Drive Replacement

Why Replace with SPINDEL High Frequency Drives?

Since 1995, SPINDEL Electronics has been designing, manufacturing and supporting industrial variable speed AC motor drives, also called frequency converters. These drives offer high output frequencies required by fast spinning motors and includes special features not found in standard AC motor drives.

Key engineering personnel have been involved with high frequency and other special AC motor drives since 1986. Our American Made drives offer improvements such as better overall reliability of the drive and of the whole machine, lower motor losses (heat) resulting in longer bearing and winding life, short circuit protection on output,better control of the process (speed and load).

What Improvements Can I Expect?

We recommend replacing your old high frequency drive with one of our SPINDEL Electronics drives. Our American Made drives offer such upgrades as:

  • Increased reliability of the drive/machine

  • Better process control (speed and load)

  • lower motor losses (heat) resulting in longer bearing and winding life

  • short circuit protection on output, protecting the drive even with repeated shorts

SPINDEL Electronics takes into consideration dynamic performance, control interface, available space, environment, current harmonics and electrical noise issues, cost, and any other application specific requirement.

Most Popular Drive Brands/Models We Replace

Throughout our over 25 years of experience in manufacturing high frequency drives, we have come across many older brands that can no longer be repaired or are simply too outdated. Our expertise in engineering and understanding the demanding applications that utilize the high frequency drives allow us to ensure our customers receive the best replacement drive for their specific needs.

Engineering Competence

We are an engineering company with a core competence in industrial high performance microprocessor, DSP and GA based embedded control systems applied to power electronics converters in low voltage area (up to 1000 V). We focus on high frequency AC motor drives (also called frequency converters) for very high speed motors and drives for special motor applications, as well as on some other power electronics converter applications.

For more than 30 years we have seen generations of control/power electronics components and control algorithms being developed and used. We have experienced first hand the problems our customers face. We then use that experience in the design process of our own units, as well as in repair procedures and replacement decisions for drives still being used in many factories.

Drive Replacement Made Easy!

New replacement drives are factory programmed for your specific application. After consulting our replacement guides and choosing your SPINDEL series drive, we also offer connection diagrams and phone support to facilitate re-wiring and start-up.
