Vacon 100 range now rated up to 800kW

01 August 2015

The Vacon 100 range of ac variable speed drives has been extended to include models rated up to 800kW, available as IP00 modules for mounting within control panels and in enclosed versions with a choice of IP21 or IP54 protection.

All versions feature compact construction and all are available with power ratings up to 630kW (400V) and 800kW (690V). Higher powers can be achieved by operating the drives in parallel.

The new models offer advanced commissioning tools for rapid, straightforward set-up, plus powerful diagnostics with a plain-text help system. They also feature, as standard, integrated support for ModBus TCP, Ethernet I/P and Profinet IO connectivity. Plug-in option cards are available to provide support for other popular communication and fieldbus standards.

Other key features include enhanced safety with Safe Torque Off in line with uncontrolled stop category 0 of EN 60204-1, Safe Stop 1 in line with controlled stop category 1 of EN 60204-1, and ATEX-certified motor over-temperature protection. These functions are achieved without the need for additional external components.

Vacon 100 drives, including the new high power versions, use film capacitors rather than the usual electrolytic types in the critical dc link section. This means that the drives are more reliable, more energy efficient and have longer working lives. It also eliminates the need for time-consuming and inconvenient capacitor reforming, even if the drives are in storage or out of service for long periods.
