Benshaw PowerPro™ Drive Series

Benshaw PowerPro™ Drive Series Multi-Purpose Vector Control Drives

The next generation in multi-purpose VFD technology. The Benshaw PowerPro™ High Performance Single AC Drive is a multi-purpose and high-performance current vector AC drive. It is mainly used for controlling and adjusting the speed and torque of three-phase AC asynchronous motors. Using high-performance vector control technology, the Benshaw PowerPro™ High Performance Single AC Drive features high torque output at a low speed, excellent dynamic characteristics and superior overload capability. It provides user-programmable features and PC monitoring software, and it supports multiple encoder types, delivering rich and powerful combined functions and stable performance. It can be used to drive textile, papermaking, drawing, machine tools, packaging, food, fans, water pumps and other automated production equipment.

Benshaw PowerPro™ Drive Series Fan and Pump Drives 

The newest Benshaw fan and pump VFD. The Benshaw PowerPro™ Fan and Pump Single AC Drive is a dedicated fan and pump drive for diverse variable torque applications such as fans, pumps, blowers and centrifugal compressors. a variable torque application is when the required torque is less at lower motor speeds but greater at higher speeds. A typical variable torque load is proportional to the square of the speed (e.g. fans). When the speed is reduced by ½, the required torque is reduced by ¼ — thus reducing the energy consumed by the load. The drive supports V/F operations with 110% and 150% overloads for 60 seconds and is used primarily for speed control of three-phase AC asynchronous motors. Using high-performance V/F control technology, the Benshaw PowerPro™ Fan and Pump AC Drive delivers excellent dynamic characteristics and superior overload capability. It provides user-programmable features and PC monitoring software, and it supports multiple field buses for communication.
