Nearly 70 percent of all industrial electrical energy use goes to powering electric motors. These motors are the workhorses of business, from pumps moving fluids to fans moving air to compressors, conveyors, and every type of machine that depends on rotational force to get its job done.
And it’s these motors that are the key to help you reduce your energy use and CO2 emissions, or even find more energy efficient solutions for your customers. That’s why ABB developed a wide portfolio of low and medium voltage AC drives, as well as a portfolio of DC drives. Drives (variable speed drives or variable frequency drives) are designed to run your motors based on the your processes current demands rather than running them at full speed and reducing output using mechanical controls like throttles, dampers or gears.
