Saftronics, a part of Emerson's Industrial Automation unit since its acquisition, has been a key player in the field of industrial automation for over 30 years. Control Concepts is proud to offer repair and maintenance services for a range of Saftronics drives, catering to the demands of modern industry.
Saftronics, now under Emerson Control Techniques, has been designing, manufacturing, distributing, and servicing a full range of solid-state motor controls for industrial automation. Their products, ranging from fractional horsepower to several thousand horsepower, optimize applications requiring control of speed and torque of electric motors.
Saftronics provides a variety of drives and drive systems for industrial applications, serving industries from water and HVAC to mining.
Their primary products include:
Saftronics drives are known for their reliability and efficiency. However, challenges such as electrical faults, programming errors, or component failures can still occur. Control Concepts is equipped to provide expert troubleshooting and repair services for Saftronics equipment. We offer prompt and effective repairs, upgrades, or retrofits. we can provide fast and efficient upgrades and retrofits.
Saftronics' drives are designed for various industries, ensuring optimal performance in diverse settings, including:
Control Concepts services a range of Saftronics products, including:

The most frequent fault that halts a drive is an over-current fault, which can have numerous causes. Our approach begins with understanding the dynamics of the motor and then delving deeper.
Our repair process begins with a thorough inspection of the motor drive and terminals. We conduct comprehensive tests before powering the drive unit to prevent further damage. Once powered, we perform various tests to ensure the drive's functionality. We check the motor drive and terminals for substandard connections which can be caused by anything from heat cycles and mechanical vibration to reusing or over-tightening torque screws.
We conduct diode and IGBT tests on the input/output power sections before applying power to the drive unit. This is to protect against further damage from a short.
We power up the unit and perform amp readings and output frequency tests, slowly increasing the voltage until the rated input voltage of the drive is reached.
If everything functions properly, we use the drive to run a motor through basic jog functions after backing up existing programs. If the motor does not run, we check the output voltages and current ratings going to the motor to check the drive function for motor rotation.
Most drive failures can be avoided through preventative maintenance, such as:
