Chainveyor® offers a variety of control options. From component-level VFD’s to turn-key, fully automated systems we can provide the level of controls you require.

Variable Frequency Drives

Chainveyor® Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) are available for new and existing systems. The variable frequency drive utilizes a state of the art AC frequency controller with motor and gear reducer combination to provide maximum output speed range.

It offers these great advantages:

  • Easy speed change with push button control
  • Reduces maintenance by eliminating many of the mechanical drive parts such as variable pitch sheaves, V-Belts, and torque limiters. The VFD controller electronically controls speed and limits output torque to preprogrammed levels.
  • Broad speed range. Variable Frequency Drives allow speed ranges up to 20:1 (older technology mechanical variable pitch sheaves have a speed range of less than 2:1).
  • Improved Gearmotor Design. High efficient helical gear reducers with Inverter Duty TEFC motors all full torque rating at a broad range of speeds with less heat buildup than double worm gear reducers.
  • Full Function VFD controller. Variable Frequency Drives offer full function options such as soft starting, torque limiting and overload protection.
