VSD SpeedStar
VSD SpeedStar

Deliver reliable pumping power and protection

Optimize production by increasing system run life with our complete line of surface power systems, cables, and motor lead extensions designed to provide reliable power and protection.

The product line includes

  • variable speed drives that enable pumps to perform across a wider operating range than typical by varying their speed
  • fixed speed drives in low- to medium-voltage switchboards that provide motor control, protection, and monitoring
  • project engineering, data delivery, and manufacturing capabilities that improve surface power performance
  • onsite electric submersible pump (ESP) controllers that eliminate the need for multiple surface components
  • customizable ESP cables for specific downhole conditions
  • motor lead extensions with durable insulation.
