Schneider Electric offers a wide range offer of fully tested and ready-to-connect motor control solutions including Variable speed drive and soft starters. Starting from compact, pre-engineered systems up to custom-engineered complex solutions. These solutions are developed to the highest quality level; manufactured according to your needs to fit a wide range of applications and fit all market segments. A variable speed drive is an automation component that controls and regulates the speed and rotational force, or torque output, of an electric motor. Variable speed drives change the way mechanical movement-oriented processes such as packaging, material handling, material working and hoisting are managed. Control of mechanical movements relies heavily on drive technologies with the ability to start and stop motors rapidly, with sufficient fluxing and motor current, and with the ability to repeat tasks during a given process. Precise control of mechanical movements utilising variable speed drives helps to increase efficiency, connectivity, repeatability and maintenance.
