Space-saving, high power density ac drives
17 April 2015
Vacon UK has introduced a range of space-saving, high power density ac drives. These liquid cooled enclosed units offer 25 percent lifecycle cost savings compared to air cooled drives.
NXP drives avoid requirements for large and noisy air conditioning systems. Their state-of-the-art liquid cooled design allows heat to be readily transferred to a location where it can be dissipated conveniently.
The new liquid cooled drives dissipate only 0.1 to 0.15 percent of their heat losses to air, helping customers save energy and money on initial installation and operational costs. And, as an added benefit, they are also up to 12dB(A) less noisy than fan based drives.
A range of ready-to-use software applications is available, so customers can tailor their drive’s performance to the needs of the application.
The standard NXP liquid cooled enclosed drive can be used with ac motors from 800-1,550kW. However, using Vacon’s DriveSync control concept, four drives can be operated in parallel, offering a power range of up to 5.3MW.
