IPS customizes electrical control solutions to optimize the energy efficiency and reliability of electric motors and driven equipment. We consider nameplate data on motors, but we also look at the actual energy demands of the application.
We provide a large selection of power system control equipment, including motor controls, soft starters, and switchgear equipment. IPS bundles this equipment with installation and commissioning, ongoing service, testing, and maintenance.
We sell, service, repair, and replace various speed controls, including:
These controls offer manual and automatic stops and starts, forward or reverse rotation, speed and torque control, and overload protection. IPS carries across-the-line, low-and medium-voltage, and VFD motor controls from leading OEMs.
IPS Custom Equipment builds panels to specification. Our CSA/UL-Certified control panel shop offers turnkey design and engineering, fabrication, programming, installation, startup, and service.
IPS carries soft starters from leading OEMs. These units provide a superior alternative to across-the-line motor starts.
Over time, the spikes in current and starting torque from across-the-line starts damage motors and driven equipment. These starts also increase peak power demand, raising energy costs.
Our soft starter recommendations reduce powertrain starting loads and mechanical shocks for lower energy costs and longer equipment life.
If your application requires speed control, then you need VFDs. IPS offers VFD sales with recommendations and service.
These custom packages typically pay for themselves within a year in reduced energy costs.
IPS single-source capabilities include expanded switchgear resources. National Switchgear, an IPS Company, carries and services a broad line of new and repurposed electrical equipment.
National also provides dedicated remanufacturing for customer-supplied switchgear, circuit breakers, and related components.
