New White Paper

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.

M2L MV VFD Offers Maximum Availability and Minimized Downtime

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.
