Energy-efficient motor control

The VLT® AutomationDrive FC 360 is a compact, space-saving, general-purpose AC drive available in 5 frame sizes. Designed with ease-of-use, reliability and flexibility in mind, the basic, yet comprehensive features provide precise and energy-efficient motor control for a wide range of industrial applications.

The VLT® AutomationDrive is designed to perform reliably in harsh environments. The coated PCB reduces dust, moisture and particle issues and the maximum operating temperature is 55C. Built-in features, such as PID controller, EMC filter, DC choke and brake chopper to 22 kW, save costs and installation space. IP 20 protection, a removable fan and an enhanced numerical display ensure fast setup and simpler maintenance.
