The ACOPOSinverter P86 is a series of frequency inverters for three-phase synchronous and induction motors, with or without encoders. It covers a wide power spectrum from 0.75 to 75 kW and the company states that it is particularly well-suited for packaging, conveyor system, material processing and hoisting gear applications.

B&R’s P86-series inverters already comply with the IE efficiency factors standardized in EN 61800-9-2. The future-proof inverters are easy to configure and exceptionally flexible. The new ACOPOSinverter series is also equipped with the dual-channel safety function Safe Torque Off (STO) in accordance with SIL3 / Ple.

Powerful dynamics and scalability

The frequency inverters are particularly well suited for dynamic applications. They can deliver up to 220% of the nominal output torque for two seconds. They can be used for open-loop or closed-loop control of induction motors (IE2, IE3), synchronous motors and reluctance motors. An integrated POWERLINK interface, numerous I/O channels, and embedded encoder and optional interface cards offer maximum flexibility in plant design.

The ACOPOSinverter P86 series has an exceptionally rugged design and is built to perform under harsh conditions. They easily cope with vibrations, shock, dust and temperatures up to 60°C while maintaining consistent performance.

Extensive portfolio

The new P86 series further expands B&R’s ACOPOSinverter portfolio. Together with the P66, P76 and P96 series, they cover a range of drive technology profiles for three-phase induction motors and synchronous motors with a voltage supply from 200 to 600 V and a power rating from 0.18 to 200 kW. With easily scalable functionality and full integration into the B&R automation landscape, the ACOPOSinverter family is suited for a wide range of applications, from small machine modules to complex plants.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
