Drive Designed for Extremes

Danfoss announced a new version of its VLT AutomationDrive, which the company described as modular, adaptable and fit for any environment. It features compact generation D- and E-enclosures. Operational temperature range spans -25°C to 50°C. The solution is designed to be rugged enough for challenging environments and applications, the company reported. The VLT Automation Drive features both hardware and software enhancements that maximize performance and provide a level of application flexibility that truly boosts a business, Danfoss reported. The Integrated motion controller provides advanced functionality to perform high-precision positioning or synchronization with asynchronous or PM motors with or without an encoder connection. Additionally, the Motion Control Options provide a way to replace mechanical controls with intelligent, energy- saving electronic solutions. It’s possible to add electronic cam control with the VLT Motion Control Option MCO 305, reducing system and maintenance costs, or increase the capacity of applications such as palletizers with the VLT Synchronizing Controller MCO 350, Danfoss reported. The solution is designed to be optimized to remedy or minimize safety concerns. Further, it is fully equipped for Industry 4.0. It features: web-based configuration, EDI, and transparent order management; tailor-made documentation dependent on application needs; embedded intelligence and functional safety; and interface-to cloud- based data transmission.
