Compact drive systems combine high energy and resource efficiency with remarkable flexibility. Compared to separate units, they offer various advantages: The inverter is mounted directly on the motor, which means there is no need for separate mounting surfaces. The standard high vibration resistance and protection class ensure a long service life, while no output filter is required and only unshielded power cables are required. The effort required for assembly, installation and commissioning is minimal.

The VEMoDRIVE Compact drive system is available with a variety of options, comparable to classic drive systems consisting of motor and frequency converter. For the inverter, these options include external control units, type of mains supply (400V 3~ and 230V 1~), communication interfaces such as bus interfaces as well as input, output and control modules. There are various options available for the motor, such as design, protection class, external fan and brake. On request, the brake control can also be integrated into the converter.
