What is an Inverter Drive and how do they work?
An inverter drive is an electrical device which controls the speed or torque of an electric motor. They can also be known as Variable Frequency Drives (VFD's), AC drives, Variable Speed Drives (VSD's), or frequency converters. They sit between the motor and the electrical supply and regulate the power which is sent to the motor. They are highly beneficial for energy saving as you can adjust the speed of the motor by gradually increasing or decreasing the power which is fed to it through the drive, ensuring better energy efficiency. For example, instead of applying full power to a motor during start-up, it can be supplied gradually.
You'll find popular series from Eaton's offer here at RS such as the PowerXL DA1, DE1, DC1, and DG1 drives.
