The best fit for direct machine mounting

Designed for simplicity and robustness, the VLT® Decentral Drive FCD 302 is a user-friendly product with high performance and a strong protection degree.

A decentral-drive solution eliminates the need for space-consuming control cabinets. And, with the drives placed near the motor, there is no need for long-screened motor cables.

With the VLT Decentral Drive FCD 302, all the options are built into the unit reducing the number of boxes to be mounted, and the connections and terminations in the installation. As a result, labor costs and the risks of failure are dramatically reduced.

Supply voltages and power range

  • 3 x 380-480 V...0.37-3 kW
