Motor control and protection solutions are responsible for more than just efficient machine performance. They impact entire processes, productivity, and operational costs. Because of this, machine builders need to thoroughly design motor control and protection solutions for each application and functionality. The high energy consumption of motors leaves space for efficiency improvements, which is easily achievable with the right motor control. Machine availability is another area that can be enhanced by fine-tuning motor performance. Also, the right component configuration helps mitigate the risk of downtime and improves process continuity. This e-guide will walk through design considerations for maximizing machine performance.
