Case Study - Jaguar Drives make a splash with energy saving swimming pools, at Thistle Hotels.
Motor speed control offers industry the single largest opportunity for saving energy and money.

Most motors run at a fixed speed, by adjusting the speed to more accurately match the requirements of the loads, which generally vary over time, you can enhance the efficiency of the motor drive equipment. The potential benefits of speed variation include increased productivity and product quality, less wear and mechanical stress, along with energy savings of 50% or more for some types of applications.

One of the most effective ways to save energy is to target pump and fan applications, firstly because there are so many of them and secondly because the potential energy savings are so great. ...Click here to read more.
