Vacon 100 Multipurpose AC drives

It may look like a traditional AC drive – but it’s not! The Vacon 100 is bursting with smart new features including functional safety with Safe Torque Off, Safe Stop 1, and ATEX certified motor over-temperature protection. The Vacon 100 also has a unique feature with built-in Ethernet to make integration to plant automation easy and efficient via integrated ModBus TCP, Ethernet I/P or Profinet IO.

The Vacon 100 is ideal for a wide range of applications including pumps, fans, compressors and conveyors. These are applications where energy efficiency and productivity improvements often result in a rapid return on project investments. Available in power ranges from 1.1 to 160 kW, the wall-mountable drive modules are easy to install and operate, with IP21 provided as standard and optional IP54 models. Vacon 100 allows you to do much more than you would expect from a standard drive.

User Friendly Keypad

Vacon have ensured the user interface is simple and intuitive to use. Utilising a graphical well-structured menu system allows for fast commissioning and trouble-free operation.

Safe Torque OffSafe Torque Off (STO) prevents the drive from generating torque on the motor shaft and prevents unintentional start-ups. The function also corresponds to an uncontrolled stop in accordance with stop category 0, EN60204-1.

Safe Stop 1Safe Stop 1 (SS1) initiates motor deceleration and initiates the STO function after an application specific time delay. The function also corresponds to a controlled stop in accordance with stop category 1, EN 60204-1.

The advantage of the integrated STO and SS1 safety options compared to standard safety technology using electromechanical switchgear is the elimination of separate components and the effort required to wire and service them, while still maintaining the required level of safety.
