VACON® 3000 Drive Kit

  • Overview

Individually tailored to meet the toughest MV requirements

Heavy duty industries face some of the most complex and competitive engineering environments on the planet. Your industry and your applications demand adaptability in medium-voltage drives, where reliability, robustness, space and weight are crucial – and downtime is a disaster.

The VACON® 3000 Drive Kit is the only medium-voltage drive (MV drive) available as a modular kit, which accommodates flexible arrangements, straightforward system integration and easy maintenance.

The modular advantage

When customization counts, choose this range of modular medium-voltage (MV) drives. Empowering systems integrators and OEMs, it delivers a whole new approach to attaining the ultimate in performance, exactly tailored to the needs of each application and installation environment.


Danfoss Drives works with select, qualified partners to push the boundaries of the medium-voltage drives market to deliver something never seen before.

This means that you can discuss your needs in depth with our Medium Voltage Partners, to define a design encompassing the ultimate and exact characteristics you expect of an MV drive.
