Danfoss has introduced a range of drives designed to save energy, reduce up-front and operating costs, and maximise uptime in industrial variable torque fan, pump, blower and compressor applications.

The VLT Automation VT drives are available for 240 and 480V AC single- and three-phase, or 575 and 690V AC three-phase operation with 1/2 up to 1,400HP, along with a wide range of industrial enclosure options, to support varied performance needs.

‘VLT Automation VT drives incorporate a number of energy-optimising features that can reduce energy usage in variable torque applications by up to 30 per cent,’ said Patrick Appleby, vice-president sales, NAM Industry.

‘A variety of available options minimises the initial investment and makes it possible to upgrade the drives in the field as application needs evolve,’ he added.

A Smart Logic Controller eliminates ancillary equipment to reduce installed costs.

Main disconnects and integral fusing further reduces installation cost by reducing panel space requirements.

Dedicated pump functions simplify programming and commissioning.

An optional one-wire Safe Stop can reduce installed costs for applications with safe operation requirements.

All VLT Automation VT drives feature an integrated DC link to eliminate the need for external filters, along with Intelligent Heat Management to remove excessive heat and promote maximum drive operating life.

An ambient temperature rating of 50C without derating eliminates the need for expensive cooling add-ons.

VLT Automation VT drives provide autotuning of PI controllers to eliminate the potential for tuning, while password protection reduces the potential for unauthorised changes to the drive settings.

They are available in a variety of industrial enclosures, from protected chassis to IP66 (NEMA 4X indoor), suitable for harsh washdown environments – without the need for customised panels.

These drives provide multiple language support to display all information in a user-selected language.
