The use of electrical rooms is minimized and cabling costs reduced as the drive can be installed as close to the motor as possible. A protective vent ensures pressure inside the drive is equalized with the surrounding environment. It acts as a barrier against condensation, dust and dirt to ensure reliable drive operation and to prevent the rubber seals from wearing down.

VACON 20 X is quick to install and easy to keep clean. And the built-it PLC functionality makes custom-made software solutions possible. Decentralized drive solutions enable engineers and machine designers to save on costs and space. In a decentralized drive solution, the drives are located as close as possible to the motor.

Vacon 20 Cold Plate Compact AC VFD Distributor

20 Cold Plate Series

VACON 20 Cold Plate is an open-frame, cold-plate drive. It is designed to use any type of cooling available inside a customers' installation and to operate reliably in demanding environments. Heat loss in AC drives can often affect surrounding machinery, particularly in compact drives that are mounted in tight spaces with insufficient airflow. With VACON 20 Cold Plate's unique cooling system, heat loss can be reduced in two ways. Attach the drive to a heat sink with large cooling ribs to create a fully passively cooled drive, or mount the drive on a plate which is cooled by liquid to create a liquid-cooled solution. With no heat fins, VACON 20 Cold Plate requires less mounting depth. It fits in the tightest of places saving space and costs related to panel size.

Cabinets can be sealed making VACON 20 Cold Plate ideal for very harsh and demanding environments with high temperatures, dust or moist conditions. It supports asynchronous induction as well as permanent magnet synchronous motors. And the built-in PLC functionality allows the creation of application-specific software and solutions.

Vacon 100 FLOW Fan & Pump AC Inverter Distributor

100 FLOW Series

VACON 100 FLOW is an AC drive that is dedicated to improving flow control and saving energy in industrial pump and fan applications.

Specifically designed features include Multipump solutions and application selection menus. They enhance pump performance and protect pipes and equipment to ensure reliable operation. Standard PID control uses a sensor to control pump speed instead of an external controller. This helps the drive to quickly react to fluctuations in demand for accurate process control and optimized energy savings.

Pumps and fans control the flow of water and air through the pipes, vents and waterways that are often out of sight, and yet remain central to our lives. VACON 100 FLOW places an emphasis on user-friendliness and functionalities created for use in pump & fan applications. We have used our extensive experience in the field to handpick all the features that are best suited to application requirements and putting them in one dedicated product. For instance, standard PID control eliminates the need for an external controller by using a sensor to control pump speed. This is useful when reacting to fluctuations in demand.
