Application notes

Multi-Master/Lead-Lag Application

The PowerXL DG1 has the functionality to control a system of multiple drives and motors to allow for redundancy and staging of motors to meet varying output requirements.

PowerXL Redundant Drive Application

The PowerXL DG1 is able to operate a redundant drive scheme with two drives connected to provide a secondary drive as a back-up.

AC Line Reactors vs DC Link Chokes (SVX vs DG1 Comparison)

This application note is designed to provide an overview of why impedance on the line side of a drive is beneficial in adjustable frequency drives and compares the expected performance of line reactors and DC link chokes.

PowerXL DG1 Configuration to Rockwell PLC

The purpose of this application note is to demonstrate how to operate a PowerXL DG1 drive via Ethernet/IP and a Rockwell CompactLogix PLC.
