How To Understand Variable and Constant Torque Applications

Hi Adam Ring with Innovative IDM. Now a lot of people often wonder what’s the difference between constant torque and variable torque applications in relationship with variable frequency drives. Well it’s really simple, if you think about as the speed varies for a given application if the torque remains the same, regardless of the speed then that’s considered a constant torque. An example of that might be a conveyor.
