VACON® 3000

  • Individually tailored to meet the toughest MV requirements

    Heavy duty industries face some of the most complex and competitive engineering environments on the planet. Your industry and your applications demand adaptability in MV drives, where reliability, robustness, space and weight are crucial – and downtime is a disaster.

    The VACON® 3000 is the only MV drive available, which accommodates flexible arrangements, straightforward system integration and easy maintenance.
    The modular advantage
    This range of modular medium-voltage (MV) drives empowers systems integrators and OEMs, delivering a whole new approach to attaining the ultimate in performance, exactly tailored to the needs of each application.


    Danfoss Drives works with selected, qualified partners to push the boundaries of the medium-voltage drives market to deliver something you have never seen before.
    This means that when owning or running a system with medium-voltage drives installed, you can discuss your needs in depth with our Medium Voltage Partners, to define a design encompassing the ultimate and exact characteristics you expect of an MV drive.

    Features and benefits

    Modular concept

    • Facilitates flexible, compact solutions for space-sensitive applications

    Simplified pre-charge unit design

    • Get a fast, safe power up, over and over again
    • Needs no pre-charging resistors, and limits the inrush current

    Flexible front end configuration options

    • Diode Front End (DFE) based 12-pulse configuration
    • Other variants available on request including dynamic brake chopper unit
    • Active Front End (AFE) option for regenerative braking and low harmonics

    Easy to operate, with the familiar VACON® interface and Ethernet connectivity.

    Simple to build in

    • Integrated filters and chokes for fewer components
    • Single-phase modules with grounded heatsink simplify service
    • Compact and robust, liquid-cooled modules


    Use VACON® 3000 medium-voltage drives in the heavy industrial sector, which requires performance up to the high megawatt range: ship building, mining, Oil and gas, raw materials, chemical and petrochemical, and cement industries.


    The VACON® 3000 portfolio is continually expanding. For detailed technical data and product availability, please contact your local Danfoss medium-voltage specialist.
