VFD Control Panels

What Is a VFD Control Panel?

A VFD’s (variable frequency drives) function is to adjust speeds, directions, and power outputs of a motor, as required by the system the motor is connected to. This is done through a frequency conversions device. With a VFD panel, you can stop, start, speed up, or slow down the system that it is connected to, based on the system requirements. Implementing a variable frequency drive panel will not only boost the performance of your facility’s equipment and electrical system, but it will also increase energy efficiency, thereby decreasing overall power consumption and costs.

Reasons for Utilizing VFD Panels

Variable frequency drive panels are in demand for several reasons:

VFD panels find application in diverse industries including water supply, air compressors, central air conditioning, port machinery, machine tools, boilers, and food machinery, among others.

Additional Advantages of VFD’s Include:

  • They provide protection when a short circuit or overload occurs in the circuits or variable speed drives
  • The bypass feature to ensure the system continues operation in case of variable frequency drive failure
  • They ensure operator safety levels by reducing the shock hazard rate

Current Group’s Custom VFD Control Panels:

Current Group can design a VFD control system to suit your application. If you want better control and efficiency out of your process, consider installing a VFD to control the motors in your system. For instance, if your facility has machinery or equipment that is only used at certain times, or does not need to run at full speed, a VFD panel is ideal as it only uses power when needed.

FAQs About VFD Control Panels

STO in a VFD refers to a safety feature that ensures the motor stops generating torque when the drive is deactivated. This function enhances safety by preventing unintended movement.
Dynamic braking in a VFD involves utilizing the motor as a generator to convert kinetic energy into electrical energy. This energy is then dissipated as heat, effectively stopping or slowing down the motor quickly.
VFD efficiency is typically determined by dividing the output power by the input power. This calculation accounts for losses incurred during the conversion process, such as heat dissipation and other factors.
The choice between VFD and soft starters depends on the specific application requirements. VFDs provide speed control and energy savings, making them ideal for applications needing variable speed. On the other hand, soft starters are more suitable for applications where variable speed control is not necessary.
Maintenance of your VFD control panel should occur approximately every 6 months. This schedule ensures optimal operation and helps prevent any potential damage.
