August 1, 2016 — Power management company Eaton today announced a new version of its medium-voltage SC9000 adjustable frequency drive (AFD) designed to help customers support energy efficiency, reduce ownership costs and enhance power system reliability. The Eaton SC9000 general purpose (GP) drives are designed for a wide range of original equipment manufacturer (OEM), water and wastewater, utility, industrial and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications.
Based on the enhanced design, the SC9000 GP may be maintenance free for up to 10 years. These drives have a low part count topology and is standard-equipped with a redundant cooling system to help improve reliability.
The SC9000 GP medium-voltage drives are tested to Underwriters Laboratories (UL®) and Canadian Underwriters Laboratories (cUL) standards for medium-voltage power conversion equipment.
Eaton’s medium-voltage drive solutions are designed to help customers choose the solution that fits specific application requirements. The SC9000 GP is designed using the same control technology as Eaton’s SC9000 EP series of drives. For environments where safety is a primary concern, the SC9000 EP arc-resistant drives offer an arc-resistant Type 2B enclosure to help enhance safety from the front, sides and rear of the enclosure.
SC9000 models are compatible with Eaton’s extensive suite of medium-voltage motor control solutions including Ampgard® control solutions and ArcGardTM arc-resistant switchgear.
