Electric motors consume over 50% of all electricity generated in the United States.  Reducing energy cost while improving process reliability can be simple with improved motor management practices. Our educational workshops and training classes are tailored to your needs, combining classroom instruction and hands-on activities. In this class we will cover motor applications and demonstrate, variable frequency drives, motor protection, and the economics of the most critical equipment employed by businesses today.

Our one day workshops are tailored for a variety of audiences interested in achieving energy savings and reliability improvements with motor driven systems. Our audiences include motor end users, trade associations, utility account representatives and a host of individuals all along the motor supply chain.

Workshop Outcome

This workshop will teach you how to implement an efficient motor management policy for your company, thereby increasing productivity, decreasing downtime and reducing your total motor management costs.  All motors are not created equal.
