Danfoss Drives has added an M5 frame size to its VLT Micro Drive family.

The M5 frame size is 11.5 (h) x 6.5 (w) x 9.8in (d), and covers the three-phase 380-480VAC, 25-30 HP range.

The drive offers true side-by-side mounting without any derating due to its compact book-style design.

An Automatic Energy Optimiser function allows the drive to consume less energy while the Automatic Motor Adaptation feature leverages the motor’s full operating potential.

The drive also features up to 150 per cent more torque for up to a full minute, eliminating the need to oversize the drive.

In addition to the M5 frame size, VLT Micro Drives are available in single-phase 200-240VAC, 0.25-2HP; three-phase 200-240VAC, 2HP; three-phase 380-480VAC, 0.5-3 HP; and three-phase 380-480 VAC, 15-20 HP power-range configurations.

The VLT Micro Drive is a genuine VLT variable-frequency drive with high reliability and condensed functionality that is easy to commission.

They feature conformal coated PCBs per IEC 60721-3-3, class 3C3, and provide serial communication via RS 485 Modbus RTU and FC protocols.

A detachable Local Control Panel (LCP) with or without a potentiometer, an LCP copy function, as well as a panel-front mounting kit for the LCP, are also featured.

The Micro Drive provides IP20 protection, even without the terminal cover, and can be commissioned in minutes to perform complex operations.

Approximately 100 parameters can be set to optimise energy efficiency and operation.

A ‘flying start’ feature provides more uptime while an electronic thermal relay eliminates the need for external motor protection.

A built-in RFI filter saves on cost and space.

The drive also features a smart-logic controller, allowing users to program the controller to react on virtually any event, often eliminating the need for a PLC.

Additional features include built-in AC and DC brake functions that help the drive transform kinetic energy from the application into braking power, intelligent heat management and coated electronics for maximised drive reliability and life, and the ability to copy settings via a local control panel to easily set up multiple drives.
