Press release date: January 16, 2014

The global AC drives manufacturer Vacon launches a new product range - VACON® NXP System Drive - during the company's Drives Conference in Dubai, UAE on 16 January 2014. The new product range of standardized AC drives offers customers cost-efficiency, reliability and uniform quality. The system integrators focusing on heavy industry customers can make complex solutions simple with a wide variety of standardized drive modules.

"The VACON NXP System Drive is based on standardized modules, processes and tools as well as on a tested and verified enclosure design. Yet the product is configurable with the help of pre-engineered and tested options. Configurability is one of the product's most compelling features. Furthermore, we can customize the product according to specific customer needs," says Jari Marjo, Vacon's Marketing Director for Premium Drives.

The new product range simplifies installation and commissioning as well as provides end-users with significant life-time benefits, such as decreased maintenance costs and minimized needs for spare parts and training.

The VACON NXP System Drive is based on the VACON NXP and VACON Common DC bus products, which include a large variety of modules in a wide power range. The system drive product range is available in various IP ratings, and CE and UL certifications provide an external verification for the product. The control and power sections of the AC drive are separated, which is an important safety feature. In addition, a wide range of pre-engineered options such as supply units, fieldbus interfaces, and inverter modules are available.

Vacon has a long and proven track record in project business and in providing engineering services globally. As an independent company focusing 100% on AC drives, Vacon does not compete with its partners.

"Vacon is a partner which is easy to work with, and we want to further enhance our cooperation with partners. The VACON NXP System Drive will improve our ability to serve our partners, to be more responsive and able to provide a broader scope of delivery. This allows our partners to focus on the overall solutions while we focus on the AC drives, where we are the experts," Marjo explains.

"To put it simply, VACON NXP System Drive will make complex solutions simple with standardization, and standardized modules bring reliability and improve the total cost of ownership," concludes Marjo.
