AC Inverter Controls for Variable Speed Applications

AC Inverters (VFDs)
Gearmotors & Controls

Inverter drives (variable frequency drives) allow AC inverter-duty gearmotors to run at variable speeds. The DC voltage is “chopped” to simulate a sine wave that is then sent to the motor. Varying the output voltage and frequency of the control changes the speed of the motor...
