Danfoss Drives — We do things differently 

Eight. A lucky number for many — including us. It’s what pushes us, knowing that a world where motors are run by drives could lead to an 8% reduction in energy consumption by 2040. It’s a reality that is gaining momentum, with more investment being made into energy efficiency, hybridization and electrification.

Our approach to drives

We’re experts in optimizing motor efficiency and energy consumption. But to take full advantage of AC drive technology, we think outside the box. Like taking into account our customers’ entire businesses and systems, or even megatrends like climate change. For solutions designed to make a lasting difference today — and tomorrow. 

We always strive for maximum flexibility so that our drives can be used by any brand of motor, any system, and for any need. Building AC drives designed with the technical, commercial and operational aspects of system lifetime in mind, giving you the insight and data to make informed decisions. Because to change how the world consumes energy, we all need a foot in the door.

A better tomorrow is driven by drives

As global energy demand grows, energy conservation becomes ever more vital. That’s why we at Danfoss want the world to see AC drives the way we do: as the best way to control electrical motor speed and thus, save energy. Ultimately, helping people view energy efficiency as an energy source — the “first fuel”, as some would say.

We’re putting these goals into action by aiming for CO2 neutrality by 2030.

The iC7 series — a success story with dedication at its core

With more than 1,000 researchers focusing every effort into breaking new ground, we’ve been able to create AC drives that are smaller and better performing than anything you’ve ever seen — and packed with even more power, quality and reliability.

AC drives designed to succeed – and win
The new iC7 series has been engineered to help you win. To win by creating better performing systems and applications that make for better products and experiences — all the while supporting the environment and strengthening your bottom line.

The iC7 series 

The birth of the iC7 series

To create a new era of AC drives took years of intense research and development, backed by decades of know-how and passion. And help from thousands of experts, all determined to change how the world uses AC drives.

Rethinking the drive
To create a lasting impact with our drives meant starting with a clean slate. With our R&D and manufacturing teams designing drives for automated assembly, to reduce the risk of failure. And increasing their lifespan and quality through use of the Six Sigma method — as well as by testing them using hardware-in-the-loop simulations.

Quality as a cornerstone

By refusing to outsource, we control every process and ensure all drives are tested under load. For AC drives that offer ultra-reliability and full traceability.

A radical approach to research

Our R&D and manufacturing teams work hand-in-glove to help us reach our goals, using the Six Sigma approach and other market-leading strategies to ensure fast and accurate results.

Birth of the smart factory

Built from the ground up with each cell individually optimized, the iC7 series factory is fully digitalized to ensure the utmost consistency and traceability.

Expertise is the engine

In developing the iC7 series, cutting-edge project management practices include a sprint approach to both software and hardware engineering. In plenum problem solving sessions, colleagues present their ideas to peers for scrutiny in a safe environment. With the underlying philosophy of "fail fast", the result is unprecedented attention to detail.
