Danfoss Drives, a provider of AC drive technology, has expanded its medium-voltage solutions portfolio with the new VACON 1000 medium-voltage drive. Based on Danfoss’ unsurpassed experience in advanced AC drive technologies, the VACON 1000 air-cooled MV drive is the preferred choice for industrial medium-voltage general purpose applications, especially for variable torque loads such as pumps and fans.

Available in voltages from 2.4 kV up to 11 kV, the VACON 1000 offers the smallest footprint in the medium-voltage drive industry below 215 A for an air-cooled MV drive. Its stand-alone design allows for simple and safe installation and fast commissioning, while its modular design ensures easy spare parts management and maintenance. Well-equipped basic configuration can be amplified with a wide range of options.

Power range:

  •    -   2400-3000 VAC: 150-3530 kVA
  •    -   3300-4160 VAC: 210-4900 kVA
  •    -   6000-6900 VAC: 375-8130 kVA
  •    -   10000-11000 VAC: 625-12960 kVA


Built for reliability, the VACON 1000 features a high MTBF that enables up to 200,000 hours of non-stop operation, detailed fault monitoring for reduced downtime and a redundant cooling fan option that protects against fan failures. 

Other features and benefits of the VACON 1000 include:

  •    -   Fast commissioning and start-up, thanks to 100 percent burn-in testing prior to shipping
  •    -   Easy selections for a wide variety of configurations
  •    -   Front access only that allows for easy installation, service, and maintenance
  •    -   Designs with distinct input and output voltage levels reducing additional needs for extra power transformers


According to applicable IEC and UL standards, the VACON 1000 also complies with international medium-voltage drive safety requirements. 

“Energy efficiency is a key lever as the world searches for ways to reduce energy consumption in a fast and intelligent way. Studies show that we could reduce energy consumption up to 8 percent by installing variable speed drives in all suitable pump, fan, and compressor applications,” says Dan Isaksson, head of medium-voltage drives at Danfoss Drives. “The new VACON 1000 air-cooled medium-voltage variable speed drive is ideally suited for these applications and complements the VACON 3000 liquid-cooled medium-voltage drive as well as Danfoss’ vast offering of low-voltage drives, allowing users of variable speed drives the ability to choose the optimal solution for their medium-voltage drive needs from Danfoss.”

ABB CavitationCavitation can be a serious issue for industry. It causes damage to pumping systems, reducing their lifetime and requiring costly maintenance and replacement, while in the beverage and dairy industry it can impact the quality of products being pumped. This article outlines the causes of cavitation and explains how the latest variable speed drives (VSDs) offer an efficient and cost-effective method to prevent it.

Cavitation can occur in many different pumping applications, but it is a particular challenge for the water and wastewater industry where a high number of large pumps are deployed. The result is an increased risk of downtime and higher maintenance costs.
