A VFD will control the speed of a three phase motor. The VFD also allows for controlled acceleration and deceleration of the motor. At start up a motor controlled by a VFD uses a low frequency and smaller amounts of voltage to increase the speed gradually. The VFD will allow for a connection to a process variable that can automatically change the speed of the motor based on temperature, pressure, flow, distance or many other variables.
Lewis Motor Repair stocks variable frequency drives in 240 volt – single phase, 240 – 3 phase, and 480 volt – 3 phase to cover many different types of application demands. Lewis Motor Repair has the expertise to recommend the right drive for the application, assist you with programming or preprogram for you. Our field service technicians can also assist you onsite if needed.
Soft starts are used with an electric motor to reduce the current and torque during the motors start-up. A soft start reduces the surge of current during start-up which reduces the mechanical stress on the motor and the equipment the motor is connected too. A Soft Start will also control the deceleration of the motor.
