Danfoss India, an industry leader focused on climate and energy-efficient solutions, unveiled its latest product to the variable frequency drives (VFDs) segment – an enclosed low harmonic drive with passive filters, at the Energy Efficiency Summit at Hyderabad, in the presence of Sergio Dario Barrientos, Ambassador of Bolivia; Pankaj Kumar, Secretary, Bureau of Energy Efficiency; Ravichandran Purushothaman, President, Danfoss India; and several other industry experts on energy efficiency.
The low harmonic drive, which is IEEE 519-2014 grid compliant is set to disrupt the power industry with its distinct feature to mitigate harmonic worries and achieve a total harmonic distortion of 5 per cent. The product will also help in reducing the energy consumption of external components and reduce the loss of energy in the process. The drive is also backed with a stable power network with low cost of maintenance.
Speaking on the launch of the product, Ravichandran Purushothaman, President - Danfoss Drives, said, “Over the last several decades, Danfoss Drives has been focused developing, manufacturing and supplying technologies whose strengths lie in its high-quality, application-optimised products and services with maximum process performance, energy savings and minimised emissions. With the launch of the new low harmonic drive, we seek to affirm our commitment to our customers and partners by engineering the best possible drive solutions without compromises and find the optimum outcome for their challenges.”
Danfoss’ drives can be utilised across industries such as marine and offshore, waste and wastewater management, HVAC, refrigeration, food and beverages industry, lifts and escalators management, mining and minerals industry, chemical industry and in the management of cranes and hoists, which highlights the versatility of the product. During the event, PL Palanisamy, Director, Danfoss Drives, said, “Danfoss Drives is passionate about the future where it seeks to capitalise its knowledge and expertise that has been built over the decades. In 2025, we estimate that more than 5 billion people (over 50 per cent of the estimated world population) will benefit directly or indirectly from the benefits provided by Danfoss Drives in their everyday lives with our installed base saving the annual equivalent of 60 hours of global energy consumption.”
