About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of variable-speed drives (VSDs), which are solid-state regulators used primarily in electric AC motors, although they are also used in DC motors to a lesser extent. These products are designed to control the motor speed and torque of an electric AC or DC motor through the adjustment of voltage and motor input frequency. VSDs are used in a wide range of applications, including sewage and irrigation pumps, power plant fans, nonresidential and residential HVAC systems, manufacturing plants and other industrial operations. Because VSDs provide precision control over voltage and motor speed, buyers can gain significant energy savings with their use. Suppliers include manufacturers and wholesalers.
