HID speaks out on energy
July 1999

One of the first industrial companies to gain the right to use the Energy Savings Trust's energy saving logo was HID for its range of Hitachi AC inverters. The company has long advocated the use of AC motor control to make energy savings in continuous duty cycles such as found in fan and pump applications. Indeed, Hitachi has invested heavily in pioneering the development of auto tuning and auto energy saving drives for high consumption duty cycles.
