When sizing a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), the most important consideration is to match the size of the VFD to the AC induction motor.  AC induction motors have nameplates that list critical specifications.  Examples of these specifications are Manufacturer, Model Number, Part Number, Serial Number, Design Type, Voltage rating, Horsepower, Hertz, Full Load Amps, RPM,…

Electric motors have been around since the 1800’s creating torque for many applications.  As applications got more sophisticated the need to vary the speed of the motor began to surface.  Enter the Variable Frequency Drive (VFD).  Before we go much further let’s cover the basics of motors to get the foundation of how the VFD…

Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) are an electronic control device used to provide adjustable speed control for AC and DC electric motors. The most common AC motor type is an AC induction or Asynchronous motor. The benefits of using a VFD are energy savings for HVAC fan and pump applications, improved motor torque and speed control…

A key component that is driving industrial growth in America is Innovation. Technology is constantly changing and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Additive Manufacturing are all impacting manufacturing positively. These technologies are driving complex solutions. Innovation begins with understanding needs of the marketplace. Design thinking…
