With electric drives, energy costs often account for almost 90 percent of the total life cycle costs. Regenerative systems help to reduce the total cost of ownership.
The tried-and-tested b maXX automation and drive solution from Baumüller is being expanded with the regenerative feedback units of the b maXX 5100 series. The b maXX 5100 series supplies one or more power modules and feeds braking energy back into the power supply in a sinusoidal shape.
Energy-efficient power input of braking energy
Considering energy costs, there are significant savings opportunities for the user over the service life of a machine. Regenerative feedback systems help to reduce energy consumption by feeding the braking energy back into the power supply instead of converting it into heat via a ballast resistor — which also benefits the environment.
b maXX 5100 units are seamlessly integrated into the b maXX automation and drive solution from Baumüller. By realizing 3 different sizes over a power range from 36 kW to 200 kW of DC link voltage, the user benefits of the b maXX series of modularity and flexibility have been consistently implemented. System consistency is ensured both by adopting the housing technology and connection data and by integrating the parameterization of the b maXX 5100 into the existing b maXX ProDrive operating software.
