Frequently Asked Questions

What Types of Motor Controls Does Livewire Supply?

1. Direct On/Off Motor Controls Also known as a Contactor
This is the simplest and most basic type of motor control. It involves directly turning the motor on and off using a switch or contactor. While it provides a straightforward control method, it lacks the ability to adjust motor speed or provide advanced motor protection.

2. Motor Starters
Motor starters are devices that provide a means of controlling the starting and stopping of electric motors. They typically incorporate thermal overload protection to safeguard the motor against excessive current and overheating. Motor starters can be manually operated or controlled automatically through control signals.

3. Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs)
VFDs, also known as adjustable speed drives or inverters, allow precise control over motor speed by varying the frequency and voltage supplied to the motor. They are commonly used in applications where speed control, energy efficiency, and smooth acceleration/deceleration are required.

4. Soft Starters
Soft starters are designed to gradually ramp up the voltage and current supplied to the motor during startup, reducing the mechanical stress and torque spikes associated with direct-on-line starting. Soft starters provide a smooth and controlled acceleration, which helps extend the motor’s lifespan and reduces equipment wear and tear.

5. Servo Drives
Servo drives are specialized motor control systems used in applications that require high-precision motion control. They work in conjunction with servo motors and employ feedback mechanisms to precisely control position, speed, and torque. Servo drives are commonly found in robotics, CNC machines, and automation systems.
