The Benefits of Ownership

CO2 reduction, energy savings and lifecycle costs are all drivers in technology to reduce total cost of ownership. These factors and changes in legislation have resulted in diverse motor technology being utilised in the modern building environment. Danfoss Drives are uniquely prepared to meet the demands of this higher efficiency world.

Motor Independency

The same VLT® frequency converter can be used to control induction, permanent magnet and high efficiency synchronous reluctance motors.

What is more, these are easy and fast to commission as Danfoss Drives Automatic Motor Adaption requires only motor nameplate data and 2.7 seconds to measure the motor, cables and full installation characteristics to optimise the parameters; truly matching the drive to its load. The motor will then operate at the highest possible efficiency. One VLT® for all motors.

Installers now benefit from freedom of choice of motor technology (Motor Independency) and rapid commissioning utilising Danfoss Drives platforms.

Users benefit from the correct choice of motor technology for the application with the lowest possible cost of ownership, with a user friendly single drive platform throughout the plant room.

Danfoss Drives are not only used in prestigious buildings such as the Shard and the Gherkin in London, they are also in many other buildings. District heating plant in Hjørring in Denmark has achieved exceptionally low emission levels whilst being one of the most efficient plants of its kind in the world.

VLT® Refrigeration Drive FC103

Danfoss developed the first dedicated Refrigeration Drive in order to allow users in this market to benefit from the advantages of speed control in a simple, uncomplicated manner.

With functions specifically tailored for refrigeration technology, it can reduce the need for external control components while integrating easily into existing systems. Speed control improves the energy balance of the whole system, reducing life cycle costs and the environmental footprint.

VLT® FC103 meets the needs for all pump, fan and compressors used in refrigeration applications. Every application and power size can be operated and programmed with the same common user interface.

VLT® HVAC EC+ Concept

Proven EC+ technology in a single product platform for control of standard asynchronous, permanent magnetic and synchronous reluctance motors is now available to achieve the highest efficiency for all ventilation, fan and pump applications.

For further information, please refer to our page in the Technical Data section of the Notebook.

VLT® HVAC EC+ Concept

Proven EC+ technology in a single product platform for control of both standard asynchronous, permanent magnetic and synchronous reluctance motors is now available to achieve the highest efficiency for all ventilation, fan and pump applications.

Advantages of the EC+ Concept

  • Control multiple PM motors with only one VLT® HVAC Drive
  • Free choice of motor technology
  • Independent selection of motor supplier
  • Choose best in class motor, fan & drive
  • Installation & operation remain unchanged
  • Retro-fitting of existing systems still possible

Optimum System Efficiency

The only way to attain optimum system efficiency is to use the best possible individual components.

Users who wish to save a significant amount of energy need more than just efficient components – they need an efficient overall system.

Low-Cost Service

The EC+ concept is based on standardised components that the user can replace individually, ensuring maintenance and service costs are kept to a minimum.
