Ongoing innovations, added intelligence and networking let motors and drives serve in unusual applications and replace obsolete equipment

Enhance Your Motors’ Efficiency

(Article)

Many processors look to variable speed drives for saving energy with motors. A variety of other measures can also afford savings. These include use of soft starts and timers as well as more attention to motor sizing and selection.

Drive up energy efficiency

(Article)

The constant-speed approach to AC motors made a lot of sense when energy was cheap and drives technology was in its infancy. With their latest advances, adjustable speed drives can provide one of the best energy efficiency options for a plant.

Ethanol Plant Stops Motor Bearing Damage

(Article)

Something was destroying the motor bearings of the centrifuges and thermal oxidizer at a North Dakota ethanol plant. It turned out that stray voltages on the cabinets of variable speed drives were the culprit. Proper shaft grounding solved the problem.

Choosing motor controls and drives

(Article)

In any industrial control application, using the right drives and motor controls can make or break the project, and also can make a huge difference in how well those applications perform.
