Speed Controllers for Motors
There are a lot of factors to consider when buying an electric motor for commercial purposes. One of the most important factors of all is the presence and type of an electronic motor speed control. An electronic speed controller can effectively control the speed of an electric motor. This means that it can increase the speed from 0% to 100% with total control.
What device controls motor speed
The device that controls the speed of a motor is called an electronic speed controller. There are several different kinds of electronic speed controllers. The type of controller depends on the type of motor you’re using.
For example, there’s a PWM DC Motor Speed Controller Switch, Adjustable DC Motor Speed PWM Controller, 80W DC Motor Speed Controller, and more.
Just as there are DC motors and AC motors, there are DC and AC electronic speed controllers. DC motor speed control and AC motor speed control are of equal importance, it all depends on what kind of motor you need for your intended application.
Which motor is best for speed control?
To determine the best device for speed control, you will need to speak with one of Telco’s knowledgeable representatives. To find the best controller for your needs, you must discuss and communicate those needs so that we can help point you in the right direction.
How does a motor speed controller work?
A speed controller works by regulating the speed of an electric motor using certain operational principles. Regardless of type, electronic speed controllers designed for motors use a large amount of tiny high-speed switches.
The switches manipulate the speed by causing the voltage to go either up or down. By regulating the voltage at high speeds the controller can essentially control the speed of the motor.
What are the two types of speed controllers?
You should know that while there are many different varieties of electronic speed controllers, it all breaks down into two major types. The two major types of electronic speed controllers that you should keep in mind are brushed and brushless.
Although brushed and brushless speed controllers have certain differences that make them distinct, they function off of the same principles for the most part.
Is motor speed controlled by voltage?
The speed of a motor can be influenced by the voltage. That said, you have to be careful in this respect. The speed of DC motors can be controlled by manipulating the voltage. AC motors, however, are different. When you try to control the speed of an AC motor by adjusting the voltage you can damage the motor.
