Operating an industrial motor at constant speed wastes a good bit of energy.  Why?  These motors are designed to exert a great amount of energy by operating at a very high capacity unless an outside force is used to control the speed of the motor.  Variable speed drives do just that.  These drives control the motor’s speed so that it only uses the energy necessary for each task throughout operation.  If a slower speed is needed, then the variable speed drive can be used to safely and efficiently slow the speed of the motor.  This saves energy and helps preserve the life of the motor and machinery that it is operating.

AC Drives are used to control AC motors, while DC Drives control DC motors.  Carotron offers both – we manufacture our own DC Drives such as the Elite Pro and also offer AC Drives that are manufactured by a number of companies, such as KB Electronics.  No matter what your industrial motor control needs, we can help.  Call today!  1-888-286-8614

Elite Pro DC DrivesIf your facility’s older DC motors are still running like the workhorses they’re known to be, then why replace the motors with new costly AC motors simply because of sales pressure? 

Your DC motor might simply need a new DC drive to help it continue to run efficiently while the motor is still working just as good as ever!  Carotron can help you with your DC drive replacement and even retrofit drives to fit your application.  We don’t try to just sell you the latest product… we try to find the right “fit” or “retrofit” to meet your needs at the most affordable price.

If you don’t need a new motor – and a DC drive will do just fine – then that’s what we offer!  We also offer AC drives and motors if it’s determined to be the sensible option for your application.  Check our DC drives page and see for yourself why Carotron has been one of the TOP DC DRIVES manufacturers in the industry since 1984!
