Precise and powerful performance

VACON® NXP Air Cooled drives offer precision and power to applications that require a robust and dynamic performance. Available in a complete power range up to 2 MW, they are provided as wall-mounted, standalone enclosed and IP00 modules.

The drives provide optimized motor control for both induction and permanent magnet motors, and gearless drive applications and paralleling solutions for high-power motors. Fast fieldbus options and exceptional programming flexibility ensure the drives are easily integrated into any plant’s automation system. Engineering time and costs can be saved due to the high number of standardized options and reduced system complexity.

Supply voltages and power range

  • 3 x 208-240 V...0.55-90 kW
  • 3 x 380-500 V...1.5-1200 kW
    with DriveSynch 1.5-4000 kW
  • 3 x 525-690 V...2.0-2000 kW
    with DriveSynch 2.0-4500 kW

Features and benefits

Easy integration into any plant’s automation system thanks to fast fieldbus options and exceptional programming flexibility

Investment costs are minimized as no additional external modules are needed and the drives are supplied with five built-in expansion slots for additional I/O, fieldbus and functional safety boards

Fast response to changes due to dynamic open- and closed-loop vector control

The drive’s DC fans fulfill the ERP2015 directive on decreasing fan losses and significantly increase the reliability and lifetime of the fan

The lifetime of the drive and critical components are extended as a result of coated printed circuit boards that offer reliable protection against dust and moisture
