Need More Motor Control? Vary the Speed of Motor Operation:
Variable frequency drives (VFD) control electric motors by varying their voltage and frequency during operation. Applied Dynamics offers drives that are very easy and efficient to use, offering powerful control solutions with exceptional speed control and torque response which provides superior vector performance. Learn more about our variable frequency drives by contacting us.
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.
Gradually Start & Stop Electric Motors:
Some industry applications cannot handle abrupt starts and stops. Electrical motors draw more current when starting than during operation which drops voltage, and can cause other electronics to shut down if not properly managed for certain applications. Our soft starters efficiently reduce the load and torque during startups and shutdowns which reduces mechanical stress over the lifetime of the equipment. Our product line of soft starters come in a variety of additional components to help multiple industries control and enhance their application. Learn more about our soft starters by contacting us..
Troubleshooting, Repair & Maintenance
The trick to troubleshooting variable frequency drives (VFDs) is to fix the problem and not the symptoms. When a fuse blows, is this the problem or a symptom of the problem? Of course we know it’s only a symptom; something is causing the fuse to blow. We can replace all the fuses we want, but the problem will still exists.
The VFD controller panel is the heart of the application. The VFD panel takes in a fixed voltage and frequency and gives out a variable voltage and frequency to the motor. In doing so, drive gives off heat. The bigger the drive, the greater the heat. Without proper cooling a drive will shut down on overtemperature.
Overtemperature and overcurrent go hand-in-hand. Sometimes the faults will even interchange. An overcurrent fault could be the result of overtemperature. A clean well-ventilated drive always seems to work better and last longer. Overcurrent faults are the most common faults that will shut down a drive. There are at least 20 to 30 causes of over-current faults. Finding the actual cause of the fault in question is the challenge.
