The b maXX 5000 series drives cover ratings from 1–35kW and incorporate a line voltage measurement system that adapts to different supply voltages around the world.

The compact drives, which can be used in regenerative applications, offer a choice between air or cold-plate cooling, and support Ethernet communications. The drives incorporate safety functions and can be used in energy-saving regenerative applications.
