Automation controls are valuable in a production environment because it saves energy consumption, prolongs the life of equipment & allows the end user to control output. Types of equipment that we sell & support include:
- Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) control motor speed & torque by varying frequency & voltage.
- Soft Starters temporarily reduces the load and torque in the power train and electric current surge during start-up, also reducing energy consumption. This reduces mechanical stress on the motor and the electrodynamic stresses on the cabling & network, therefore increasing the life of the system.

Pump Specific Automation: Running pump systems at peak efficiency levels can save on energy costs, reduce wear and ensure reliability.
- WEG Pump Genius: can be used in Simple (single pump motor) or Multiplex (multiple motors) settings. This allows you to monitor system pressure and flow and maintains it at control setpoints.
