Variable frequency drives (VFD) are becoming more common place and more widely used in applications. They are capable of varying the speed of a motor without the need for mechanical pulleys, thus reducing the number of mechanical components and overall maintenance. But the biggest advantage that a VFD has is the ability to save the user money through its inherit nature to save energy by consuming only the power that’s needed.
Mitsubishi Electric Variable Frequency Drives are a great tool to save energy in Pumping, Compressing, Cooling, HVAC, and Fan applications. Utilizing the latest technologies, the FR-F800 drive is essential in variable torque applications. Signals sent via the enclosure (relay panel, etc.) such as input magnetic contactor signals, watt hour meter signals, and sensor signals can be read directly into the inverter and controlled. A fan can be controlled in accordance with the conditions without using relays, etc. Furthermore, by using an external 24 VDC power source for the control power supply, input machine signals can be turned ON and OFF regardless of whether there is an input power source.
Offered in sizes from 1/8HP to 1800HP, Large HP Drives can be shipped out of the Chicago factory within 1 week as they are stocking all of the necessary items to build them.
