Category Description

<p>Find and buy variable speed drives from verified suppliers on IndustrySearch. A variable speed drive (VSD) is a device that controls the speed, acceleration and general operation of an electric motor.</p> <p>Things to consider when buying variable speed drives:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Size your VSD</strong> - Your VSD should meet the motor&rsquo;s voltage and horsepower rating, as well as maximum motor current at peak demand, to ensure reliable and long lasting operation.</li> <li><strong>Select constant or variable torque drive</strong> - For centrifugal applications such as a fan, a variable torque drive is more appropriate and energy efficient. For applications that require a constant level of torque at all speeds such as a conveyor, a constant torque drive can be used.</li> <li><strong>Choose your VSD&rsquo;s capabilities</strong> - Choose a VSD that meets your application&rsquo;s requirements, from a wide range of control options such as speed control, forward &amp; reverse operation, soft start, ramp up, ramp down operation, overload rating and vector torque control.</li> <li><strong>Consider specialized application requirements</strong> - Specialized requirements include IP rating, auxiliary motor cooling for low speed motor operation, remote operation monitoring, braking chopper modules, harmonic mitigation for equipment protection, and more.</li> </ul> <p><br />Contact our vendors for a free quote or expert advice on variable speed drives.
