Powerflex 400 Product Profile

Powerflex 400 Product Profile
Providing users with easy installation in
mechanical fan and pump systems, the
Allen-Bradley PowerFlex® 400 AC drive offers
a wide range of built-in features allowing for
seamless building system integration.
Available in power ratings of 2.2-250 kW
(3.0-350 Hp) @ 380 – 480V AC and
2.2-37 kW (3.0-50 Hp) @ 200 – 240V AC,
the PowerFlex 400 AC Drive is designed to
meet global OEM, contractor and end-user
demands for flexibility, space savings and
ease-of-use. The PowerFlex 400 AC drive is
a cost-effective solution for speed control in
variable torque fan and pump applications.
• Integral PID Controller allows a process
variable to be maintained by automatically
adjusting the output frequency
• Three programmable Skip Frequencies and
Bands prevent the drive from running
continuously at resonant speeds which
could cause mechanical breakdowns
• Selectable Fan/Pump Curves provide
reduced voltage patterns for centrifugal fan
and pump loads
• Sleep Function allows the drive to be cycled
off when the system demand drops below
a preset level and to be restarted
automatically when the demand increases
• For applications that require unattended
operation, the Start At PowerUp Function
provides the ability to resume running
once power is restored after a power outage
• Connection to fire and life safety systems via
Freeze/Fire and Purge inputs
• Auxiliary Motor Control allows staging of
additional line-started motors to meet
system demand
• Damper Input can be used to disable the
drive output until desired damper position
is obtained, even with a valid run command

Operator Keypad
• Integral keypad features 2 line, 16 character LCD display
• 5 LED indicators provide system configuration and fault status
• Configurable Hand/Off/Auto function buttons
• RS485 communications integral to base drive
• Embedded Modbus RTU, Metasys N2 and P1-Plant Floor Network protocols are
parameter selectable and require no additional hardware or software
• Supports Drive Serial Interface (DSI) communication modules and accessories
including DeviceNet™, EtherNet/IP™, ControlNet™, PROFIBUS™ DP, BACnet®,
LonWorks® and Bluetooth® communications adapters
• DriveExplorer™ and DriveTools™ SP software can be used
to easily program, monitor and control the drives
Premier Integration with PowerFlex Drives
For simplified AC drive start-up and reduced development time using the Allen-Bradley®
Logix control platform, we’ve integrated PowerFlex® AC drive configuration with RSLogix™
5000 software. This single-software approach simplifies parameter and tag programming
while still allowing stand-alone drive software tool use on the factory floor.
• Installation flexibility is enhanced by the UL plenum rating allowing
for direct mounting in an air handling system
• Disconnect and contactor bypass packages in NEMA 1, 12, 3R and 4 designs
simplify installation and startup by combining operator interface, control,
communications and power options in preconfigured assemblies
• Contactor bypass packages supplied with 3 - contactors allowing
drive test functionality and drive isolation when in bypass mode
• Meets seismic requirements of the 2003 International Building
Code as specified by AC156
• UL and cUL (CSA) Listed
• UL Plenum Rating
• C-Tick
• CE Marked
• EMC EN61800-3 (with external filter)
• Low Voltage EN60204-1/EN50178
