DC DRIVE TECHNOLOGY: DYNAMIC, RUGGED AND COST-EFFECTIVE

Depending on the application, DC drives are frequently the most favorably-priced drive solution. They have many advantages when it comes to reliability, operator friendliness and operating characteristics. There are many good technical and economic reasons for using DC drives, such as:

Favorably-priced four quadrant operation

Continuous operation at a low speed

Full torque even at low speeds

High starting torque

Wide speed control range with constant power

Low space requirement and low weight
