Benefits of PE VFDs

Power Electronics started designing variable frequency drives and A.C. soft-starts specifically for crane in Chicago, Illinois in 1969. For more than 50 years, they’ve maintained the highest product quality and reliability standards that were set by their founder, Victor J. Habisohn. The reasons PE variable frequency drives are preferred for overhead crane and hoisting equipment include:  

  • Engineered, Designed & Manufactured in the U.S.A.
  • Specifically engineered for Crane & Hoist use.
  • Not a modified “generic” product designed for another application.
  • High reliability circuitry not requiring extra parts or cards to “make it work”.
  • Upgrade-Path Philosophy (sm) – Drives are upward compatible with newer units in both software familiarity (Gang-Set®) and physical sizing – including Multi-Vector®.
