Danfoss Drives is celebrating two outstanding anniversaries for its VLT® and Vacon® brands. It’s 50 years since the Danfoss VLT® 5 Drive was launched (the world’s first mass-produced AC Drive) and 25 years since VACON® was founded. To celebrate this remarkable double event and to highlight the reliability and longevity of its products, Danfoss is running a competition to find the oldest VLT® and VACON® drives still in service.
The Company owning the oldest working product of each brand entered in the competition, will be awarded a gift voucher for a popular on-line retailer. Awards will also be made for the oldest drives in specific product ranges such as VLT® 3000, 5000, 6000 and VACON® V10, CX, NXL, etc. to find the oldest in each class!
“We are a true pioneer of variable speed drive technology,” said Alan Baird, Danfoss Drives UK & Ireland Country Manager, “and it’s remarkable to look around and see how this technology has revolutionised industry over the 50 years since we first made it practical and readily available. With this in mind, we think our dual anniversary is great cause for celebration and we’ve organised this competition so that our loyal customers have a chance to share in that celebration with us.”
To enter the competition and find the oldest Danfoss drives, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and give brief details of the drive you think has the best chance of winning including the model of the drive and how long it’s been in service. If it looks like your drive could be a winner, Danfoss will contact you for further information.
