For 50 years, Danfoss Drives has been a global leader in the variable speed control of electric motors.
We have the world’s largest installed base of VLT® and VACON® AC drives, and can draw on decades of passion and experience within a wide range of industries.
An AC drive is a device used to control the speed of an electrical motor in order to:
enhance process control
reduce energy usage and generate energy efficiently
decrease mechanical stress on motor control applications
optimize the operation of various applications relying on electric motors
Drives can also be utilized to convert energy from natural and renewable resources like the sun, wind or tides, and transmit it to the electrical network or use it for local consumption. In hybrid technologies, AC drives are used to combine conventional energy sources and energy storages to create total energy management solutions.
AC drives are also known by various other names such as adjustable speed drives, adjustable frequency drives, variable frequency drives, variable speed drives, frequency converters, inverters and power converters.
Vacon, now a subsiduary of Danfoss, provide an unbeatable product range and outstanding results.
The benefits of a variable speed drive enable the user to control the speed of the motor which helps with process control, managing system stress and energy savings.
Optimim process control and energy efficiency for a wide variety of electric motor driven applications in a diverse range of industries.
Including liquid- and air-cooled drives, the portfolio covers a power range of 0.25 kW – 5.3MW.
