Schneider Electric: Variable speed drives
Schneider Electric’s Altivar™ 212 variable speed drive and the S-Flex enclosed version are designed to provide OEMs and control panel builders with energy efficient and economical solutions for pump and fan applications.
The new AC drives adjust motor speed to the required flow of air or fluids, reducing energy costs by 50%. Engineered to provide additional cost savings, both the Alivar 212 and S-Flex feature electronic motor controls that reduce the mechanical stress on belts, piping and ductwork and eliminate valve or inlet guide vane maintenance. By eliminating the need for throttling valves, dampers or inlet guide vanes the drives also lower installation costs and maximize building occupant comfort with accurate flow control.
