Efficiency always has to do with a precise fit. Processes can only run safely and efficiently if the solution is tailored to the problem based on needs. This firstly requires a sound knowledge of the parameters, and secondly products that are able to offer a high level of efficiency. This is exactly where AMKmotion comes into play: at the SPS, the drive specialist will be presenting its extensive motor portfolio and central converter technology with the latest generation of controllers, and demonstrating how highly efficient systems can be set up based on intermediate energy storage and energy recovery, for example. The KES compact power feed transfers regenerative energy back to the grid by means of sinus commutation, thereby reducing electricity costs. In addition, the variable DC bus makes the system less dependent on the local power supply voltage.
Another building block towards achieving greater energy efficiency: hybrid drive concepts. Modularized mechanical engineering uses decentralized drives that do their job directly at the point of action. However, power-intensive processes usually require the installation of a central automation solution with a switch cabinet. By combining both solution approaches, users can benefit from the advantages offered by each one. This is particularly easy when the components are at home in both worlds.
