Ready To Use High Power Cubicle Drives

For many drive users, designing and building a high power drive cubicle requires extensive in house engineering expertise that they do not have.

The DFS Drive is a pre-assembled, ready to install drive cubicle system designed for use in high power applications where energy saving and high ingress protection are key. With fast, easy installation, plant availability is maximised with virtually zero requirement from your engineering resource.

Introducing The High Power Cubicle Drives 

 

High Power Cubicle Drives


Ready to use: Easy set-up
  • industry standard cubicles which integrate with your existing installation 
  • Includes power disconnect and fuses
  • Pre-installed options available
  • Water cooling is available on request

Straightforward set-up & commissioning
    Commissioning is made easy with a door mounted multi-language HMI
  • Enhanced diagnostics thanks to the real time clock
  • Connect PC tool for optimum commissioning:
    i. Loaded with parameter management features, including
    cloning
    ii. Easy-to-read dynamic logic diagrams so you can visualise
    and manage the drive in real time

Fast delivery
The generous 30kB user space allows for add-on programmable functions, more elaborate I/O features and special software that enables greater machine control. The on-board PLC also eliminates the need for an external controller, saving both on cost and space.
