Rockwell Automation's PowerFlex 7000 drive system
PowerFlex 7000 drive system with ArcShield technology is reported to be the first 50-kA, arc-resistant, medium-voltage drive featuring full regeneration capabilities. Combined with an integrated, arc-resistant Allen Bradley Centerline starter, PowerFlex 7000 with ArcShield provides a fully integrated, arc-resistant starter-and-drive system. ArcShield redirects hazardous energy and gases created in an arc-flash event away from personnel. The arc-resistant system is certified to meet the most stringent and comprehensive set of global arc-resistant standards. PowerFlex 7000 also meets Type 2B protection to provide full perimeter personnel protection, even when the low-voltage control door is open for maintenance. This drive system has been tested to meet North American and global arc-resistant standards, including IEEE C37.20.7, IEC 62271-200, IEC 62447-2, CSA C22.2 No. 22-11 and EEMAC G14-1.
