Frequency converters

PitON frequency converter (FC) – used to control the speed and torque of an asynchronous motor. An induction motor (IM), in turn, can drive mechanisms such as a fan, pump or conveyor.
Other designations of frequency converters: frequency drive (FC), AC drive, variable frequency drive (VFD), inverters, etc.
Frequency converters allow high-quality control of the technological process, reduce energy costs, increase reliability and save equipment life.

About 60% of electrical energy in industry is consumed by asynchronous electric motors with a squirrel-cage rotor. Less than 20% of them are equipped with an inverter.

Frequency converters are used in almost all industries:

  • HVAC (HVAC – Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning):
  • Condenser unit fans
  • Refrigeration compressor
  • Refrigeration compressor
  • Supply and exhaust fans, etc.

  • Water supply, water treatment, sanitation (W&WW)

  • Water intake and lift pumps

  • Distribution and transfer pumps, dosing

  • Sludge pumps and submersible pumps

  • Metallurgy

  • Cranes

  • Rolling mills (drives of main stands and auxiliary equipment)
    smoke exhausters

  • Compressors, etc.
