Here we use a model system to show you why direct current (DC) is seen as a key technology for the integration of energy storage systems and sources of regenerative energy in production processes, and what benefits there are for you as a machine manufacturer and plant operator in the open approach that we support.
We actively participate in the definition and design of an open DC network for factory automation and develop suitable controls and drives.
Our added values:
• Connectivity: Hybrid technology (DC-Power and Ethernet)
• Openness: Open DC network as future industry standard
• Modularity: Drive systems with control cabinet devices, field devices or highly integrated drives (Smart motor)
DC-INDUSTRIE is a joint project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, and its aim is to reshape the energy supply of industrial plants by using a smart, open DC network and to digitalise the industrial energy supply architecture. Along with Lenze, 20 other industrial companies, four research institutes and the ZVEI are jointly working on this energy system of the future.
