Features and benefits

Slim down your TCO. Ongoing demands for lower TCO are challenges the VLT® HVAC Drive can help you meet.

Install it outdoors in extreme climates. Searing heat and deep frost are all in a day’s work for the enhanced VLT® HVAC Drive. You get full reliability running this drive outdoors with temperature extremes from 50°C to minus 25°C.

Control multiple IE5 PM motors. Bring energy efficiency to a new level in your fan and pump applications. You can even control multiple IE5 permanent magnet (PM) motors using only a single drive.

Save time. You can parameterize and troubleshoot the drive from outside the AHU, thanks to the remote LCP. Maximize uptime by reducing the shutdown, since there is no need to open up the AHU and lock it down again afterwards.

Get the freedom to choose your favorite motor. Choose exactly the motor you prefer, for whatever reason from supply security to performance optimization. The enhanced VLT® HVAC Drive is not only optimized to control induction, permanent magnet and synchronous reluctance motor technologies; our development team is working all the time to include compatibility with upcoming motor technologies in future software updates as well.

Get the freedom to communicate. The ability to integrate the AC drive easily into your building automation system is a key to optimal control. The VLT® HVAC Drive features a number of HVAC-specific communication protocols, such as BACnet/IP, that give you flexibility of installation in both new and existing building automation systems.
