VACON AC drives for marine and offshore applications
The fuel economy and smooth control of various processes onboard speak for the use of variable speed AC drives in the highly competitive marine and offshore sector. For years, Vacon has been establishing strong partnerships with leading system integrators in the field. Therefore we can offer robust AC drive solutions to all your needs, from simple ventilation to the most demanding load sharing in high-power propeller and steering gear systems.
Reduce emissions and noise in ports and on ships with grid converter technology.
The limits of the worlds natural resources dominate our times, and the marine industry is taking on the same challenges as everybody else regarding energy usage. VACON® NXP Grid Converter technology helps ship owners and port authorities reduce fuel intake and improve efficiency. This will please investors and environmental legislators alike after all, lower energy consumption equals lower costs.
VACON® 20 – possibilities and performance.
The VACON® 20 AC drive comes packed with functionality and possibilities to bring any machine control to a completely new level. The compact size in combination with a wide power range is the base, but the VACON® 20’s possibilities do not end there. A built-in PLC functionality, which is one of the most flexible on the market, makes this product adapt to every task and bring cost savings to the user.
Save costs and space with decentral AC drives.
Decentral drive solutions enable engineers and machine designers to save on costs and space. VACON® 100 X and VACON® 20 X manage to combine IP66/Type 4X outdoor enclosure protection with a compact design, which means they can be mounted directly onto the motor, machine or wherever the most efficient location for the drive is.
Quiet. Compact. Cool.
VACON® NXP Liquid Cooled AC drives are the ultimate in space-saving, high power density AC drives. They are well suited for locations where air-cooling is difficult, expensive or impractical such as onboard ships or in locations aff ected by altitude, or simply where installation space is at a premium. Their robust, modular design makes the VACON® NXP a suitable platform for all drive needs in demanding applications and are available in the power range from 7.5 to 5300 kW at 380-690 VAC supply voltages.
