Variable speed drives, the Ralspeed speciality, are becoming more and more important all over the world as the problems surrounding excessive energy usage become further apparent. Offering dramatic energy (as well as financial) benefits, these essential appliances are used from the smallest of applications to massive pieces of heavy machinery such as gas compressors and mine mill drives.

Although its most common name is a variable speed drive, the apparatus is also variously known as an adjustable speed drive, adjustable frequency drive, variable frequency drive and the informal term ‘AC’ drive. However named, the machines are used extensively across a variety of industries to accurately control both the torque and AC motor speed of any engine, reducing its energy usage while offering the added benefit of preserving its useful service life.

Variable speed drive technology has been steadily improving since Ralspeed was established in 1988 and we have continued to remain at the forefront of reliable supply and competitive price in the market. From humble beginnings offering only soft-starter units for sale, we now supply a diverse range of customers an equally diverse range of variable speed drives, soft starter units, wide-ranging overloads, DC brakes and other quality control gear to buy or rent, always at a highly-competitive price.
