IMO variable speed drives

IMO variable speed drives are characterised by their compact body, simple operation, global compatibility, and an extensive range of model variations to choose from. The manufacturer has long been recognised as a world leader in variable speed drives, and their experience is evident in this wide range of products they offer today, many of which we’re proud to stock right here at LED Controls.

These include its flagship range of Jaguar AC drives, all known for their power, reliability and efficiency. We also supply the cost efficient SD1 and HD1 variable speed drives. The dual-rated HD1 offers three phase power (200V, 400V and 600V) all the way up to 110kW, while the SD1 provides an ultra low-cost solution for small AC motors.

IMO itself is a British company with over 40 years of history behind it. Over all its decades in operation it’s developed a solid reputation as an innovator, and still enjoys global renown for being the creator of the first ever compact AC inverter for motor speed control. Today, devices like these might also be referred to as an AC variable speed inverter drive, a variable frequency drive, a variable speed drive, a Micro Drive, or simply an AC Inverter.

With around 25% of the world’s electrical energy used by electrical motors in industrial applications, AC variable speed inverter drives like IMO’s serve an invaluable purpose in controlling AC motor speed and torque, primarily by varying motor input frequency and range. This optimises energy usage while minimising wear and tear, helping owners and operators to save on operating costs and their carbon footprint.
