PowerFlex 527

Bulletin 25C PowerFlex 527 AC Drives

Our PowerFlex® 527 AC Drives are the first AC drives designed to work exclusively with our Logix Programmable Automation Controller (PAC). This allows the drive to leverage the capabilities of the controller and use Studio 5000 Logix Designer™ to help simplify machine development and use. This streamlined approach uses embedded instructions that are shared by PowerFlex 527 AC drives and Kinetix® servo drives, providing the same user experience for configuration, programming, and control of both types of drives.

The estimated release date for this product is March 2015. Information is preliminary and subject to change.
