Regulation of drives by means of frequency converters is not technically new. However, their mass expansion is undoubtedly a matter of the relatively recent past. Frequency drives are generally becoming widely used not only in various areas of industry, but also in common home applications. At the same time, in line with technical developments, frequency drives are becoming increasingly sophisticated devices with a major impact on the overall economy of drives.
Frequency drives to increase efficiency
Today, the pressure to increase efficiency affects not only every industry, but also the environment with household appliances and other devices powered by electric motors. Already today, electric motors must be much more efficient than in the past, to which, of course, the manufacturers themselves had to adapt. However, the desire for efficiency and economy can also be achieved with a frequency drive. After all, why pay for energy more than necessary?
Until recently, industrial as well as conventional frequency drives were a relatively expensive affair, and such a large investment had to be well thought out. With the expansion of production programs, but also technical possibilities, the price of frequency drives began to gradually decrease and today it is no longer a problem to choose a universal frequency drive for prices around 100 or 200 euros. Availability has simply been improved, and with it the economy of the drive controlled by the frequency drive.
Better economy by tens of percent
Drives controlled by a frequency drive bring savings of total savings of up to 30-40%, while often the cost savings are even higher. Your investment in a frequency dirve will pay for itself relatively quickly, in most cases within 1-2 years. When estimating the savings thanks to the frequency drive, one must not forget the fact that they contribute to the saving of electric motor components and thus prolong its life. The overall economy of a regulated drive thus lies not only in a direct reduction of operating costs but also in a reduced need for possible service or purchase of a new electric motor.
