VFDs & Thermal Imaging Services

We Have the Power to Get the Job Done Right

Powering an irrigation system demands significant energy, constituting a major expense for farmers. Fortunately, there are methods to reduce these costs by curbing energy usage. One approach is the installation of a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), utilized to regulate electric motors. However, these drives can sometimes overheat, leading to severe electrical complications. To identify such issues before they escalate into costly repairs, rely on the expertise of our electricians at Magic Valley Electric, who utilize thermal imaging techniques. We understand the critical need for uninterrupted irrigation, particularly during the bustling spring season for farmers. Our team is swift at responding, ensuring prompt and accurate resolution.

The Advantages of VFDs

The purpose of a VFD is to vary an irrigation pump’s motor speed by controlling both its input frequency and voltage. This enables operators to adjust the pump’s performance and speed to match the operating conditions of the irrigation well. In other words, if the pump doesn’t need to be running at full speed all the time, you can lower the speed to reduce energy costs.

The other advantages of VFDs include:

  • They improve product quality
  • They reduce production costs
  • They may qualify for utility and tax rebates or incentives
  • They reduce energy consumption
  • They give you tighter process control
  • They extend equipment life
  • They reduce maintenance costs
  • They conserve water
  • They reduce power line strain

Why Thermal Imaging Is Important

Thermal imaging doesn't just alert you to device overheating; it's also effective in identifying excessive current flow in irrigation pumps. When current passes through a device, it generates heat. However, an excess of current leads to an overproduction of heat, wasting energy and posing a significant risk to your system. Utilizing advanced infrared detection equipment, our team of three Infrared Training Center certified electricians can visualize otherwise invisible thermal signatures. This capability enables us to identify issues and prevent costly damage before it takes place.

Other benefits of thermal imaging in the Magic Valley are:

  • It limits downtime and prevents unplanned shutdowns
  • It protects your equipment and capital investment (VFDs and agriculture equipment aren’t cheap!)
  • It can, depending on your insurance company, reduce premiums
  • It is a quick and efficient way of providing an accurate diagnosis and pinpointing problem areas
  • It can help both you and our electricians prioritize repairs in order of their severity
