Variable speed drives – VL
Drive efficiency is 25% higher
than the reference value
for the IE1 class.
Variable speed drives play a key role in energy management as they provide an extremely efficient way of controlling electric motors. They:
- eliminate start-up current peaks
- minimise reactive power due to phase variation between voltage and current
- control motor speed.
The drive efficiency is 25% higher than the reference value for the IE1 class.
Integration with SYNERGY
All the families of variable speed drives in the LOVATO Electric catalogue have an integrated RS485 communication port with Modbus-RTU protocol for direct interfacing with SYNERGY.
SYNERGY can be used to monitor quantities like:
- motor speed
- motor drive frequency
- alarm states.
