Drives: Unique Benefits

Because of its low life-cycle costs and very robust operating system, the Secondary Resisitive Controller is generally a more cost-effective solution than a VFD. The unique benefits of WRIM-SRC over variable frequency drives include:

  • Maintainable by end user / low maintenance
  • Very high reliability
  • Engineered system for optimum system performance
  • High efficiency, with minimal speed control
  • Robust, no electronics
  • Simple load sharing between multiple motors
  • Lower motor heating and frequent motor starting
  • Breakdown torque available without over-sizing
  • 20+ year operation life
  • No obsolescence of technology
  • No harmonic content

Also, SRC is a better solution in remote areas, because there is no need to have engineers monitoring the system as is required by VFD drives.
