Jonathan Bivings' completed field retrofit

Jonathan Bivings completed a field retrofit where he replaced a GE drive with an A1000 on a mill at Central Plains Cement Company in Oklahoma. The gearbox on this thing is the size of a small room. The A1000 drive is used to creep the very large motor in a jog mode up to 6 Hz. A lot of technical resources were involved in planning this complicated retrofit (Steve Lyons, Lonnie Gillilan). Thank you so much to everyone who pitched in!

frameless motor parker
A frameless motor consists of a stator assembly and rotor assembly with permanent magnets. Hall effects may be offered as an option to provide feedback if an encoder is not selected for the application. The frameless motor does not include shaft, bearings, or endbells. The intent is that the motor will be directly integrated into the mechanical structure of the machine (the rotor is connected directly to the machines rotating shaft) leading to an optimized design, reduced footprint, and lighter machine weight.
