: The highest efficiency technology available for variable speed
  • Performance: The highest performance available from production motors and drives
  • Speed Accuracy: The highest accuracy and smoothness available in variable speed motors and drives
  • Cost: In most cases, it costs the same or less than other variable speed choices like DC drives or AC vector. And that's before you figure in the lower operating costs and the higher process throughput.

Using the PC based Windows setup tool WinPX (provided standard, Windows 98, Windows 2000, or Windows ME required), it's as easy as point and click. It takes a simple RS485 adapter to connect a PC, and then full file upload, download, and edit is available. Of course, setup can be done with the standard keypad as well, without having to use a PC.

If you buy a drive/motor package, the drive comes completely set up and ready to run. No programming or tuning necessary!
