Toshiba's Plus Pack outdoor adjustable speed drive is revolutionizing the industry by combining Toshiba's robust Plus Pack technology and Toshiba's proprietary, ground-breaking Virtual Linear Pump (VLP) Technology.

VLP Technology allows the Plus Pack to directly, precisely, and linearly control pressure, temperature, level, or flow using single or multiple devices while balancing the load between them. This innovative drive is designed to withstand even the harshest of conditions and is engineered to provide tight speed control, while offering the industry's most user-friendly operator interface.

Key Features

  •    -   Heavy duty outdoor duty NEMA 3R enclosure as standard
  •    -   Up to 1500HP low voltage
  •    -   Capable of 12 pulse or 18 pulse front end fantastic for harmonic mitigation solution


Patented 18-Pulse Autotransformer Technology

In order to reduce harmonic injection to the utility, the Plus Pack is available in 12-pulse and 18-pulse diode frontend designs. The 12-pulse drive can achieve a typical current Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of 9% and must be used with a conventional drive-duty phase-shifting isolation transformer. The 18-pulse Plus Pack is furnished with built-in phase-shifting patented auto-transformer technology which eliminates the need for complicated cabling and allows for a perfect blend of reliability, cost savings, and a reduced footprint.

Advanced Design Features Enhance Reliability

The Plus Pack has a variety of features that make this unique drive an ideal solution for a wide variety of applications requiring unparalleled motor control and rugged reliability.

Non Air-to-Air Heat Exchangers

The heat exchangers eliminate the maintenance issues associated with refrigerant-based cooling units while preventing air exchange between air outside and inside the cabinet.

Non-Ventilated Design

The Plus Pack design incorporates heat sinks out-the-back, heat exchangers, and gasketed doors which protrude from the back of the cabinet and are cooled by front-removable centrifugal fans.

Heat Exchanger Technology

This technology is utilized to remove residual internal cabinet heat instead of relying on refrigerant-based cooling systems and is an unparalleled solution used to increase a cabinet's heat dissipation while minimizing footprint.

Closed-Loop Air Cooling System

The air cooling system in the Plus Pack maintains a clean and sealed internal environment and ensures optimum performance and maximum life of electronic components, while protecting against external contaminants and humidity.

Plus Pack VLP Technology Features

The VLP algorithm has helped to make PID obsolete and reinvents the way that users control pressure or flow. Once VLP points have been established, the Plus Pack will perform the following functions:

  •    -   Monitor Multi-Pump Systems for Friction Losses, Impeller Variations, & Other System Variables
  •    -   Adjust the System Accordingly to Ensure Only Necessary Pumps are Operating
  •    -   Balance Flow Rates for Each Operating Pump Under All Conditions
  •    -   Balance the Load for All Operating Pumps


Industrial Applications

The Plus Pack drive can be utilized in industries as diverse as; Chemical, City Municipality, Food, Industrial Marine, Irrigation, Paper, Petroleum, Power Plant, Oil & Gas, Mining & Mineral, and Water/Wastewater.

Applicable Applications

  •    -   Blowers
  •    -   Centrifugal Pumps
  •    -   Conveyors
  •    -   Crushers
  •    -   Compressors
  •    -   Centrifuges
  •    -   Fans
  •    -   Lift Stations
  •    -   Water Towers

Having a workforce that’s well trained on current technologies and equipment is critical for any manufacturer. When workers lack necessary skill sets, they are more likely to make expensive mistakes that result in costly downtime. Without proper training, employees are also less productive and have lower job satisfaction. They often feel as though they aren’t moving forward in their career and get discouraged. In addition, the correlation between well-trained workers and a safer manufacturing environment shouldn’t be overlooked.

Clearly, the importance of industrial training must be a key consideration for employers. Unfortunately, developing a workforce with necessary knowledge isn’t always easy. A variety of factors are creating a serious skills gap, and many companies are struggling to find ways to address the challenges.

What drives the requirement for accurate, high-quality labels? With so much hanging in the balance for manufacturers and retailers competing on a global scale, there's no good reason to ignore the need for label quality. Mislabeled packaging could have consequences that range from wasted product to (potentially severe) consumer health issues.

Let's take a look at four major areas that illustrate the importance of ensuring the accuracy and legibility of product and packaging labels and discuss a solution that can help avoid errors.

Area 1: General product traceability

Product traceability, in a general sense, is essential for consumer safety, regulatory compliance and overall quality perception. If there’s a problem with a product, traceability allows the consumer, retailer or another entity to quickly locate and segregate defective products in the event of a recall.
