Variable Frequency Drives and Soft Starters can save you money on operating costs and increase the service life of your electric motors.
Using a soft starter or variable frequency drive temporarily reduces the load and torque as well as the inrush current of the motor during start up. This reduces the mechanical stress on the motor and shaft, and reduces the electrodynamic forces on the attached power cables and electrical distribution network, extending the lifespan of the system.
If you are interested in saving energy in your plant, consider variable frequency drives (VFDs) for your motors. Research supports that they help save energy, reduce maintenance and cut utility costs. Both AC & DC drives have a history of proven results.
These products improve your systems by providing improved speed control, flow control, pressure control, tension control, torque control and acceleration/deceleration control.
Applied Dynamics offers a selection of AC and DC drives, as well as soft starters and other motor control options from many major manufacturers, including Yaskawa, Danfoss, Benshaw and Hitachi. Applied Dynamics has a team of experts to properly specify, commission, and tune your system.
