Date: June 02, 2014

Tailored performance for increased efficiency

To further increase the capability of the micro-drive product portfolio, we are introducing two simple and rugged VFD families: The PowerXL DC1 and The PowerXL DA1 VFD.

The PowerXL DC1 VFD is a compact full featured VFD that is simple to mount and use. Constant torque ratings make the DC1 ideal for conveyors, packaging machines, pumps and fans. Unique capabilities include single phase output and Eaton SmartWire-DT connectivity. The DC1 is perfect for quick commissioning and ideal for panel builders and machinery OEMs.

The PowerXL DA1 is the perfect match for demanding OEM applications. High-performance processor, safe torque off, detachable terminal blocks, multiple fieldbus protocols including SmartWire-DT and sensorless vector control, are standard features that demanding customers expect. In addition, optional closed loop and permanent magnet motor control make the DA1 capable of handling the most advanced applications.
