Sprint Electric has increased its range of PLX digital DC drives up to 2,250 A (980 kW/1,320 hp). All models, ranging from 650 A to 2,250 A, are offered with either top-entry or bottom-entry three-phase supply inputs, and in 690 VAC or 480 VAC. Available as two-quadrant or regenerative four-quadrant types, these drives are suitable for controlling DC motors in heavy industrial applications, such as metalworking, steel mills and mining, and the cement, rubber and plastics industries. The high-voltage model is for use with 750-VDC armature motors, and provides an increase in shaft power of up to 1,500 kW/2,000 hp.
