Variable Frequency Drive (VFD)

Prodrive Technologies has developed a range of variable frequency drives in the 0.75 – 90 kW range for induction, permanent magnet, and synchronous reluctance motors. Standard modules are available. However, the modular design allows great flexibility. This minimizes NRE if you require modifications for your solution, e.g. in:

  • Power (higher than 90 kW)
  • Communication (various standards available)
  • Human machine interface (HMI)
  • Housing

Benefits:

  • Engineering support. You can depend on us to help you integrate the driver seamlessly into your design using mechanical, magnetic, and thermal simulation. Reliability is ensured!
  • Software changes. If you require changes to match your own system, we will deliver! Additionally, various communication standards are available
  • Housing customization. We can manufacture housings in your preferred form factor, from a simple requirement up to IP69K, with your brand name on it
  • Displays. From simple LED indication to graphical displays
