Converters Offer "Green" Alternative

The RCU Series of regenerative converter units are designed to offer an affordable “green” alternative to traditional dynamic braking (DB) systems.

Instead of wasting regenerative energy as heat, these converters reclaim that energy, converting it into 3-phase alternating current (AC) power. The energy is recycled through the AC line, resulting in increased energy efficiency and reduced energy consumption. The converters need only five connections for basic operation. They incorporate LC-filtering to mitigate harmonics and an LED display for monitoring of operation and faults. Available in several sizes, the units can be parallel-connected for higher power handling.
