What does VSDS Stand for?
Variable Speed Drives
What is a soft starter?
Soft Starters are designed to temporarily reduce the load and torque in the powertrain and electric current surge of the motor during start-up. ControlStore has a wide variety of Danfoss Soft Starters to meet your needs.
What Ingress Protection (IP) is right for my installation?
When selecting your Danfoss drive ensure you select the right Ingress Protection (IP) for the longevity of your VSD.
- Cabinet installation is IP20 and IP21
- Standard plant room wall installation is IP54 and IP55
- Extreme environment installation IP66
What is a EMC Filter?
EMC filters are differential-mode low-pass filters that suppress the switching frequency component from the drive and smooth out the phase-to-phase output voltage of the drive to become sinusoidal. This reduces the motor insulation stress and bearing currents.
What is a variable speed drive?
Variable speed drives (VSDs), also called adjustable speed drives (ASDs), are devices that can vary the speed of a normally fixed speed motor. In HVAC systems, they are used primarily to control fans in variable air volume systems instead of other devices such as inlet vanes and discharge dampers.
