Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs)

Contact us for more information about VFD’s and the energy savings they will provide your application.

Reltech Drives and Controls specializes in the sales, installation, commissioning, preventative maintenance, and servicing of Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs). These are sometimes also known as soft starts, inverters, or variable speed drives (VSDs). A VFD is an Adjustable Speed Drive (ASDs) used in electro-mechanical drive systems to control Alternating Current motor speed and torque by varying motor input frequency and voltage.

It is estimated that 18% of the energy used in electric motors could be saved by efficient energy improvement technologies such as VFDs. The net payback in energy savings that can be achieved in many applications is substantial.

VFD’s have numerous applications, including pumps, fans, make up air units, chillers, motors, ventilation systems, industrial drive systems and more.

Preventative Maintenance

Completing an annual cleaning is a crucial component of VFD preventative maintenance.

A VFD is often a critical piece of equipment in many different applications and having to replace one can be a large capital cost therefore PM is very important.

Completing an annual cleaning is a crucial component of VFD preventative maintenance. Having your VFD’s cleaned will ensure that the optimal operating range is maintained for the maximum amount of time. This results in longer VFD lifespans, a clean and healthy building, and prevents unnecessary down-time of critical equipment and costly repairs or replacement.

Preventative maintenance is imperative in keeping ambient temperatures inside the VFD at acceptable levels. Keeping the ambient temperatures at acceptable levels will maximise the life of your VFD. For every 10 degree Celsius increase in maximum operating temperature, VFD operational life span is reduced by 50%.
