The AFE200 offers a number of advantages:

  • “Clean Power” thanks to the unit power factor and reduced harmonic distortion (<5%)
  • Enhanced system dynamics during drive and regeneration
  • Considerable energy savings during regeneration transients
  • Improved stability of the DC Bus circuit under load changes
  • Significant cost-effectiveness with the single power supply system
  • Elimination of uneconomical conventional braking systems and braking resistors

The AFE200 range has power ratings of 22kW to 1.65MW for three-phase power supplies of 400VAC to 690VAC.
Ease of use and intuitive programming make it possible for users of any level to exploit the high-level performance of Active Front End technology for a broad range of applications where there is a need for real energy saving.
