Background & Requirement

The hot rolling production line of a steel company has been designed with annual output of 5 million tons. The main products are various plain carbon steel, high-quality carbon steel, low alloy steel, shipbuilding steel, spiral welded pipe and other steel coils with σb≤800N/mm2.

The VFD used in the production line have been out of production for many years, and the spare parts supply cycle is long and there also has a risk of supply interruption, which brings major hidden dangers to production security. A high-reliability and high-performance domestic transmission product is needed to achieve seamless replacement to ensure the stable operation of the equipment.


INVT solution

INVT has formulated a transformation plan based on the actual needs of customers, using INVT GD800 series engineering transmission VFD to replace the original rolling line 380V sixth section transmission cabinets and 1-5 group cold roller table transmission cabinets, with a total of 17 cabinets. Communicating with the host computer TDC system through Profibus-DP, the GD800 inverter adopts seamless replacement software and is fully compatible with the DP communication protocol of the original inverter without modifying the TDC system.
