Product Review by Dominic Porte

Along with great pricing on VFD drives I thought I would give you some insight and facts about what a VFD drive is and how it can help reduce energy costs in your building. VFD drives have been utilized in the automation industry for quite a number of years and are now becoming more popular in the HVAC industry. VFD drives are an excellent low cost way to rapidly reduce your electricity demand on motors, pumps and compressors. If you have any questions about VFD drives please feel free to call me (1-877-482-2236) and I would be glad to answer any questions you have.

VFD or (Variable Frequency Drive)
You can divide the world of variable frequency drives into two categories: AC and DC. A variable frequency drive controls the speed, torque, direction and resulting horsepower of a motor. A DC drive typically controls a shunt wound DC motor, which has separate armature and field circuits. AC drives control AC induction motors, and-like their DC counterparts-control speed, torque, and horsepower.
