Vacon takes its product offering to the next level

19 June 2012

Three new AC drive products have been introduced by Vacon. The VACON 100, VACON 100 X and VACON 20 X have been designed to improve the company’s product offering, helping customers to optimise efficiency in application processes throughout a wide range of industries.

We are told that the flagship AC drive VACON 100 is one of the most important new products in the company's history. "The VACON 100 is a multipurpose drive that can be adapted for hundreds of different applications. It offers the lowest cost of ownership and the best usability," said Heikki Hiltunen, executive vice president, Market Operations at Vacon.

Features of the VACON 100 include an easy-to-use fully graphical multilingual display and extended built-in block programming for drive customisation. Fatures for easy system integration include a Safe Torque Off (STO) function, on-board Ethernet-based communication protocols such as EtherNet/IP, PROFINET IO and Modbus TCP and ATEX-certified motor over-temperature protection.

The VACON 100 X and VACON 20 X are part of the new range of decentralised AC drives for situations where space comes at a premium. They can also offer cost savings as no additional enclosures are required.

"With IP66/Type 4X enclosures, the VACON 100 X and 20 X are ready to be used in harsh conditions," said Hans Carlsson, product marketing director, Motor Drives at Vacon. "Placing the drive as close to the motor as possible or in the most appropriate location allows considerable savings to be achieved as no separate electrical rooms, long shielded motor cables or drive cabinets are required. This is one of the ways for our customers to achieve the optimum total cost for their drive solution."
