Upcoming Webcast: "Integrated Drive Systems Ensures Reliability for Your Application"
Electric motor systems with variable frequency drives (VFDs) are becoming more common in large industrial systems because VFDs provide higher system efficiency, greater operational flexibility and improved reliability with reduced carbon footprint. When the requirements and functionality of the drive system are well-defined, component design can be optimized to achieve the highest reliability and lowest cost of ownership.

Presenters Dave Hernandez and Sumit Singhal will help you understand how to optimize drive train systems for improved reliability.
