Industrial Motor Controls
Power Business Efficiently with Variable Speed Drives and Motor Controls
Optimize Energy Efficiency Enterprise-Wide
Variable speed drives are a remarkably efficient way to power numerous applications found throughout industrial and commercial operations. Common uses include:
- Blowers for air conditioning units
- Boiler pumps for heating units
- Conveyor systems
- Production line cleaning, cooling and drying processes
- Drilling and grinding machinery
- Stamping equipment
A ½ HP electric motor costs approximately $240/year to operate, while the compressed air motor equivalent costs more than $2,300.
Drive Energy Efficiency with Motor Controls
You can improve overall system performance by teaming variable frequency drives with motor controls or smart motor controls. Traditional mechanical starts and stops are abrupt. The full-on power up and hard-stop shut off wastes valuable energy and puts unnecessary stresses on expensive capital equipment. The smooth start and stop capabilities of motor controls save energy and help extend the life of the drive and the equipment it powers.
In addition, smart motor controls enable multiple devices to be linked into a single, integrated system. This takes overall energy efficiency to another level while improving operational efficiencies on the plant floor.
The Key to Minimizing Energy Use is Precision
You need to know exactly how much power every device requires to function at peak efficiency. If you use a 1/2 HP drive when a 1/4 HP would meet demand, you’re paying more than you need to for the drive… and you’re consuming more energy than necessary.
Motor Controls Protect Equipment and Employees
Stresses on capital equipment accelerate wear and lead to increased maintenance costs. Even worse, premature failure threatens both uptime and employee safety.
