VLT Automation Drive
The VLT AutomationDrive is a single drive concept that covers an entire range of applications, which is a
major benefit in commissioning, operating and maintaining the equipment. The modular open-technology platform that VLT
AutomationDrive is built on makes it exceptionally adaptable and programmable. Its configurable, user-friendly interface supports
local languages and letters.
The drive solution can be adapted to any application due to the flexible option structure. Numerous options
are available and can be mounted and tested from factory or be plugged in later for change-over or upgrade. VLT AutomationDrive
has received the Frost & Sullivan award for innovation and the iF Design Award for its user-friendliness.
If you are looking for Danfoss Drives, please call us at (800) 894-0412 or email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org we will do our best to help you find
the Danfoss FC 302 inverter that you are looking for at the most competitive prices possible. If you are searching for
Danfoss Modular AutomationDrive VFD technical information (data-sheets) please use the datasheets or product selection guide
The modular concept of VLT AutomationDrive makes it highly adaptable also to future features and options.
Modularity offers the benefit of buying on a need-to-have basis without losing future possibilities. The Local Control Panel
(LCP) can be plugged in directly or connected through a cable for remote commissioning. The LCP can be disconnected during
operation and replaced with a blind cover. Settings are easily transferred via the LCP from one drive to another or from a PC to
a drive with the VLT Set-up Software MCT 10.

690V VLT Automation Drive
Reduce system costs and achieve remarkable space saving benefits with high performance frequency converters
that cover the complete power range from 1.1 kW - 1.4 MW. With the addition of 690V version of the VLT AutomationDrive, Danfoss
can offer a complete range of compact, reliable and efficient 690 V drives for demanding productions with own power supply. The
new series features drives that are among the smallest on the market up to 75kW.
Built on the powerful and reliable VLT platform, the drives offers system designers, builders and end users
the efficiency enhancing benefits offered by Danfoss' single drive concept for industrial applications. Suitable for use on
normal TN and IT (isolated) grids, the IP 20 protected drives are especially useful in installations within chemical, mining,
water/wastewater and marine applications.

Enclosed VLT Automation Drive
IP 66/Type 4X enclosed VLT frequency converters cover the range from 0.25 to 90 kW, allowing for mounting near
the motor in harsh environments. VLT AutomationDrive, VLT HVAC Drive and VLT AQUA Drive come in IP66/Type 4X versions covering
0.25 to 90 kW (normal overload). IP 66/Type 4X drives are suitable for installation in wash-down areas in food & beverage
plants, as well as outdoor in wastewater plants or on rooftop airhandling units.
The drives are built to withstand harsh cleaning agents and corrosive air. IP 66/Type 4X drives can be
installed directly at the processing equipment without the need for protective cover. All cast aluminium parts are powder coated
with a strong epoxy coating. The corrosion resistance has been successfully tested with commonly used cleaning detergents.
Protection against corrosive gasses complies with to IEC 60721-3-3 level 3C3.
Enclosed VLT AutomationDrive
- 3-phase 200V - 240V 0.25kW - 45kW
- 3-phase 380V - 600V 0.37kW - 90kW with 110% overload torque (normal overload)
- 3-phase 380V - 600V 0.37kW - 75kW with 160/150 % overload torque (High overload)
For open mounting - like on a frame - a stainless steel back plate is available to guide the air from the fan
through the rear heatsink. A watertight USB plug is available for mounting in a gland hole in the bottom of the drive. With this
plug it is possible to commission the drive via the VLT Set-up Software MCT 10 without opening the drive. The drive must be
installed under a suitable cover to protect from direct exposure to sun, snow and ice.
VLT Panel Optimised Drive
The installation volume and/or the mounting surface are reduced by up to 60% compared with previous series.
The service sections nevertheless fulfil the highest requirements even for applications with high overload, long motor cables and
ambient temperatures up to 50° C (55° C with derating).
Optimised efficiency and intelligent cooling technology make the compact and service-friendly design possible.
Even equipment such as EMC filters, harmonics suppression and brake modules are integrated in the enclosure. The IP 20 series is
designed for easy accessibility and time-saving installation. Mechanical fastening points are easy to access from the front even
with automatic tools. All terminals are sufficiently dimensioned and clearly marked.
VLT Panel Optimised
One need only loosen a few screws to get to the terminals. Accessories for bonding of screened cables are
included. The compact enclosures are easier to install. This is important especially within existing installations with poor
accessibility. The IP 20 enclosed series completes the enclosure program of the modular VLT series with IP 21, IP 55 and IP 66
enclosures. They all completely support the modular platform of the VLT series. An extensive range of options and accessories is
available, optimising the drive for the respective application.
