The new intelligent generation of industrial automation
From sensing devices and soft starters to I/O modules and variable frequency drives (VFDs), automation has become so ubiquitous that it can sometimes feel like one big amalgamation of commoditized elements.
This has become especially true with VFDs and soft starters—products whose primary purpose is to spin the motor. But, besides the core function, these products now come with intelligence built into them to do more than just control the speed.
This white paper investigates how a VFD or even a soft starter can be used to take over and run a basic machine.
