The VLT® 5000 is in the Inactive phase and has reached the end of its lifecycle. Danfoss offers an extensive portfolio of low-voltage drives and can help you select the optimal replacement drive for your application. Danfoss’ lifecycle 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.
