Controls are the best way to manage your machine, observe its ongoing performance, and regulate daily operation. Ideal controls can be designed for any motor, generator, or electrical system and set the industry standard for long-lasting accuracy and precision. Our robust controls provide insightful data into the health and function of your machine quickly and consistently. 


Control Features

Ideal controls are designed to interface with any type of prime mover, including gas and steam turbines,  reciprocating engines, and hydro turbines.  Ideal controls are ergonomically designed, with operator interface maximized. Ideal Electric consistently coordinates controls, generators, and the prime mover as a service. Our ability to identify possible problems and offer solutions early in the design earned us our incredible reputation. 

Our total package approach allows us to manufacture the generator, switchgear, and controls, ensuring that your system works in perfect harmony. Our rotating equipment engineers work closely with our switchgear and control engineers to provide coordinated systems, offering proper prime mover and generator protection.

The company built split frame motors for streetcars and elevators. A century of continuous innovation and corporate growth followed and in 2020 IDEAL celebrated 117 years under new, privately held, American ownership.
