Benshaw’s state-of-the-art M2L (Modular Multi-Level) Medium Voltage Drive family differs radically from other multi-level systems in the market today. The drive consists of three independent components: A standard multi-pulse phase-shifting transformer, a standard multi-pulse diode-based rectifier, and a modular power-cell-based multi-level inverter. This modular system arrangement creates tremendous installation flexibility, greatly reduces arc flash energy and substantially improves reliability.

There are many variables to consider when choosing to start a Synchronous motor with a Solid State Reduced Voltage or Across the Line Starter.
Benshaw’s M2L Medium Voltage Variable Frequency Drive is engineered for the utmost availability, which is why drive downtime is minimized in case of a failed power cell. The modular design of the inverter allows the operator to follow a few simple steps to replace a failed power cell with a spare power cell and have it back up and running quickly.
Transformer feeds were needed for two individual loads, space was limited and the customer needed maximum protection for two separate applications. Being a critical process, one system must always be running.
Inching is used in various applications such as conveyor belts, and ball mills. Inching involves short thrust of motions at reduced power.
