Saving energy and increasing productivity are not mutually exclusive. The B&R drive system is highly dynamic, but optimized for energy efficiency through energy regeneration, true power factor correction, an intelligent cooling concept and a shared DC bus for all inverters. Through direct control of LinMot linear motors, the B&R drive system is an efficient replacement for costly pneumatics. Intelligent autotuning further reduces energy costs by preventing oscillating control loops. Ready-made solutions for variable speed pump drives tap the potential for energy savings on hydraulic machines. To make this measurable, B&R offers a wide range of energy monitoring solutions for PLCs, drives and even entire process control systems.
