Safety and efficency for motors

Saving energy in open-loop asynchronous motors is a simple way to optimize with a frequency converter (VFD). If the motor is not constantly operated at full load, it is possible to reduce the voltage while maintaining the speed and saving energy. This option is simple to parameterize with our drives and saves users money.

Defining safety in your motion application is critical. What safety features are there, what is their purpose, and how do you define safe. All these topics and the current regulations to use are discussed in this knowledge article.
