Danfoss FC 300 VLT Automation Drive

Danfoss FC300 VLT Automation DriveThe VLT® AutomationDrive represents a single drive concept that controls the entire range of operations from ordinary to servo like applications on any machine or production line.The modular open-technology platform, on which the VLT® AutomationDrive is built, makes it exceptionally adaptable and programmable.

Its configurable, user-friendly interface supports local languages and letters.

The VLT® AutomationDrive series offer an intelligent plug-and-play technology and unmatched reliability making drive operation pure childs play.

Local control of the VLT® AutomationDrive is done by a local control panel.  This is plugged in directly or connected through a cable.  The control panel can also be connected directly to a PC for service or commissioning.

The VLT® AutomationDrive can be remote commissioned and monitored through a USB plugable cable or bus communication. Special software is available: Wizards, data transfer tool, VLT set-up software MCT 10 and language changer.

FC300 Range

0.37 – 800 kW (380 – 500 V)
0.75 – 75 KW (525 – 600V)
37 kW – 1.4 MW (525 – 690V)


The drive meets requirements for enclosure class IP 20/Chassis. Optional IP21/NEMA 1, IP55/NEMA 12, IP 54/NEMA12 or IP66 NEMA 4x.

Smart logic controller

The VLT® AutomationDrive features logic control functions and a sequence control based on events and actions.


The VLT® AutomationDrive comes standard with the safe stop functionality suitable for category 3 installations according to EN 954-1. This feature prevents the drive from starting unintended.

Danfoss FC300 LCP

Danfoss Local Control Panel

Hot plugable LCP

The Local Control Panel (LCP) can be plugged in or out during operation. Settings are easily transferred via the control panel from one drive to another or from a PC with set-up software.

Intelligent heat management

Cooling can take place in two ways to offer different sets of benefits. Forced convection cooling: A fan blows cold air through the cooling ribs of the aluminium base to remove heat. The channel is easily cleaned without touching electronics. Cold plate cooling: External cooling is possible through the back side of the aluminium base. Panel through mounting: Electronics inside cabinet – power heat sink outside cabinet. Duct cooling: Air from the control room – or from outside – cools the heatsink without contact to the electronics.


For the VLT® AutomationDrive FC 302 a wide selection of accessories is available to suit your needs. For further details see Operation Instruction.


Options for bus communication, synchronisation, user programs, etc., are delivered ready to plug-and-play.
