    'Clear the tubes' for rapid transport through the clinic(05/12/2011)

    The Innsbruck University Clinic extended and modernised an existing system to make it the most modern pneumatic mail system in Europe. The required pressure is provided by more than 100 bellows, controlled by Danfoss VLT HVAC drives saving money on energy, maintenance and wear and tear.

    Danfoss helps home improvement chain save a lot of energy and money(25/11/2011)

    A leading company in the European home improvement sector has saved 762,890 euros after reducing the energy consumption at 24 stores by a massive 6.9 million kWh. As competition grows and energy prices soar, many retailers are looking for cost-efficient ways to reduce their energy consumption and strengthen their bottom lines. Heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and lighting systems consume significant amounts of energy and are obvious candidates for energy-saving activities.

    Denmark’s first house with an energy surplus(11/11/2011)

    A pleasant indoor climate and no energy costs. This is a fact of life in the Zero+ house – the first home in Denmark that produces more power than it actually consumes. A family house that supplies its own heating and electricity – and even generates excess electricity. It may seem odd, but these are the facts when we’re talking about the Zero+ house in central Sønderborg, southern Denmark.

    Remote control for your soft starter(27/10/2011)

    The new VLT LCP 501 control panel provides seamless communication and control of the VLT Soft Starter MCD 500. Everything that you can do with the VLT Soft Starter MCD 500 is now also possible with the cable-connected, remote control panel VLT LCP 501. Using the same multi-language menu, setup is intuitive, flexible and fast.

    Boiler-house renovation at Unilever saves 25% energy with VLT AQUA Drive(13/10/2011)

    Unilever in Rotterdam is one of the largest margarine factories in the world producing more than 200,000 tonnes per year, along with the famous Calvé brand products. The processes are energy intensive. In 2009, Unilever’s research on the efficiency of the existing boiler-house, which provides much of the energy needs of the plant, showed that a 25% reduction in CO2 emissions could be achieved through a process of renovation.

    'Deragging' software now available on the Danfoss VLT AQUA drive(29/09/2011)

    Waste water from households and industry contains particles and fibres that are not removed by screen filters. These fibres (particles) will build up on the impeller vanes of wastewater pumps, leading to poor efficiency and extensive pump wear. The maintenance of these pumps can be expensive and time consuming, often requiring special lifting equipment. So-called ‘ragging’ is a serious ongoing issue.

    See Danfoss VLT Drives' new EC+ concept at the Energy Event(18/08/2011)

    If you would like to see how Danfoss VLT Drives' new EC+ technology can bring optimum energy efficiency to your system designs, make a note to visit the Energy Event 2011 (NEC Hall 6, Stand 2808, September 13 and 14) where technical experts will be on hand to demonstrate how installation of the VLT® frequency converter series of drives can result in significant energy saving performance with immediate positive impact on your bottom line.

    VLT Drives training courses from Danfoss(12/08/2011)

    The Danfoss VLT Training Programme offers professional training in multiple subjects at various levels for Danfoss VLT product users. These training courses will improve users' general knowledge of modern variable speed drive technologies and, more specifically, highlight the menu structures, as well as the more common faults and pitfalls that new VLT users are likely to experience. Courses are pitched for both novice and more experienced users.

    New current limiting feature for ignition protection(15/07/2011)

    Danfoss VLT Drives has introduced a new current limiting feature for its VLT AutomationDrive, which makes it easier to apply “Ex-e” motors instead of the more expensive “Ex-d” motors. The feature ensures that the VLT drive will limit motor current to prevent the motor from overheating. The user simply enters data from the motor nameplate via the drive's control panel, and from this data, the drive creates a “loft” that limits the current provided dependent on motor speed.

    Danfoss EC+ - boosting the efficiency of ventilation systems(06/07/2011)

    The Danfoss EC+ concept applies a new algorithm in the VLT HVAC drive to control permanent magnet (PM) motor driven ventilation installations. Using the voltage vector mode in the Danfoss VLT HVAC drive, the same dynamic performance and minimal losses are achievable when controlling PM motors as has always been the case with standard induction motors. Indeed, tests have proved efficiencies above 90% from drive input to motor shaft output in a large part of the speed control range.

    New brake resistor programme from Danfoss(24/06/2011)

    As with its earlier programme, Danfoss' new brake resistor programme will cover ranges for horizontal and vertical applications. The resistors will be available in IP20/21, IP54 and IP65 depending on size and all (except the IP65 resistor) will have built–in overload protection. The aluminium profile of the fixed resistor element is filled with quartz sand to ensure minimal change in resistor surface temperature, even if the resistor reaches its maximum temperature during a pulsed load.

    VLT AutomationDrive: smart application set-up for standard applications(27/05/2011)

    In addition to great functionality and high quality, user-friendliness nears the top of the agenda when it comes to choosing a frequency converter. In a survey recently carried out on behalf of Danfoss, most users said that this aspect was extremely important. Danfoss is determined to make the commissioning of its drives as easy and simple as possible, from the moment the drive is first powered up to those occasions when factory settings need to be restored.

    New high-power drives of up to 250kW are considerably smaller(20/05/2011)

    Danfoss has introduced new and considerably smaller housings for its VLT frequency converters with power ranges between 90 and 250kW. Depending on their output and design, the drives are up to 66 per cent smaller in volume for the same performance than the previous models. In addition, Danfoss has extended the available options for the mains input side, including fuses, a load break switch, and - in the future - a contactor.

    Cool high-power drives(13/04/2011)

    Danfoss VLT high-power drives are available up to 1.4MW. Thanks to their power module design, they are extremely energy efficient by as much as 98%. However, a loss of just 2% for a 450kW drive is still 9kW, and this heat must be removed in order to protect the drive and ensure its long service life.

    Danfoss VLT FlexConcept: flexible, user-friendly, energy-saving and hygienic(24/03/2011)

    Danfoss has seamlessly integrated modern motor technology with the latest motor control components to create a fully co-ordinated, standardised system, called VLT FlexConcept. Suitable for conveyor drives, this system is easy to install, commission and maintain - regardless of whether the plant operator opts for a centralised or decentralised drive configuration.
