Variable Frequency Drive Unit for Hoist

Variable Frequency Hoist Drive Unit


Variable frequency drives are an indispensible method for controlling travel speeds in multiple ways to include acceleration, deceleration, top speed, low speed, time between speeds, and more. The characteristics of a VFD virtually eliminate the impact generated by the contactors of old. This makes for a smooth system with little to no wear and tear associated with stopping and starting. In addition, the speeds can be programmed and reconfigured as often as the application or personnel using the equipment warrant. No longer are you a slave to gearboxes and contactors.

Lastly, by using a VFD as a means for slowing and stopping a load the brakes become parking brakes only. This eliminates the wear created when the brake is active to slowing the load.
