You control a lot of things about your operations — costs, labor, production — but it’s a lot harder to control your environment. Inside the plant, it can be dusty and hot, or cold and wet, while outside there’s salt-laden air, ice storms, chemical impurities or the sun’s unrelenting heat to contend with.
For your drives, these conditions can be particularly challenging. Drives contain electrical elements that are susceptible to extreme temperatures, moisture and air contaminants. They require specific operating conditions to perform reliably.
Attendees will learn how to deal with those abrasive and corrosive environments for the best drive operation.
