Variable Frequency Drives
Saving cash and the planet.
As motors generally run for long periods of time over many years, the largest costs associated with motors are the energy costs to run them. Using a Variable Frequency Drive allows you to control the speed of AC induction motors so that they can operate more efficiently.
Using a Finesse Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) can dramatically reduce energy consumption - up to a 27% reduction in some cases.
By varying input power and frequency into the motor using a VFD, it can turn less frequently when under less load resulting in a reduction in power consumption.
Running a Finesse VFD with a 2.2kW motor at 80% speed, 12hrs a day, 300 days per year equates to a saving of £464* per year. (*assuming 12p per kWh) A truly plug and play solution
Our Variable Frequency Drives are available off the shelf in a range of sizes and capacities and simply plug between the mains power source (single or three phase) and the motor with no additional wiring required.
Our IP65 rated VFDs come fully enclosed with a simple 'plug and play' setup. VFDs can be tailored to your requirements with the addition of some optional features.
