SAF’s proficiency in DC drives was quickly transferred to AC drive know how when VFD’s became commercially available in the 1980’s. This background also enables our team to excel in replacing DC drives and motors with AC technology.
SAF specializes in obsolescence planning for your old AC drive equipment that allows transition to new technology with minimal disruptions. Today SAF’s AC drive offering ranges from low cost fractional hp drives to large hp drives suitable for motors over 1000 hp in size.
Our extensive experience with AC drives ranges from variable torque applications with fans and pumps to highly responsive and the most demanding constant torque industrial applications for precise speed, torque and tension control. This application knowledge coupled with SAF’s drive experience and unmatched support make SAF the best choice for your AC drive needs.
