Both systems provide protection against circulating dust and high-water pressure for equipment such as mixers, pumps, conveyor equipment, fans, packaging machinery, machine tool equipment, and more. PowerFlex 40 gives users decentralized vector control for applications demanding low-speed and high-torque control, while ArmorStart allows users to mount the motor controller near the motor for plug-and-play design. Both systems are available in 240, 480, and 600 V for applications to 5 HP.
