Variable speed drive boosts energy efficiency

Variable speed drive boosts energy efficiency

WEG’s variable speed drive (VSD) will boost energy efficiency across a range of applications at this year’s SPS IPC Drives (Nuremberg, 2426 November, Stand 250, Hall 3).

Meeting the European market’s growing demand for inverters – in line with the requirements of the latest ErP Directive on energy efficiency – the CFW300 variable speed drive (VSD) offers an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for applications requiring low motor power, says the company. WEG believes it’s a fit for machinery such as small centrifugal pumps, mixers, extruders and fans.

“In line with our commitment to helping businesses across a broad range of industries improve energy efficiency, we have expanded our automation portfolio to become a full-spectrum manufacturer in the area of VSDs,” comments Klaus Sirrenberg, Director Low Voltage Products at WEG in Germany. “One of our key targets is achieving further growth across the European automation market and – with this in mind – we have strengthened our sales network and established a state-of-the-art European Automation Centre in Unna. We are also strengthening our switchgear cabinet offering and reinforcing the internal networking between our various business areas.”

In addition, the CFW500 VSD is in a larger frame size (E) for rated power 18.5 to 22 kW. The company is also unveiling IP55 rated devices to make its CFW701 VSDs suitable for industries such as food and beverage.
