Bonfiglioli AEC regenerative drives

Thanks to its extensive experience in the development of electronic industrial drives and renewable energy, Bonfiglioli is able to offer an effective solution for restoring braking energy.

As such a solution is a series of active regenerative system inverters AEC. In many industrial electrically controlled applications, inertia in moving mechanisms can drive electric motors because they act as brakes.

They convert kinetic energy into electrical energy. Thanks to the innovative product Bonfiglioli, this energy is returned to the network during the regeneration process.
