1000V variable speed drive applications

1100v VSD & Soft Starter - suitable for 950v 1000v 1100v & 1140v

Variable speed drives (VSD) and soft starters have a whole range of potential uses within a variety of industries. An area where we have found there to be a lot of use of 1000V VSD or soft starter is in the mining sector.

The typical 1000V VSD application is to control the speed of a ventilation fan in some section of an underground mine or a constant pressure water pumping system or a de-watering pump (ie remove waste water from a mine). The last two could be underground or above ground.

A question that we commonly get asked by new customers is;

I see that you have 1100V variable speed drives. Are these suitable for a 1000V mine ventilation fan application?

The short answer to this is Yes. Our Zener MSC-3V series of variable speed drives is advertised as 1100V, however the detailed specification covers all of the common international voltages around 1000V, so the same equipment is fine for 950V, 1000V, 1050V, 1100V and 1140V systems.

So if you are looking for a variable speed drive for a mining based application why not check out our Zener MSC-3V and give us a call to discuss how we can help.
