Lowest cost of ownership
VLT® HVAC Drives let you:
- Save energy
The VLT® HVAC Drive includes:
– 98% basic energy efficiency
– Sleep Mode
– Automatic Energy Optimisation
– Flow compensation
- Save money
The modular design and a host of options allows for a low initial investment and low cost upgrades according to future needs.
The VLT® HVAC Drive, built on Danfoss’ new modular plug-and-play platform and dedicated to HVAC applications, makes HVAC operation child’s play.
Operators, equipment and control systems all communicate effortlessly with the VLT® HVAC Drive. It is fluent in all common BMS network protocols and displays every alphabet. 27 languages, including English, German, Mandarin and Cantonese are available.
The award-winning Local Control Panel constantly improves on the intuitive man-machine interface. Automatic Motor Adaptation and Automatic Energy Optimisation support fast commissioning.
Due to a series of self-protecting and monitoring features and a highly durable mechanical design, the VLT® HVAC Drive is practically maintenance free.
Due to its small size, the VLT® HVAC Drive is easily mounted inside a HVAC unit or panel.
- Fire override mode – Fire Override Mode helps keep fire escape routes free of smoke, over-rides the drives’s self-protecting features and keeps the fan running as long as possible in the event of fire.
- Save cabinet : Protection class IP55 requires no cabinet.
Dedicated to HVAC
Danfoss has unequalled experience in advanced drive technologies for HVAC applications.
This experience has been used to optimise features in the VLT® HVAC Drive and make it the perfect match for pumps, fans and water chillers (compressors) in buildings fitted with sophisticated HVAC solutions.
Unleash the Full Potential of HVAC
The VLT® HVAC Drive is available in a range of versions, from a basic serial communication and I/O configuration capable right up to a fully equipped and personalized drive, including all relevant HVAC I/O points and protocols. Delivered from factory. No extra assembly work on-site!
50° C ambient temperature
The robust VLT® HVAC Drive is designed to work at maximum output in an ambient temperature up to 50° C.
Suitable for “slave” operation
The drive’s modular structure makes it suitable for “slave” operation mastered by BMS, PLC’s or DDCs.
VLT® HVAC Drive provides intelligent stand-alone functionality via:
- Built-in Real Time Clock
- Programmable actions
- Smart Logic Controller
- 4 auto-tuned PID controllers.
Automatic Energy Optimisation
The standard feature AEO provides optimized motor magnetisation at all speeds and loads. This increases energy efficiency by 5-15% at partial loads.
Significant energy savings and reduced installation costs are provided by flow compensation in both fan and pumps systems. A pressure sensor mounted close to the fan or pump provides a reference enabling pressure to be kept constant at the discharge end of the system. The drive constantly adjusts the pressure reference to follow the system curve.
The VLT® HVAC Drive provides a complete range of energy consumption information. Choose to divide absolute energy consumption into hours, days or weeks. Or choose to monitor a load profile for the application.
This data can even be uploaded to a VLT® Energy Box – PC software that performs in-depth real life/true energy analysis of your application and displays the payback time for the drive.
