Original Press Release
VFD and VSD Compared to Intelligent Motor Controllers with Variable VOLTAGE Drive (VVD) Capabilities as Provided by Owl Energy Technologies
Press release date: Feb 06, 2014
Variable Frequency Drives (VFD)
• Ideal when speed control is required
• Soft starter capability
• Proven Technology
Intelligent motor controllers with Variable Voltage Drive capabilities
• Ideal when load control is required; matching actual load and motor output
• Start-up spike reduction, soft start and soft-stop capability AND Energy Optimization
• Can be applied to motors without regard to their age or insulation class
• Perfect for retrofit,
• Significantly reduces the motor heat and as a result, increases the life of the motor
• Proven technology in use in thousands of installations worldwide
• An example: A water pump:
• Load is constant;
• Amount of water pumped per minute needs to change as well empties;
• VFD changes speed of motor to pump more or less water
An example: An escalator
• Load Varies
• For an escalator at start-up, the motor is moving the steps up or down.
• If the motor is 50 amps and 220 volts, only 30 amps may be needed.
• With our Intelligent motor controller installed, the reduced amperage is easily measured..
• Your motor today cannot adjust to this.
• When people start using the escalator, the load is obviously increased;
• Our Intelligent motor controller will provide the adjusted power, volts times amps, needed.
• Again, with our Intelligent motor controller installed, the amperage change is easily measured.
