VLT® DriveMotor FCM 106

The VLT® DriveMotor FCM 106 drive has reached the Inactive phase of its lifecycle, which means it is discontinued and no longer in production. Spare parts and service options are no longer available. Operating a drive in this phase may result in unpredictable process downtime due to wear or failure.
