Rockwell Automation introduces Allen-Bradley PowerFlex DC field controller

July 2, 2018 — The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex DC field controller from Rockwell Automation is designed to enable customers to upgrade their DC motor application to a modern system.

The DC field controller provides three-phase, four-quadrant (reversing) DC motor or generator field control. The field controller can be used on its own or with a PowerFlex DC digital drive. In stand-alone mode, it provides power to a DC motor field with a fixed reference by using fixed I/O. The field controller can also control electromagnets and other non-motor loads.

The field controller offers output ratings from 17 amps to 575 amps and input of 200-volts and 500-volts. It enhances the capability of the PowerFlex DC drive family, designed for stand-alone and coordinated drive system applications. The PowerFlex DC drive family is well suited for DC motor applications and retrofits up to 6,000 Hp or 4000 kW.

The PowerFlex DC family has core capabilities aligned with the PowerFlex AC family of drives, including integration into a Logix-based environment, feedback and communication options, as well as voltage settings designed to global standards.
