Variable Speed Drive
Eaton VSD Pump Solution provides up to 70 percent energy savings in industrial machinery.
Eaton released a variable speed drive (VSD) pump solution that can provide up to 70 percent energy savings for equipment in the machine building, manufacturing, oil and gas and marine industries, depending on the machine duty cycle, the company says. Available in open- or closed-loop motion control configurations, the system can include one or more pumps paired with an Eaton Variable Speed drive, such as the PowerXL DG1 general purpose drive or SPX 9000 high performance drive. Beyond reducing energy consumption, running pumps at a variable speed also reduces noise pollution and increases equipment efficiency, allowing oil coolers to be downsized. Eaton’s VSD solution also helps machine owners meet Energy related Products (ErP) directive 2009/125/EC.
