Altivar Process 6000 Medium Voltage Services-oriented Drive

Enables process optimization, and allows businesses to plug into the Industrial Internet of Things.

Schneider Electric, a manufacturer of digital transformation in energy management and automation,  launches the Altivar Process 6000 (ATV6000) medium voltage service-oriented drive. The ATV6000 is designed to be a smart, connected product that can help businesses by enabling process optimization, improving energy management, enhancing asset management, and providing a tailored engineering system. Schneider Electric is currently working with UL and expect to have a listing by December, 2019.

The ATV6000 is designed to:

·     Process performance and asset management capabilities so businesses can achieve up to a 20% productivity increase and 20% downtime reduction,

·     Give real time information and key performance indicators to offer new level of operation insight for enhanced energy management to reduce consumptions and increase savings

·     Have a medium voltage offer to broaden the line of Altivar variable speed drives.

Equipped with Schneider Electric's EcoStruxure Asset Advisor, the ATV6000 is meant to provide a system to optimize the operation and maintenance of installations. It allows businesses to plug into the Industrial Internet of Things to manage maintenance tasks on assets with preventive and predictive management based on real-time assessments and predictive analytics, according to the company.

"Our customers are focused on reducing energy consumption and operating costs, while still meeting their production goals," says Garrett Abbott-Frey, US Enclosed Senior Drive Offer Manager, Schneider Electric. "Connected systems like the Altivar Process 6000 are designed to offer sustainable efficiency without adding additional costs so users can monitor energy usage and optimize their overall operation."

The ATV6000 with EcoStruxure Asset Advisor are used to transform data into insights to help run operations more efficiently and safer, with greater availability and increased profits. As part of EcoStruxure, Schneider Electric's IIoT-enabled, plug-and-play, open, interoperable architecture and platform architecture, this service-oriented drive is designed to deliver greater energy management through smart data collection, real time performance information, and lifetime energy monitoring to reduce consumption.   

The ATV6000 is made to provide a higher level of customization to meet specific purposes, offering flexibility for modifications and extensions. The company claims these systems will result in Capex and Opex savings.

The digital capabilities and mechanical characteristics of the ATV6000 also should improve and ease operator efficiency, onsite maintenance operations, troubleshooting with QR codes, and offer comfortable usability with the 10" Magelis HMI. While the ATV6000's modular architecture and front access design are made to provide simple parts replacement, quicker maintenance, and minimized spare part stock references.
