VLT® AutomationDrive FC300-Image

Engineered for design simplicity and high performance

The VLT AutomationDrive represents a single drive concept that controls the entire range of operations from standard to servo motors 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. With the VLT AutomationDrive series we have intelligent plug-and-play technology and unmatched reliability making drive operation pure childs play.

Complete Range of Drives

  • From 1/3 to 1200 HP
  • Chassis, NEMA/UL Type 1, 12

Features and User Benefits

Smart logic controller
A Smart Logic Controller built into the standard drives offers a wide range of essential PLC functions, while the optional VLT Programmable Logic Controller MCO enables complete PLC functionality.

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.

Hot Pluggable 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 aluminum 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 aluminum base. An air-guiding screen passes air from the fan past the electronics for additional cooling.
