Flexible, robust and serviceable

The enclosed VACON® NXC is the compact drive that performs reliably in harsh operating conditions in, for example, the mining, oil and gas or water and wastewater industries. The thermally managed enclosure extends drive lifetime and ensures trouble-free operation.

The enclosures, which feature lifting lugs for easy handling, can be either wall-mounted or free-standing. The easily accessible control compartment for relays, auxiliary terminals and other equipment, and ample space around the power terminals ensure straightforward installation and connection of power cables. And the mounting rails and pull-out jig enable fast and efficient servicing of the power unit.
