Inverters, or variable speed/frequency drives, are used for running AC motors and providing variable speed. They are versatile devices that can be used in a wide range of applications, from simply running a motor and allowing a user to vary the speed, to complicated set-ups with sensors and timers that affect the speed.
Typically Inverters have been designed for fan & pump (light duty) applications or normal/heavy duty. Many are dual rated, with one set of ratings for both light and heavy duty.
As such you simply need to choose the unit that has a current rating at least as much as your motor.



1. Simple circuit & small size.
2. Low cost.

4. Used for more than one motor with different data.
5. Provide motors protection.

a. Overload protection.
b. Over current protection.
c. Over &under voltage protection.
d. Phase failure protection.
e. Over temperature.

6. Control in output voltage.
7. Control in acceleration& deceleration time.
