Why Get a Line Reactor?

Why Get a Line Reactor?

Protect Your Drives and Avoid Downtime

A line reactor is an inductor that absorbs high voltage microsecond transients that can damage the Variable Frequency Drives running your facility. Line reactors achieve this by slowing the rise time of the voltage spike to keep your VFDs safe. Line reactors are a relatively inexpensive way to protect several drives in an installation.

Generally speaking, it’s wise to spend a few hundred bucks to protect a drive or multiple drives that cost thousands of dollars, not to mention the costs associated with downtime and loss of production if your drive(s) go down.

Located throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Buckles-Smith represents multiple manufacturers and types of input protection line reactors. We can help you choose the solution that’s right for you.
