New AC Drive for the medium and heavy-duty industries

Bonfiglioli, leader in the manufacturing of gearboxes, gearmotors and drive systems, presents the drive controller Active Cube 7 from the proven inverter series Active Cube with an improved power range of 160 or 200 kW with water cooling. The drives are available for 400 Volt supply voltage. The compact ACU 7 converters in the 160 kW version have a high-power density of 2 kW/dm³. The 200 kW water-cooled version of the new ACU 7 drives achieves the extra ordinary power-density value of 2.5 kW/dm3.
The improved ACU 7 drives are particularly suitable to medium and heavy-duty industries such as material handling, mining, sugar, water and waste water, road construction, and plastics.

Besides the known features, Bonfiglioli’s new ACU 7 inverter solutions offer further options such as control features with 32 PLC function blocks and 16 variables, as well as several feedback sensors. On top of this, there is a wide range of digital and analog outputs and inputs inclusive of PTC, PT100 or KTY temperature sensors. The standard communication protocol portfolio like Profinet, Ethernet IP, EtherCAT, VABus/TCP and CANopen are also available in the ACU 7 inverters. The safety function “Safe Torque Off” comes along as an integrated and standard feature too.

For many applications, the new and more effective ACU 7 drives represent a benchmark in the high-power range, characterized by flexibility, open communication and the smallest required assembly space.


The new improved ACU 7 drive controllers by Bonfiglioli with 160 kW are particularly suitable for demanding applications in medium and heavy-duty industries.
