Benefits of Variable Frequency Drives

Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs)

  • Easily changed acceleration/deceleration rates minimize "load swing".Improves the safety of moving large and heavy loads.
  • Provides precise positioning of loads.
  • Improved life for hoist, trolley and bridge brakes providing reduced maintenance costs.
  • Maintenance prone control contactors are eliminated reducing maintenance downtime.
  • Controlled acceleration/deceleration reduces building and structural loads by eliminating abrupt starting and stopping of cranes and hoists, while improving overall crane operation.
