Power aviation equipment with Invention House’s American-made 400 Hz motor drive.
Powering the onboard electric motors and systems of planes, helicopters, and other military aircraft requires a powerful and compact variable frequency motor drive. A drive is needed that supports the necessary horsepower, inputs, and outputs while meeting extreme environments. Heavy drives also impact the operating ability of aviation equipment. Invention House understands the importance of lightweight power systems and offers ruggedized 400 Hz motor drives that work over a wide range of voltages, frequencies, and temperatures. Our team has been using leading in-house design and production processes to provide American-made motor controls that offer the following advantages:
Many large motor drive companies face significant production standards that limit their ability to meet the specific needs of their clients. Invention House is proud to be a small, independent motor drive manufacturer capable of customizing our products to satisfy particular requirements. We work hard to develop motor drives that suit any application.
Equipment weight is a critical factor in the aviation industry. Heavy items or those that take up too much space create operational issues that impact an aircraft’s efficiency. Invention House’s 400 Hz motor drive is designed to be lightweight and combines multiple processes, enabling aerospace and defense companies to maximize space.

Finding the right variable frequency drive manufacturer is critical for maintaining equipment efficiency. The 40 Hz motor drive offered by Invention House is ideal for helicopter-based winches and aviation-based motors, driving pumps, fans, and mechanisms and provides the following specifications:
- 3PD input/output congiutarion
- 230VAC – 65Amps rms (20hp)
- 50/60/400hz output
- Flange for bulkhead mounting
- Minimal cooling required
- -40℃ to 55℃ temperature operating range
- Withstands 40g shock and 2 grms vibration
- 10 lbs total weight
Our 400 Hz motor can be used inside and outside with appropriate enclosures, has an allowable voltage fluctuation of -10% to 10%, and provides the following main control functions for optimal performance:
- Speed control
- Run in current limit
- Upper lower limits for frequency reference
- Fault restart
At Invention House, our goal is to create reliable, efficient, and economical motor control products for our clients. We’ve been building and troubleshooting variable frequency drives for military and commercial applications for over two decades and work hard to meet the specific needs of our customers.
Along with our 400 Hz motor drives, we also offer 3-phase motor drives and single-phase motor drives that meet military specs and work in extreme environments. We also provide onsite and remote training and repair services to enhance efficiency. From checking internal elements and sensors to repairing faulty drives, we deliver expert solutions to maximize your operations.
