Tough ac drives available
10 June 2008
Vacon, the Finland-based ac drives manufacturer, has introduced the new Vacon X product line. These ac drives are designed for harsh environments, and are able to endure dirt, dust, humidity and liquids. The Vacon X series is targeted at the food and beverage industry, material handling, and water and waste water treatment, but is ideally suited for all tough industrial applications.
"The new Vacon X series of ac drives supports our main value discipline, product leadership," said Heikki Hiltunen, executive vice president, Vacon. "It is a rugged family of variable speed ac drives, built and designed for harsh industrial environments. From simple applications to those requiring advanced communications, the Vacon X series offers an increasing level of performance and features for the industrial environment. Capabilities ranging from simple press-and-run keypad operation to a real-time clock, advanced PLC functions or a USB interface are available."
The Vacon X series of ac drives are available in IP66 enclosures through 75 kW and in IP55 to 132 kW for the ultimate environmental protection. The new Vacon X series is ideally configured for any industrial application where data collection, flexible interfacing, and automatic sequencing operation are a priority.
Vacon offers ac drives that accelerate the customer's business. For Vacon, product leadership means a broad product selection, outstanding ac drive expertise, customer relationship management, the latest technology and mass customisation.
The Vacon family of variable speed ac drives was complemented by this new product line after Vacon acquired the ac drives business of US-based TB Wood's in January 2008. First introduced by TB Wood's in 2005, these products are sold under their original SE2, X4 and X5 names in the US.
The Vacon X series will be introduced at the annual Vacon Drives Conference held this year in Tallinn, Estonia, on June 9-12. A total of some 250 people will participate in the Vacon Drives Conference 2008.
