The VLT® 3000is in the Inactive phase and has reached the end of its life cycle. Danfoss offers an extensive portfolio of low voltage drives and can help you select the optimal replacement drive for your application. Danfoss' Life Cycle management model recommends replacement using the DrivePro® Retrofit service.



Inactive: A drive in the Inactive phase has no spare parts or service options available. Operating a drive whilst in this phase may result in unpredictable process downtime due to wear or failure.  To avoid these risks, we recommend retrofitting with a new-generation replacement drive, to bring the latest technological advantages to your application.
