A single plant trip or failure can lead to significant production losses, especially in industries operating in hazardous areas. Monitoring is essential to minimize any risk of unprecedented shutdowns, and most installations use smart wireless sensors.

However, taking such steps for motors operating in hazardous environments has been challenging due to the lack of cost-efficient and easy-to-implement solutions. These areas have flammable gases or vapor which needs special precautions to prevent explosions. Luckily, ABB has invented smart sensors that can help monitor motors in such environments.

Connecting Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) to a 3 Phase Motor

Jan 11, 2021 9:00:00 AM

Topic: motors sarasota motor and control expert expert on motors and controls motor and control expert sarasota VFD

Variable frequency drives (VFDs) are one of the most efficient methods of controlling motors that are designed to operate at a single speed. Depending on the VFD and how it is installed, a VFD operates on single or 3 phase input, and the output matches the desired voltage. Because the motors are typically designed with a single operating speed, the VFD is required to alter the speed of the motor.

Topic: motors sarasota expert on motor and controls motor and control expert expert on motors and controls motor and control expert sarasota motor pump motors

The pumping industry was revolutionized with the creation of the vertical pump motor in the early 1920’s. This allowed for electric motors to be attached to the top of a pump, and the impacts were impressive. The installation process was simplified, and because it required fewer parts, was then less expensive. The efficiency of the pump motors increased by 30%, and because vertical pump motors are purpose specific, they are more durable and reliable than their horizontal counterparts. Vertical pump motors are generally classified by their shaft type, either hollow or solid.
