Utilize braking energy effectively
A prime candidate for this function are machine tools, whose headstock spindle drives generate large amounts of braking energy that would otherwise go unused. The function is also well suited for conveyor systems that move heavy loads vertically. Without power regeneration, not only would the braking energy go to waste, but the resulting heat would require additional cooling and consume even more power.
Regenerative braking is implemented particularly efficiently in the new 2-axis modules from the ACOPOS P3 series. One of the axes is configured as the feedback path to return excess power to the mains.
