Benefits of Variable Speed Drives

  • 27th June 2016

GES Group recommend, supply, and install a wide range of Variable Speed Drives (VSDs), and other automation components. We stock a wide variety of Drives, of various IP ratings, and can provide technical and expert support, advice and guidance for all of your energy needs.

Maximise Energy Savings

AC motor-driven applications can be controlled with a Variable Speed Drive (VSD) to reduce costs. A 10% speed reduction in a variable torque application can result in a 30% energy saving e.g. centrifugal pumps and fans. Achieve greater reductions in energy consumption with VSDs than with any other speed control technique.

Accurate Process Control

VSDs can be programmed to run a motor at a precise speed, to stop at a precise position, or to apply a specific amount of torque.

Extend Equipment Lifespan and Reduce Maintenance

VSDs gradually ramp-up the motor to operating speed, lessening mechanical and electrical stress, reducing maintenance and repair costs, and extending the life of the motor and the driven equipment.

Elimination of Mechanical Drive Components

VSDs can eliminate the need for expensive mechanical drive components like gearboxes, and eliminate additional equipment costs and maintenance costs, while reducing floor-space requirements.
