VFD Selector App:



Baldor invites you to download the new Variable Frequency Drive Selector app. This easy to use app will select the appropriate Baldor VS1 or ACB drive for your application.

The app uses the electrical motor's full load amperes (amps), the source voltage and a few required attributes such as enclosure type and overload capability to select the appropriate drive.

If you do not know the full load amps of the motor, just enter a catalog number and the app will provide the motor's full load amperes at the operating voltage you specify. Or enter the partial catalog number and the app will provide a list of similar catalog numbers to choose from. The results are displayed on screen and can be emailed as a PDF document.
