Wide power range

The Vacon 20 is available in a wide power range up to 18.5kW /25 HP. In currents above 16A the drive is available with a built-in harmonic filtering choke for public networks according to IEC61000-3-12.

Cutting-edge performance

Machinery performance is very much dependent on the performance of the AC drive. In the Vacon 20 we have done our best to cut cycle times and maximize the control performance of the drive. The built-in RS-485 interface offers a cost effective and simple serial control interface for the drive. With optional modules, the Vacon 20 can be connected to almost any fieldbus system including CANOpen, DeviceNet and Profibus DP.

The Vacon 20 is designed for efficient volume manufacturing where every second in installation and configuration time counts. Easy access terminals, built-in DIN rail mounting and the MCA parameter copying tool which can clone settings without main power in the drive are all examples of features that help reduce start-up time.
