You can therefore use the most economical driver to accelerate high inertia loads. You can also use the most economical motor and starter.
Acceleration can be controlled at any rate, once the driver has reached full speed.
Allowing for stepless adjustment over a wide range.
Isolation is especially important when applications require load to be operated intermittently.
Especially in irregularly loaded equipment such as extruders, conveyors and crushers.
Limiting the torque is required to protect the driver and load.
By allowing driven equipment to often run at reduced speeds, the noise and wear on the equipment is reduced.
When operated at the design point.
The wear-free transmission of power means that it is incredibly reliable
Suitable for all environments no matter how harsh or how extreme the climate.
Simple (yet innovative) design, use of standard parts and no special tooling.
