Older processes ran on DC motors and drives because they offered the only option in terms of motor speed control. DC motors are simple to control and they also offer pinpoint accuracy with torque control in addition to high dynamic speed response.

However, there are many documented disadvantages to deploying DC motors. These include:

  • Reduction in reliability following wear and tear of brushes and commutators
  • Greater financial commitment
  • Need for encoders and tachometers
  • Complex mechanics requiring regular maintenance

AC technology is by far and away more efficient than DC technologies. The improved efficiency means a reduction in lower running costs and ultimately less frequent need for maintenance. For example, there won’t be any need to regularly replace brushes, filters or oil. You won’t need to have spare parts in stock at all times and there won’t be any need for commutator or wear checks.

Using AC variable speed control, your business will only use energy required by exact processes. Heat loss is reduced significantly. Motors and pumps will now be soft started and stopped and they can be slowed to a speed that can be controlled electronically. Add the space and noise savings and you can understand why process efficiency improves dramatically with AC motors and drives.

From our experience, spanning over 8 decades, we can categorically state that conversions from DC technology to AC technology can save you up to 30% in energy costs. Remember, the conversion does not only affect active motors but also the controlling variable speed drives.
