Vacon® 3000

Individually Tailored to Meet the Toughest Medium Voltage (MV) Requirements.

Heavy duty industries face some of the most complex and competitive engineering environments on the planet. Your industry and your applications demand adaptability in MV drives, where reliability, robustness, space, and weight are crucial – and downtime is a disaster.  The VACON® 3000 is the only MV drive available, which accommodates flexible arrangements, straightforward system integration, and easy maintenance.

The modular advantage

This range of modular medium-voltage (MV) drives empowers systems integrators and OEMs, delivering a whole new approach to attaining the ultimate in performance, precisely tailored to the needs of each application.


Danfoss Drives works with selected, qualified partners to push the boundaries of the medium-voltage drives the market to deliver something you have never seen before. This means that when owning or running a system with medium-voltage drives installed, you can discuss your needs in depth with our Medium Voltage Partners, to define a design encompassing the ultimate and exact characteristics you expect of an MV drive.
