master follower set up on an ABB vsd

'Digging deep' to help a customer save energy, EDC NE has been making good use of ABB's innovative drive software to reduce energy costs and keep production running.

EDC North East recently installed and commissioned a master/follower VSD set up on a cement kiln at a customer’s quarry.

Using ABB’s onboard adaptive programming, the master and follower drives can be changed over while the process is running, meaning that if one drive trips, the other will take over without halting production.

This set up will give the customer more control over the manufacturing process and save energy by only using the power required at any given time.
