Power control for vehicles, machines and marine applications

Danfoss Editron electric drivetrains are specially designed for controlling the flow of hybrid and electric power in vehicle, machine and marine applications.

Main product groups

Electric converters including inverters and frequency converters

Electric DC-to-DC converters

The software for all products supports a variety of the communication protocols. These are most widely used in vehicles e.g. SAE–J1939 and CANopen. As a Danfoss customer, you can further customize the operation of the inverters. Additionally, create your own applications with the license-free CODESYS IEC61131-3 programming tool.

Power range 100-2,000 kW

EC-C1200 is built with components that can handle double the number of load cycles. Which is compared to components used in standard industrial inverters. The standard lifespan of EC-C1200 products is up to 20 years. The high-performance vector control of Danfoss EC-C1200 drives the motors accurately and smoothly. It can control induction motors (IM) and permanent magnet (PM) motors Additionally, Danfoss reluctance-assisted permanent magnet (SRPM) motors with or without sensors. The EC-C1200 can be selected with different software options. This allows it to work as active front end, microgrid, motor control (inverter) and as a DC-to-DC converter.

Product range

Current up to 350 Arms continuous as AC-converter and up to 400 ADC continuous as a DC/DC-converter.

The EC-C1200-450 is a heavy-duty converter. It is specifically developed for electric or hybrid drive trains in mobile work machines, buses or marine vessels. Our electric converter can act as motor inverter, active front end, DC/DC-converter, or to create a microgrid.
