VLT® Decentral FCD 300
The VLT FCD 300 is a complete frequency converter designed for decentral mounting.
The FCD 300 can be mounted on the wall close to the motor, or directly on the motor. The FCD 300 comes in a high enclosure class, IP66, to withstand normal cleaning methods.
The design offers a smooth cleaning friendly surface without any spots difficult to clean. The FCD 300 comes in a robust painted surface. The decentral design reduce need for central control panels and space-consuming motor control cabinets are eliminated. Reduced need for wiring long screened motor cables.
