VFD Cables

Electric Motor Bearing Failure and Use of the Proper VFD Cable

What causes bearing failure to occur between the variable frequency drives (VFD) and electric motors?  What can be done to minimize the potential for failure? For starters, the ball bearing is the connection between the shaft and the motor frame.  There are two rings: an inner ring (which is in contact with the shaft) and […]

VFD Cables VS. Traditional Cables for Drive Applications

Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) cables have been around since the early 1990s in order to help minimize operational issues with VFD systems. The advancements in Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors and technology drives caused a significant increase in the high frequency information output from the drive inverters. That means that traditional power cables had issues handling […]
