Unique High Power AC Drive With Modular Architecture Saves Floor Space

Charlotte, NC, October 1, 2007 - Parker Hannifin SSD Drives Division has introduced a brand new approach to drive construction - the AC890PX family of modular AC drives. Serving the global market within a single power frame, the AC890PX is available in ratings through 600HP, (400KW) and voltage ranges from 380VAC to 690VAC. A unique drive concept features pluggable power modules for quick replacement, virtually eliminating downtime.

Building-Block modules for easy installation and service
Each easy-to-handle, plug-in power module slides into the AC890PX power frame, making installation and servicing a snap. Parker SSD AC890PX modules weigh less than 50 pounds and can be shipped around the globe and installed in minutes by local technicians.

AC890PX saves Space, Time, and Components
Connect the motor, connect the power, and you're ready to run! Self-contained with the smallest footprint in the industry, this new modular enclosure measuring 2000x500x620mm (79x20x24in) includes many extras at no additional cost. We provide the disconnect switch, fuses, harmonic-reducing input line reactor, and dynamic braking with resistor, all pre-wired into the power frame, eliminating the need for auxiliary components and minimizing installation time and cost.

Precise Control of AC Induction and Servo Motors
Parker SSD AC890PX extends the power range of the existing AC890 family of high performance AC drives, and can run induction motors, torque motors and permanent magnet servo motors, in control modes including simple Volts/Hz, open-loop flux vector, and precision closed loop vector with positioning.

The Power to Connect
The AC890PX communicates with all popular industrial protocols, including Ethernet, ProfiBus, ControlNet, DeviceNet, CanOpen and Firewire, with available option cards. With AC890PX drive modularity, the business of running your factory improves. Building blocks working together, lowering costs and providing unmatched system performance.

Parker SSD Drives provides a full range of highly innovative products, including AC, DC, and servo drives in the range of fractional HP to 2000 HP, based on the sound principals of ease of use, global standards, and above all, reliability.
