150 AC Drive Systems

  • 150 AC Drive System with IGBT Controls Delivers Peak Productivity

    Using advanced AC propulsion technology, the world leader in drive systems for off-highway vehicles has created a new standard for the 150-ton haul truck class. The GE150AC™ drive system, with high-power, air-cooled IGBT controls, outperforms similar-sized DC and mechanical systems, delivering higher sustained speed on grade and continuous retarding to near zero speed.
