Press release date: January 21, 2013

Coral Springs, FL- KB Electronics, Inc. of Coral Springs, FL, a manufacturer of AC drives and DC drives from fractional through 5 horsepower, introduces a new Hybrid Drive™ to their current product line. KB is the first manufacturer of variable frequency drives to apply the term Hybrid Drive to a segment of their AC drive line. A hybrid, by definition, is the merging of two technologies. These drives combine the digital technology of the microprocessor with an easy to use analog interface. Simple trimpot adjustments and selectable jumpers are used in lieu of complicated programming.

The new KBWA Series drives operate on either 115 or 230 VAC. The KBWA-23D is housed in a vented NEMA 1 / IP 20 enclosure and is rated through ½ HP. Model KBWA-22D is housed in a non-vented NEMA 1 / IP 50 enclosure and is rated through ¼ HP.

“We are pleased to continually deliver quality AC drives to our customers." reports Alan Bueller, vice president sales, KB. “This new KBWA drive is a great addition to our growing AC drive product line. We plan to expand our current offering of AC and DC drives, as the market demands.”

The proprietary current limit software provides overload protection, prevents motor burnout and eliminates nuisance tripping. It is UL approved as an electronic overload protector for motors. The KBWA drive offers energy savings, using only the power the application requires. Replacing constant speed with variable speed will significantly reduce energy costs. GFCI software, with factory programming, allows the equipment to operate with Ground Fault Circuit Interruption circuit breakers or outlets.
