Choosing the Right Electric Drive
When buying an electric drive, it’s important to consider the following:
- What are your power / HP needs?
- What are your voltage needs?
- What kind of enclosure do you need—standard or NEMA 12?
- What application will the drive be used for?
Brehob can help you answer these questions. Just give us a call at 317-671-8546 or fill out the contact form on this page.

What is an Electric Drive?
An electrical drive controls the electrical energy (including speed and motion) sent to an electrical motor, allowing for precise operation and accuracy. Electric drives can be classified or labeled in a variety of ways, by speed, supply, control, or number of motors. Here are a few terms you might see when searching for drives:
- Constant / single speed: Drives for applications that require a constant, fixed speed.
- Variable speed: A variable speed drive can refer to either an AC or DC drive that varies the speed of a motor by adjusting the voltage. These often offer energy savings over fixed speed drives, depending on the application.
- Single motor: Drives that control one individual motor
- Multi motor: Drives that control multiple electric motors
- Constant torque: Drives often used with conveyors or compressors, where load torque remains constant.
- Variable torque: Drives often used with fans, blowers, or pumps, where torque needs vary based on the load.
- Variable frequency drives: Also known as AC drives or adjustable speed drives, VFDs convert fixed incoming voltage and frequency into variable voltage and frequency, allowing you to adjust depending on need.
