Programming and Configuration of Motion & Drives
In modern production facilities with frequent product changes and small batch sizes, there are often numerous starts and stops of motors, pumps, generators, frequent tool changes, and self-regulating adjustments of machinery, material handling, and many other forms of automated processes that require a high degree of precision. This is where motion and drives come into play.
Motion and drives encompass our expertise in programming soft starters, variable frequency drives (VFDs), motion controllers, as well as servo drives and amplifiers.
If you need full digital control over position, speed, or torque (synchronous/asynchronous), a servo drive is often the right solution.
VFDs are used for motor protection and speed control. The variable speed ensures that a motor, pump, or compressor operates at just the speed required to perform the task, saving the industry significant amounts of CO2 in the form of reduced energy consumption. Electric motors in industry account for approximately 25% of the world’s total electricity consumption. By using VFDs, consumption can be dramatically reduced.
If you want to know more about how many kWh you can save by installing VFDs and how they can extend the lifespan of your motors, do not hesitate to contact our automation technicians who specialize in motion and drives.
At Ferrum, we specialize in the programming and integration of soft starters, VFDs, motion controllers, as well as servo drives and amplifiers from a range of leading brands, including Rockwell Automation, Siemens, and Omron.
