Variable Speed Controls for 110 Volt Motors


Automated machines, such as conveyor belts and separators, use 110 volt motors to power the movement of products across a production area. Variable speed control devices provide precise control over how fast the products move on the machinery.


  • Variable speed control devices give control of a machine to one worker. The device activates through buttons or a floor pedal. By manipulating the speed control device, the worker can alter the speed of the 110 volt motor between a maximum and minimum rate for peak productivity.


  • The 110 volt motor driving the speed control device draws power from a wall outlet source of electricity. Since the motor operates at a standard voltage level, it can power many different kinds of devices. The pedal type of speed control allows a worker to keep his hands working on the product, rather than concentrating on working the speed control device.


  • The variable speed control device must be matched to the motor it controls. If a low powered speed control device is matched to a high powered motor, such as one that operates above 240 volts, the motor will not run correctly. Incorrect matching can damage the speed control device.
