Converter DC link capacitors need to be reformed (re-aged) if the converter has been non-
operational for more than one year. Without reforming capacitors may be damaged when the
converter starts to operate. The reforming methods introduced in this guide require, that the
converter has been stocked clean and dry. It is recommended to reform the capacitors once
a year.

+RZWRFKHFNWKHFRQYHUWHUDJH
Converter serial number defines the week, when the converter has been built:
• 7 digit: e.g. 7260034, 7 denotes manufacturing year (1997), 26 manufacturing week and 0034
running manufacturing number.
• 8 digit: e.g. 18250125, 1 denotes manufacturing country (1= Finland), 8 manufacturing year
(1998), 25 manufacturing week and 0125 running manufacturing number.
• 10 digit: e.g. 1983200725, 1 denotes manufacturing country, 98 manufacturing year, 32
manufacturing week and 00725 running manufacturing number.

The intermediate circuit of the converter is kept in its nominal voltage for the reforming time
to “wake up” the capacitors. The reforming time required depends on how long the converter
has been stocked (non-operational).

Switch the power on to the converter for a time given in Figure 1 (Method 1). The converter
“wakes up” its capacitors by itself. Power the ACS 600 MultiDrive ACN 634 drive units and
the ACx 604/607 units 0400-3, 0490-5 and 0490-6 and up once a year to keep the capacitors
in operational condition.

Use method 2 A or method 2 B (below) for capacitor reforming if the converters have been
stocked (non-operational) for two or more years.

Capacitor reforming is realised by switching-in a rectifier and a resistor circuit, which is
connected to the converter DC link. The reforming circuit is given below. Circuit component
values for different voltages are given in the table below. See the reforming time from Figure
1.

Capacitor reforming is based on DC power supply, which is connected to converter DC link. Power
supply current charges converter capacitors. If power supply cannot limit the current, voltage is
increased gradually (with e.g. 100 V steps). Maximum recommended reforming current is 500 mA.
An appropriate reforming voltage is (1.35... 2 )x UX. See reforming time from Figure 1.
