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.

  

  

  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
