AF-6 Series MultiPulse Drive Panel

The AF-6 Series MultiPulse Drive Panel is a complete panel solution that can meet IEEE-519 recommendations. These panels include a phase shift transformer and additional line rectifiers to cancel harmonics reflected back to the incoming power line. Both the AF-600 FP Fan & Pump and AF-650 GP General Purpose drives are available along with a variety of control, network and bypass options. Put to rest concerns about power quality and electrical systems with excessive line distortion, created by non-linear loads like variable speed drives, by using GE AF-6 Series MultiPulse Drive Panels.


Please note, because so many things affect a site’s power distribution quality, IEE519-1992 allows for variations in the level of harmonics a device may generate. Customers concerned with the actual level of harmonics on their system should have a system study performed and select the product that best meets their needs – GE MultiPulse Drive Panels, GE Drive Panels with Matrix filters, GE Drive Panels with reactors, or externally mounted GE Matrix or GEMActive products.
