Selecting the Right Motor Supply Cable

POSTED: 05/08/2015

Selecting any cable involves getting the right performance without overspecifying—and overpaying—for what you don’t need. For powering motors, the choice ranges from PVC/nylon-insulated wires in a conduit to precision VFD cables. The most obvious requirement is a cable that meets the power-handling requirements of the motor over the distances between

How to Pick the Right VFD Cable

POSTED: 05/08/2015

Variable-frequency drives (VFD) allow sophisticated control by AC motors by allowing their speed and torque to be precisely adjusted. Control is achieved by varying the frequency to the motor. It does not, however, send a pure sine-wave frequency to the motor. Rather it sends a series of pulses, whose width
