AutomationDirect has added a new line of AC variable frequency (VFD) drives for motor speed control and other industrial control applications.

The WEG CFW300 variable frequency drive is a high-performance VFD for three-phase induction motors. It is ideal for applications on machines or equipment that require precise control with easy setup and operation. The CFW300 features a compact size with contactor-style electrical connections (top in / bottom out). The VFD's performance can be scaled to match the application by selecting WEG vector control (VVW) or scalar control (V/Hz).

The CFW300 includes a built-in keypad and SoftPLC with free WEG Programming Suite (WPS) software for custom tailored control schemes. The integrated WPS tool assists in the creation of automation applications, allowing graphical monitoring, parameter setting and programming in Ladder language (IEC 61131-3).

Built-in I/O capabilities include four configurable (PNP or NPN) digital inputs, one 0.5 A / 250 VAC relay output, and one 0-10 VDC / 4-20 mA analog input. A variety of plug-in option modules for additional I/O and communications protocols can be added to extend capabilities. A remote keypad and flash memory module are also available.

Starting at $138.00, sixteen units are available from 1/4 hp to 5 hp. Single-phase 100-127 VAC, and single or three-phase 200-240 VAC power supply options are available. WEG CFW300 series AC drives are cUL, CE approved and are backed by an 18-month warranty.

Having a workforce that’s well trained on current technologies and equipment is critical for any manufacturer. When workers lack necessary skill sets, they are more likely to make expensive mistakes that result in costly downtime. Without proper training, employees are also less productive and have lower job satisfaction. They often feel as though they aren’t moving forward in their career and get discouraged. In addition, the correlation between well-trained workers and a safer manufacturing environment shouldn’t be overlooked.

Clearly, the importance of industrial training must be a key consideration for employers. Unfortunately, developing a workforce with necessary knowledge isn’t always easy. A variety of factors are creating a serious skills gap, and many companies are struggling to find ways to address the challenges.
