R1000 Series

Regenerative Unit

The R1000 regenerative braking unit is a smart and efficient alternative to dynamic braking for single or multi-axis drive installations with a high amount regenerative motor operation. Suitable for both regenerative individual drives and systems of inverter drives, servo axis or robots, the R1000 feeds excess braking energy back into the power grid instead of dissipating it as heat.

  • Replacing braking resistors saves space and facilitates installation
  • Since the resistors do not generate heat, less cooling is required for the switch cabinet; this saves energy and reduces costs
  • Provides regenerative energy for other consumers in the plant and, thus, reduces the total power consumption of buildings or factories
  • Allows 4-quadrant-operation without braking resistors
