Why You should take this training program
In this variable frequency drive (VFD) training, participants learn proper design recommendations to ensure that your equipment is as energy efficient and safe as possible. Discover the best practices for frequency drives in HVAC, pumping, and facility applications. Whether you’re in facility maintenance, chilled water systems, waste water systems, or manufacturing, our variable frequency drive basics training program unlocks the secrets of VFDs to maintain your equipment.
In the hands-on lab portion you will use scopemeters to see how improper designs can lead to motor deterioration and other problems. You will program and troubleshoot newly upgraded equipment that includes Allen-Bradley Powerflex4 and ABB ACS-350 variable frequency flux vector drives. Learn to manipulate external drive control wiring. Gain troubleshooting skills by deciphering fault diagnostics and correcting problems.
