Electrical control equipment — Solutions for improved energy efficiency and reliability

IPS customizes electrical control solutions to optimize the energy efficiency and reliability of electric motors and driven equipment. We consider nameplate data on motors, but we also look at the actual energy demands of the application.

We provide a large selection of power system control equipment, including motor controls, soft starters, and switchgear equipment. IPS bundles this equipment with installation and commissioning, ongoing service, testing, and maintenance.

Motor controls

We sell, service, repair, and replace various speed controls, including:

  • AC speed controller motor units
  • Brushless DC motor units
  • Inverter units

These controls offer manual and automatic stops and starts, forward or reverse rotation, speed and torque control, and overload protection. IPS carries across-the-line, low-and medium-voltage, and VFD motor controls from leading OEMs.

For a fast quote on new or reconditioned motor controls, talk to your local IPS representative or contact us here.

Custom panels

IPS Custom Equipment builds panels to specification. Our CSA/UL-Certified control panel shop offers turnkey design and engineering, fabrication, programming, installation, startup, and service.

Soft starters

IPS carries soft starters from leading OEMs. These units provide a superior alternative to across-the-line motor starts.

Over time, the spikes in current and starting torque from across-the-line starts damage motors and driven equipment. These starts also increase peak power demand, raising energy costs.

Our soft starter recommendations reduce powertrain starting loads and mechanical shocks for lower energy costs and longer equipment life.

For recommendations and a quote on soft starters, talk to your local IPS representative or contact us here.


If your application requires speed control, then you need VFDs. IPS offers VFD sales with recommendations and service.

These custom packages typically pay for themselves within a year in reduced energy costs.


IPS single-source capabilities include expanded switchgear resources. We carry and service a broad line of new and repurposed electrical equipment.

We also provide dedicated remanufacturing for customer-supplied switchgear, circuit breakers, and related components.
