VLT® Low Harmonic Drive from Danfoss Drives Named 2010 Design News Golden Mousetrap Finalist

VLT® Low Harmonic Drive from Danfoss Drives Named 2010 Design News Golden Mousetrap Finalist
VLT® Low Harmonic Drives from Danfoss Drives have been named a 2010 Design News Golden Mousetrap Award Finalist in the Motion Control/Automation category. VLT Low Harmonic Drives don’t merely reduce or mask current distortion; they attack it at the source by performing real time analysis and actively imposing currents, as needed, to restore and ensure the highest possible quality sine waves from the power supply grid. They also feature a modular design that facilitates large scale and cost effective production, and since most VLT Low Harmonic Drives are individually configured according to the customer’s specific needs, they deliver the value of a highly customized quality drive for the price of a mass produced unit.
