Acceleration ramps

In acceleration ramps, the frequency inverter is widely used in this type of function, being one of its greatest advantages. When an electric motor is energized, it usually starts from inertia to its maximum capacity in a few seconds. This is detrimental to the engine components as this sudden start may cause belt and gear deterioration to deteriorate between damage to other parts. This way the maintenance humerus is longer, and the engine life is shorter. The acceleration ramp is used to resolve this problem.

By setting up a frequency inverter to act as an acceleration ramp it can cause the time the motor will go out of inertia and reach its maximum capacity without “strides.” This type of configuration raises the life of the engine and its components, as well as reducing maintenance and spare parts costs. As there are acceleration ramps, there is the deceleration ramp, which consists of smooth stopping of the engine, in order to avoid sudden braking. It is very simple to configure the acceleration ramps in inverters, because by default, the inverters leave the factory with the acceleration ramp set for 5 seconds, but it is possible to adjust this value from 0.1 second to 245 seconds.
