Drives are electromechanical systems that employ an electric motor as the prime mover in a system to control the motion and processes of various machines. The primary function of a drive is to provide the precise amount of electric energy to a motor so that its speed matches exactly what is required by its process.

Drives are most commonly referred to as as variable speed drives, adjustable speed drives, variable frequency drives and adjustable frequency drives. No matter which term is used, the drive’s primary task is to control the speed of an electric motor.

AC and DC Drives are available in a wide variety of frame sizes, with different horsepower ratings to cover any industrial process, large or small.
