Allen Bradley

allen bradley logoAllen Bradley is a brand-name company that produces Factory Automation Equipment manufactured by Rockwell Automation. The company manufactured drives called Variable Frequency drives (VFD), which is also known as an adjustable-frequency drive.

The company was founded by Dr. Stanton Allen and Lynde Bradley in 1903. They invested $1,000 into the company at the time. Allen Bradley is often associated with sensor for low temperatures.

For example, a power Flex 4 drive is designed to connect this drive to a Modbus PanelView 500. The PanelView is in charge of starting and stopping the drives. It also changes the speed command and reads the fault word.

Another purpose for this drive is also to drive the network and control the drive using a Modbus Scanner. The materials can be easily adapted to the use for future DSI-based Hosts.

Another kind of drive is a Force Master/Slave Parallel AC Drive. This drive is intended to be used as a supplementary addition to the FORCE Drive.

This drive uses inverters in applications where the required power is greater than the largest drive. The system overall uses two inverters to supply power to a single motor with two sets of isolated stator windings.

The inverters are connected to a common inverter with each inverter operating on its own system level. The master drive controls the motor current and speed in the adaptive control panel.

The master drive within the unit is connected via interconnected cable which provides current references and control information as well we high fault protection.

There is also a 1336 Impact A/C drive. The purpose of this drive is to be for personal use and not in a factory.

It is typically used in auxiliary hardware and various hardware components.  It contains functional blocks which are used to perform internal logical, mathematical, timer, or counter features.

If the items need to be repaired, there are a couple of factors that need to be considered when looking into a company. For example, when one is looking into the exchange process, you should not wait until the defective unit is sent in for repairs.

The customer should receive a remanufactured piece which will take the place of the unit that is not functioning properly. By doing the exchange, it will keep the system running and not cause any down time. Listed below is how the exchange process typically works.

1. Visit the company’s website and fill out a form to initiate the process or call the company up directly.

2. Pay the remanufactured price at the beginning this way the new part is shipped out immediately to reduce any downtime that might be occurring.

3. Once the new remanufactured item is received, the bad motor or part is to be placed in a box and sent back to the company so that they can repair it.

4. Once the bad machine part is received by the company, the company should issue the customer a credit for the items that were paid for up front at the beginning of the process.
