The KDV 1.3-100-200/300-115 is part of the Indramat KDV family of power supply units. These modules convert three phase AC power into regulated DC power to juice up Indramat drives and servo or spindle motors. One KDV 1.3-100-200/300-115 can power as many as 10 drives, plus servos running machinery with as many as six axes.
One of the great things about this range of power supply modules is that they can work in generator mode, converting energy produced by the machine’s braking into heat which can be fed back into the mains.
They also use a heatsink mounted to protrude outside the cabinet. This allows about 80% of the heat loss to take place outside of the cabinet. In many cases, this obviates the need for cooling in the cabinet.
These heat solutions are the reason that the KDV 1.3-100-200/300-115 is often described as a cold-running power supply unit.
