Our knowledge center has everything you need to stay ahead: from updates on industry trends, innovations, and insights – including changes to local and regional regulations. You can also head to the archive for various articles, presentations, and our drives handbook.
Visit our dedicated blog FocusOnDrives for all the latest news – and never lose track of what makes the industry tick.
Get direct access to a wealth of information by joining our webinars, and discover more about our extensive range of drives – including how they can help optimize your applications. All webinars are free and include a Q&A session.
Dive deeper into the world of AC drives
AC drives and AC motor speed controllers work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep businesses and societies running smoothly. Discover how we’re using our drives to boost energy efficiency and productivity gains in addition to promoting electrification and digitalization of global industries.
Drives have the potential to be so much more than simple power processors, designed to act as sensors and sensor hubs to process, store and analyze data – in addition to their built-in connectivity capabilities. Condition-based monitoring can help modernize and optimize your automation systems. Learn more about CBM here.
The Ecodesign Directive is the EU legislative framework that sets requirements for all energy-related products sold within domestic, commercial, and industrial sectors. Learn more about energy-efficiency legislation and stay on top of any changes that may affect your business.
With global interest in renewable energy sources growing, so too is the need for enough green energy infrastructure to capture and stabilize supply and demand. With hybridization, Danfoss has made it possible to use different types of energy at the same time – further bridging the gap between energy generation and consumption.
When you need information quickly, ask MyDrive® Assistant for fast, AI-guided troubleshooting. No more searching through manuals for answers to warning, fault and alarm codes, or FAQs — simply start describing your problem. The assistant interprets your intent and guides you to the right content.
By packing our drives with sensors, we’re putting condition-based monitoring under the spotlight. Using data collected by the sensors, track the condition of your equipment every moment of the day and “predict” when future failures might occur. This will help you maximize uptime, optimize maintenance, improve management of your spare parts inventory, and more.
Among our many innovations is an alternative to servo control. With Integrated Motion Controllers, we’ve made our AC drives capable of executing high-precision positioning and synchronization operations without the need for additional modules or hardware.
One of many functions we include in our drives is droop function, whereby one motor controls speed and additional drives follow along and automatically share the load. This stops motors from being overloaded and, as a result, overheating – so your machines can perform better for longer.
With our motor drive solution VLT® FlexMotion™ we’ve combined state-of-the-art motor technology with the industry’s most advanced drive system – so you can optimize your entire operation using only one platform. Enjoy maximum flexibility from a solution also designed to uphold the highest health and safety regulations, making it ideal for food and beverage production facilities.
Designed specifically for HVAC systems, the EC+ concept allows you to choose each individual component so you can experience new levels of efficiency and performance compared to using an EC motor. By giving you the flexibility to combine the motor, drive and fan regardless of brand, you’ll also gain more control over your systems.
