Maximum performance in demanding environments

VACON® 20 X is a decentralized drive that can either be mounted directly onto a motor or very close by wherever it is located. Its outdoor enclosure protection ensures maximum performance in challenging conditions where heat, dirt and vibration levels are high.

The use of electrical rooms is minimized and cabling costs reduced as the drive can be installed as close to the motor as possible. A protective vent ensures pressure inside the drive is equalized with the surrounding environment. It acts as a barrier against condensation, dust and dirt to ensure reliable drive operation and to prevent the rubber seals from wearing down.

VACON 20 X is quick to install and easy to keep clean. And the built-it PLC functionality makes custom-made software solutions possible.
