  • High Power Drives
    High power modular drives

    Powerdrive F300’s modular offering gives you never before seen flexibility in building compact, reliable high-power solutions. Paralleled together, Powerdrive F300 can control asynchronous and synchronous motors up to 2.8 MW (4,200 hp). At the top of the modular drives range, the Frame 12 is a 500 kW (700 hp) single module that delivers unmatched power density, while keeping both footprint and system costs to a minimum. The modules can be paralleled together into a wide range of flexible solutions to solve all system needs, including Active Front End and multi-pulse rectifier configurations.

    Efficient system build

    Designing and building a high power drive cubicle takes immense engineering knowhow. Most people don’t have that expertise in-house, but we do. And we’ve put it all into our DFS freestanding drives. The cubicle system is designed to make the most of our high power modular drives, benefiting the applications that need them the most. The results are maximum energy efficiency in an ingress protected package. Our cubicle drives come pre-assembled, easy to set up, with all necessary system components included. Furthermore, we can ship your Freestanding drive to you with a very short lead time, saving weeks on typical industry standards.
