This drive was selected due to several innovative technologies, including its removable control module – which allows drive installation and configuration to be carried out in parallel, rather than in consecutive stages; thus, realising valuable time savings for machine builders. In addition, the same control module fits the entire range of power modules, reducing customers’ spare-parts inventory. However, most importantly, the PowerFlex 525 was developed for the global market at Rockwell Automation’s Asia-Pacific Business Center in Singapore. This signifies the evolution of Asia from a low-cost manufacturing region to a vital product-development hub for the company.
