Variable Speed Drive (VSD)

Variable Speed Drive (VSD)

Variable Speed Drive Australia

Motors are important and useful for several applications and are used in the manufacturing process for a large number of new products. While some motors are useful if operated at a constant speed, others require a variable-speed drive, which means the settings can be adjusted to suit your needs.

A variable-speed drive (VSD) has the capability to regulate the speed and rotational force of an electrical motor. This improves productivity while saving energy. VSD drive can either be an AC drive or a DC drive, but the variable-frequency drive (VFD) is exclusively an AC drive. At Addy Addy, you are sure to find the variable-speed drive you are looking for. We stock a wide range and several popular brands including DELIXI Electric.

Common Applications for VSD

There are many different types of variable-speed drives used in Australia. If the speed can be selected from several preset ranges, it is said to be an adjustable-speed drive while those that allow a change in speed without steps over a range is variable-speed drives. It can be mechanical, electromechanical, hydraulic or electronic.

A variable-speed drive is useful in various fields, such as:

  • Control duplex pumps
  • Swimming pool filtration system
  • Booster pumps
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Compressor in oil and gas industry
  • Refrigeration
  • Variable air volume system
  • Fans

Benefits of Buying VSD:

Considering the fact that 25% of the world's electrical energy is consumed by electric motors for several industrial applications, selecting a VSD from Addy Addy will give you access to a wide array of benefits.

Addy Addy stocks a wide range of variable-speed drives in Australia that can be precisely tuned to achieve maximum output. Not only that, but the motor is more energy efficient since it tends to utilise less power and operate at a lower speed, which also reduces maintenance costs, increases the lifespan of the equipment and reduces downtime.
