Many industries rely on frequency converters. Whether you work in air travel, research labs, or manufacturing plants, you may need converters to maintain stable electrical frequencies. However, trying to decide what size frequency converter you need requires a bit more thought, so we’re here to help you narrow it down.
Shaft Output Power
If you’re using motorized equipment, you can select a converter using the shaft output power from the motor. Running a frequency converter enables a consistent flow where the converter acts as the input power and the motor works as an output. While sometimes the continuous output numbers can fluctuate and be difficult to pinpoint, you want to choose a frequency converter capable of handling more than the maximum output.
Apparent power is an easier way to decide what size frequency converter you need because we measure it in volt-amps, and it focuses more on standard electrical power. You want to choose a frequency converter that can handle at least double the full load amps of your motor. Checking the horsepower and maximum amp-load that a model can handle is one of the questions to ask when buying a rotary frequency converter. Rotary models are ideal for high-power industrial settings over more electronic devices but may require more maintenance over their life span.
Standard Series Motor
The standard series motor, sometimes known as the asynchronous or induction motor, can help determine the ideal frequency converter size for you. You can measure the electric current via electromagnetic induction in the motor’s rotor. However, you must take precise measurements when using this method because the streamlined economic currents may not always operate at full capacity. If you base your size choice on improper data, you may wind up with something smaller than you need.
The main things to consider when choosing a frequency converter size are the maximum current, power, and standard motor size. Selecting a frequency converter that can safely handle double the expected output will leave you in an advantageous position.
