Drives and PLCs for compressors

Accurate speed control

The most effective way to maximize the flexibility and optimize the capacity of a compressor is to control the speed, and most efficient method to achieve the speed control is to use variable speed drive.

Compressors need to have accurate speed control and they need to start and stop without causing pressure peaks. This is needed to enable efficient processes, but also to prolong the lifetime of the compressor and compressed-air pipes.

Our low and medium voltage variable frequency drives include several functions that improve compressor control and reduce wear and tear in the process equipment. The wide motor offering has products for many applications and efficiency ratings. The PLCs and HMIs enable integration to larger systems and provides easy usability.

Main benefits of our offering

  • Minimizing mechanical stress to the process equipment
  • Minimizing pressure peaks to the equipment and pipes
  • Accurate gas pressure control
  • No need for external PID controller for pressure control
