Variable Speed Drives for Industrial Applications
Variable Speed Drives (VSD),
Adjustable Speed Drives (ASD)
Voith variable speed drives operate on the principle of hydrodynamic power transmission. They control the speed of the driven machine in drives with electric motor or combustion engine. The driven machine always runs at the optimum speed for the process. This technology is energy efficient and environmentally-friendly thanks to lower CO2 emissions.
Our product portfolio includes:
- Vorecon variable speed planetary gears
- Geared variable speed couplings
- Variable speed fluid couplings
- Hydrodynamic torque converters
The Voith variable speed drives transmit power through moving fluid. They operate very reliably without power electronics that are prone to interference. The transmittable power ranges from 100 kW up to over 65 MW.
The Next Generation VoreconNX
The VoreconNX is the latest development in hydrodynamic power transmission in combination with a planetary gear, designed to control your driven machine in the most efficient and reliable way.
