Choose between two keypads for your Danfoss Micro Drive - one with or without a potentiometer. Both versions are remote mountable, have an illuminated LCD display and a selection of navigation buttons. Previous Danfoss drive users will feel at home with the well-known matrix menu structure and quick menus. Easy to read large figures lets you see drive status from a distance.
Sometimes fitting everything into a control panel can seem like a game of Tetris. Thankfully the VLT Micro Drive is one of the smallest variable speed drives on the market. As well as being small it offers “side by side” mounting for additional space saving. Depending on your situation this could mean more drives in the same panel or a small panel for the same number of drives. Boffins at Danfoss have calculated up to 5% of the drive cost can be saved in reducing panel space.
With built-in DC and AC brake functions the VLT Micro Drive can transform kinetic energy in the application into braking power to slow down the motor. You will find a built-in brake chopper on any drive from 1.5kW and above. The RFI filter limits radio disturbance from motor cables.
Utlising a variable speed drive in a place where one hasn’t been used before is almost always guaranteed to save energy. With a VLT Micro Drive, there are a range of features to further optimise the energy saving. These AC drives are energy efficient up to 98% and when used in HVAC applications can save 5-15% energy thanks to the Automatic Energy Optimisation (AEO) feature.
The Smart Logic Controller is a simple but clever way to keep your drive, motor and application working together. With the controller you can add user specific functionality to your drive and monitor specified events. When an event occurs the controller performs a predefined actions and begins monitoring for the next predefined event. There are 20 steps of events. Logic functions can be selected and run independently from the sequence control. This enables drives to monitor variables or signal defined events in an easy and flexible way independently of the motor control.
The part number for your VLT Micro Drive inverter can be located on a label stuck to the top of the drive. This is the number we will need if you need us to supply a replacement drive, or the number you should use to search for prices online.
