Danfoss VLT 2800


Quick Guide

An excellent price/performance have made the VLT 2800 a pace-setter within general purpose drives. In virtually any application, the VLT 2800 has proved trustworthy, robust, easy to operate and commision. A favourable price combined with reliability and a number of useful functionalities have made the VLT 2800 a pace-setter within general purpose drives.

Automatic Motor Tuning (AMT) measures the motor parameters to ensure optimal match between drive and motor thus increasing performance of your drive Application and saving commissioning time. The VLT 2800 complies with the EMC norm EN 55011 Class 1A and 1B (with RFI filter). The VLT 2800 will survive even short circuit of motor cables and short circuit of signal cables. The VLT 2800 will operate normally (no need for derating) in environment temperatures up to 45° C (24 hour average max. 40° C.)

New features improve pump operation significantly and result in improved energy savings as well as pump protection in case of dry run situations. This new feature will protect the pump in case the well runs dry, by shutting down before damaging the pump. VLT 2800 is designed for flexible mounting. A ventilated heatsink allows for side by side mounting and even horisontal mounting. When using pumps with flat pump curves or when the suction pressure varies, this feature provides excellent control for shutting down the pump at low flow, thus saving energy. VLT 2800 provides three-phase power from a single-phase line outlet. When a VLT 2800 single-phase is used, it's just like getting three-phase power from a standard power socket - for pumps, fans, blowers etc. Now up to 3.7 kW (5 HP).

The wobble function is used for the traverse function on a textile winder. VLT 2800 operates a motor, which turns a grooved drum. During winding, the grooved drum places the thread in the correct position on the bobbin, in a diamond pattern. If the traverse (grooved) drum was operating at a constant speed, the thread would tend to cross at the same position for each pass, which would give a very loose and less compact winding on the bobbin. Conventional units rely on a periodic scan of the digital inputs, which initiates the Stop command. This can result in uneven delays while the drive scans all the other parts of the program taking up to perhaps 10 ms. This is a disadvantage in typical packaging applications.

For a conveyor operating at a speed of 1 metre/second, that gives a deviation of ±10 mm. In the VLT 2800, the Stop command is an interrupt rather than part of the scan. The repeating precision is improved. The deviation is only ±1 mm in the example used above. After the start signal is received, the VLT 2800 operates until the user programmed number of pulses is seen at terminal 33. A Stop signal is generated and the normal stop ramp is used. The counter stop signal is then re-armed and ready again for a new start command. The pulse input is designed to handle 24 V push-pull pulses from an encoder with up to 1024 ppr. The maximum pulse rate is 67,600 Hz.
