Danfoss FC202

VLT® AQUA Variable Speed Drive

Available FC202 Stock in NZ

The VLT® AQUA Drive FC202 is designed to provide the highest level of performance of AC-motor-driven applications. Featuring a wide range of powerful standard features, which can be expanded with performance-improving options, the drive is equally suited to both new and retrofit projects. The new generation VLT AQUA Drive can realistically offer first-year cost savings of between 10–30% compared to traditional drive solutions. Its high lifetime availability and low energy consumption and maintenance costs provide you with the lowest cost of ownership.

The quick and user-friendly setup reduces installation time ensuring a fast route to maximum energy efficiency and motor control. By collecting the most important parameters in one place, the risk of incorrect configuration is reduced significantly.

Water and Wastewater Applications

The considerable daily load variation in water or wastewater treatment plants makes it economically feasible to introduce motor control on rotating equipment such as pumps and blowers.

Operating the FC202 in a closed loop mode with a pressure transducer causes the pump speed to vary in a manner to operate at a constant pressure, independent of flow requirements. Applications include Rural Irrigation and Town Water Supplies.

Flow transducer feedback can be used with the FC202 for flow limited operation.

The FC202 VFD is an ideal replacement for the older VLT6000 drives and VLT8000 drives.


Refrigeration Applications

Refrigeration Centrifugal and Screw Compressors can be used with the FC202 drive to regulate the compressor speed and optimise energy efficiencies.

Unrestricted Circulating fans can be controlled by FC202 drives to maximise efficiencies.

The FC202 VFD is an ideal replacement for the older VLT6000 drives and VLT8000 drives.


Industrial Variable Torque Applications

The VLT® AQUA Drive the perfect match for Industrial Variable Torque applications including fans, pumps, blowers, and compressors. It is a direct replacement for the FC 322 and VLT6000. Available in a wide range of industrial enclosures from protected chassis to IP 66 (NEMA 4 X Indoor).

For High Torque and Heavy Duty applications, use the FC302 Automation Drive>.

Features and benefits
- Assets are protected thanks to specially designed software that prevents, for example, water hammering.
- Energy efficiency is maximized as a result of the drives control algorithms and design which focus on reducing heat loss.
- High energy savings related to air conditioning are ensured due to the unique back-channel-cooling concept that transfers 90% of heat away from the room.
- Electromagnetic interference and harmonic distortion are reduced thanks to the built-in, scalable RFI filter and integrated DC link chokes.
- Perfect system integration and adaptation to the application are possible due to freely programmable warnings and alerts.
- 3–8% energy savings are achieved as a result of Automatic Energy Optimization.
