PowerFlex® 700 AC Drives are available in a wide range of horsepower ratings. These drives control three-phase induction motors in applications with requirements ranging from the simplest speed control to the most demanding torque control. The PowerFlex 700 AC drive offers application-specific features and parameters for lifting, oil wells, and speed and positioning applications. Available packaged drives provide additional control, power, and enclosure options in standardized designs. The PowerFlex 700 Fan and Pump packaged drive is a cost-effective solution for speed control in variable torque fan and pump applications.
PowerFlex 700 Frame 7 - 10 drives are now in End of Life status. They are still available for sale, but we recommend that you consider the new generation PowerFlex 755 drive family as an alternative.

Article 310, Table 310.15(B) 16 Allowable Ampacities for Insulated Conductors up to 2000V, Correction Factors, and Other Possible Constraints. It is the responsibility of the Designer, Installer and End User to verify that all NEC, CEC and Local Codes/Standards are strictly adhered too. Consult Rockwell Automation Drive Family Motor Cable Length Restrictions Tables (Rockwell Automation Publication DRIVES-IN001L-EN-P for maximum VFD cable lengths). To protect the motor from reflective waves, limit the length of the motor cables from the drive to the motor. General Cable can provide some direction as to what cables could be considered for use with these drives since NEC Article 430 Motors, Motor Circuits and Controllers would be the minimum guidelines for review. General Cable cannot recommend a specific cable for a specific drive system since we do not know all drive system parameters and customer's applications. Nothing herein is intended to modify, alter or extend any warranties for General Cable products.
