Energy saving heat management

Energy saving heat management

A unique back-channel cooling concept transfers up to 90% of heat away from the room, using a fan-less design that exploits heat differentials in materials and air temperature and the latest developments in heat piping technology.

Our back-channel cooling system offers up to 90% reduction in your investment for air cooling systems to remove heat from the drives.

Integrated condition-based monitoring

Integrated condition-based monitoring

Take motor and pump supervision to new levels with the intelligent VLT® AQUA drive.

Integrated condition-based monitoring lets you react quickly to critical situations like clogging, leaks, motor winding failure, vibration wear, mechanical misalignments and  wear-out.

Cloud-free artificial intelligence embedded in the drive automatically defines operating baseline parameters corresponding to specific applications, at all speeds and real-life operating cycles. Reduced installation time and predictive maintenance lower operating costs and boost uptime.

Energy efficient Harmonic Mitigation

The unique VLT® Low Harmonic Drive with integrated Advanced Active Filter delivers energy efficiency that is 2-3% better than traditional AC drives with Active Front End technology. Sleep function at low load ensures further energy savings.

Deragging for consistently high pump efficiency

Deragging for consistently high pump efficiency

Embedded in the drive, the deragging function provides proactive maintenance with regular or clog triggered ‘wash cycles’ to keep impellers clean for consistently high pump efficiency.
