Legacy drives

  • Innovation is one of Danfoss Drives’ key strengths. We continually develop new application-optimized products that maximize process performance, save the most energy and minimize emissions. You’ll find below a list of VLT® and VACON® drives that that are no longer part of our active product portfolio. You’ll still have access to the technical documentation for these products, and our DrivePro® services continue to provide you with spare parts and services. DrivePro® Retrofit manages the end of a product’s lifecycle and provides professional help to replace your legacy drive and ensure a seamless transition to its successor product.
  • VLT® 2800

    VLT® 2800 drives are among the smallest multi-purpose drives in the market. Supplied with IP 20 enclosure as standard, the drives are ideal for panel mounting in areas where a high degree of protection is required. IP 20 enclosures also allow side-by-side installation without any need for extra cooling equipment.

    VLT® 2800 drives are available with or without an integral brake module or RFI filter.
    The quick menu includes all basic parameters needed for commissioning the drive, ensuring fast installation and servicing.

    Supply voltages and power range

    1 x 220-240 V...0.37-3.7 kW
    3 x 220-240 V...0.37-3.7 kW
    3 x 380-480 V...0.55-18.5 kW

    Successor product
    The VLT® Midi Drive FC 280 is more than just a successor; it is simply the best alternative. Beside the full backwards compatibility, it offers a number of additional functions which makes this new drive flexible, communicative, easy to use and the best fit for your application.

    VLT® Decentral Drive FCD 300

    The VLT® Decentral Drive FCD 300 is a complete frequency converter designed for decentralized drive installations. It can be mounted on the machine or on a wall close to the motor.

    The drive is supplied in a very robust enclosure, with a special paint treatment to withstand harsh environments and typical cleaning agents used in wash-down areas. Its design offers a smooth cleaning-friendly surface.

    It’s design reduces the requirement for central control panels and eliminates the need for space-consuming motor control cabinets. The necessity for long screened motor cables is significantly reduced.

    Supply voltages and power range
    3 x 380-480 V...0.37-3.3 kW

    Successor product
    As part of our active decentralized drive portfolio, the VLT® Decentral Drive FCD 302 offers the same robustness, and is also a perfect fit for all installations where hygienic design is a must.

    VLT® DriveMotor FCM 300

    The VLT® DriveMotor FCM 300 is an integrated drive-motor solution that combines a VLT® frequency converter and a high standard quality motor in a single product.

    The drive is attached in place of the motor terminal box. It is no higher than the standard terminal box and not wider or longer than the motor. It is available in a multitude of variants, individualized to meet customer requirements.

    The VLT® electronic motor control together with the motor totally eliminates motor cables and minimizes EMC problems. Heat from the drive is dissipated together with the motor heat.

    Supply voltages and power range
    3 x 380-480 V...0.55-7.5 kW

    Successor product
    When it comes to the need for a complete package that includes the drive and the motor or just a motor-mounted drive solution, either the VLT® DriveMotor FCM 106 or FCP 106 will be simply the best choice.

    VACON® 10

    The VACON® 10 is designed for applications where simplicity and efficiency are the key requirements.

    Fast installation and set-up are possible due to easy-access terminals, integral DIN rail mounting and the parameter copying tool which can clone settings without needing mains power.

    The space-saving design is a result of the unique cooling concept of the drive; a high-efficiency forced cooled heat sink is mounted directly onto the power semiconductors.

    Supply voltages and power range
    1 x 105-120 V…0.25-1.1 kW
    1 x 208-240 V...0.25-2.2 kW
    3 x 208-240 V...0.25-2.2 kW
    3 x 380-480 V...0.37-5.5 kW
    3 x 520-600 V…0.75-5.5 kW

    Successor product
    The VACON® 20 has an even longer list of features. And, thanks to the same hardware concept, it also shares the same voltage and power range, mounting dimensions and enclosure sizes for a perfect retrofit.

    VACON® NXL 

    The VACON® NXL is a powerful and compact AC drive for industrial and residential purposes.

    The space-saving bookshelf design with high protection classes, versatile control and programming capabilities offer an optimal solution for all operating environments. Installation, connection and commissioning procedures are extremely quick and convenient with instructions attached to the unit.

    The easy-to-use PC tools can be used, for example, for programming and parameter copying. The motor noise level is extremely low because of a high switching frequency and a near-sinusoidal current waveform.

    Supply voltages and power range
    1 x 208-240 V…0.37-1.5 kW
    3 x 208-240 V…0.37-1.5 kW
