Conveyor and pumping applications  using P2 series drives and Optistick option

Following the  successful implementation of Invertek Drives in Tru Blu's Brisbane plant,  Invertek Australasia has supplied over 100 drives with Ethernet modules to the  company's newest plant in Perth.

Tru Blu is one of Australia's biggest beverage  brands. It needed an industry proven variable speed drive solution for a range  of conveyor and pumping applications, all with Ethernet IP Options to control  production at the new facility. Tru Blu also wanted adjustable torque /  shearpin protection for the conveyors, and the pumps needed dry pump protection  and simple PI Control programming for ease of use.

Invertek  Australasia decided the best solution would be to offer the Optidrive P2 series drive for the conveyors for a number of reasons:

  • ethernet IP Module compatibility
  • beneficial torque limiting
  • energy optimising feature for this
  • constant torque drive was a bonus

The pump protection  features of the Optidrive  HVAC, coupled with the simple PI Control setup made this combination the  perfect solution for Tru Blu's requirements.

Easy programming was an additional benefit and once the project was complete it took under an hour  to save 100 Variable Speed Drive Programs to the computer thanks to the Bluetooth  Optistick Option – this alone would have taken Tru Blu days to record  manually.

Invertek Australasia  Director, Brett Masters, commented, "TruBlu was particularly impressed with how easy it was  to get the drives up and running – meaning it could get on with the important  business of quenching the nation's thirst!"

Invertek's new  Product Manager, Justin Walker, explains why the Optidrive  P2 and Optidrive  HVAC offered the perfect combination for Tru Blu's requirements. "In  applications where pumps are utilised to convey beverages, maximum 'up-time' is  critical. A situation such as 'dry running' of the pump can cause significant  damage, as well as production down-time - this is where the Optidrive's  HVAC feature 'Dry  Run Protection' comes into its own.
