Inverter-duty motors are designed to handle much lower speeds without overheating, and can withstand the voltage spikes typically associated with inverter usage. Inverter-duty induction motors are used in applications where variable speed operation is needed, such as machine tools, conveyors, crane and hoist systems, extruders and packaging/converting equipment.
