WEG Drives

03/14/2012 2:00 PM

When did WEG started designing and building adjustable speed drives?

I know that WEG motors have been around since the 1960's but what about their VFD's? I find nothing on their site on this.

Weg started offerring VFDs about 10 years ago in Brazil but they were not UL listed for a long time so we didn't see them here in the US.

They are junk. I tried using them twice because the price was good and I assumed the first problem was a fluke. it wasn't.

Thanks! Is there any reference on this?

Guys,

I was talking about references on the WEG site of when they started making drives, not technical information.

I am considering Danfoss drive since they are the only ones i have found with enclosure rating nema 4X that does not require AC units for output ratings of 60 HP.

Any thoughts?

1981 Weg Acionamentos established (acionamentos = drives)

those were drives with SCRs, not IGBTs.
