Print Friendly, PDF & Email


This 16 hour, 2 day training program, is designed to provide the basic knowledge necessary – to enable maintenance personnel in troubleshooting, maintaining, replacing, start-up, and interfacing the Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 525 drive.

Students will learn how to use the front panel and Connected Components Workbench (CCW) to access parameters and diagnose faults. Communications using both EtherNet I/P and USB ports will be covered. The most commonly used parameters will be explained and students will practice using them.

Students will locate power, signal and control terminals, monitor drive conditions, clear faults, gain the ability to troubleshoot drive problems and perform preventative maintenance.
