Efficiency and performance

The Danfoss Reverse Displacement Motor (RDM) is a breakthrough in technological innovation and engineering.

The heart of the new technology is an integrated shift valve, which, when used in a fan drive application, triggers a series of cost-saving and efficiency-boosting advances.

Features and benefits

Elimination of the directional control valve increases machine efficiency

Reducing the need - or even eliminating - the HIC block creates a higher performing system

Save money and assembly time by using fewer components such as hoses and valves saves money and assembly time

Freeing space in the engine compartment allows for innovative design

Eliminating the heat generated by traditional reversing systems keeps your machine running smoothly

Draws less power, so more power can be used for work

Optimize fan drive solutions with the RDM and the new Series 45 Fan Drive Control (FDC). When used with the RDM, FDC maximizes efficiencies and performance in an open circuit reversing fan drive system.

The Danfoss Reverse Displacement Motor is just one of the many product innovations and system solutions created by our continuous improvement and re-engineering efforts.

New possibilities for engineers

The elimination of the directional control valve and the integration of the shift valve into the Danfoss Reverse Displacement Motor (RDM) reduces system design variables and creates new possibilities for engineers.

The Danfoss RDM's space-friendly design was made possible by removing components. Less power use in the motor means more power is available for work. This means the less obstacles and a more optimized engine compartment for engineers and operators.  

Benefits

  • The innovative design means the RDM generates less heat and uses up to 10% less power than other solutions. Operators will feel the difference as they have more power to work with
  • Few components, a reduced need for, or even the elimination of, the HIC block, and compact motor design combine to free up more space in the engine department

 

Reduced complexity

Using the Danfoss Reverse Displacement Motor (RDM) in a fan drive application offers reduced complexity that pays off in several ways for product managers. 

The Danfoss RDM lets you tap into the power of simplicity to create greater assembly efficiencies and reduced aftermarket costs. That means fewer headaches and greater profitability.

Benefits

  • Fewer components in the hydraulic system means decreased assembly time
  • Common platforms across all displacements create efficiencies by removing the need for different tools, assembly processes and test methods
  • Less complexity through the hydraulic circulation system holds the promise of lower aftermarket support costs
  • PLUS+1® compliant for seamless integration into existing systems
  • Faster time to market with lower design and build times 

 

Danfoss quality, reliability and service

Perhaps the only think more impressive than this hydraulic system solution is the ability to reduce your costs while adding Danfoss quality, reliability and service.
