VLT® Decentral Drive FCD 302

Features and Benefits

The new Decentral Drive FCD 302 is based on the VLT AutomationDrive FC 302 platform and combines the key features of both products in a completely re-designed enclosure, made for best fit for direct machine mounting. The unique design is intended to simplify ordering, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance. 
Power range 
0.37 – 3.3 kW, 380–480 V
The VLT® Decentral Drive FCD 302 is the perfect solution for: 
• Conveyor applications 
• Installation in wash-down areas 
• Widely distributed applications with large number of drives in Food & Beverage and material handling industries. 

One Box Concept 
It’s really that simple - everything needed to control the motor is contained within the IP66/ Type 4X drive enclosure. No need for an external 24 V DC power supply, no need for an external controller or motor switch – it’s all in the FCD302. 
All options are built as part of the unit, reducing the number of boxes to be mounted, connections and terminations in the installation. Consequently labour costs in mounting hours and risk of failures are dramatically reduced. 

Minimise installation costs 
With fewer numbers of boxes to be mounted, in fewer locations, that’s a saving in time and man-hours.
Fewer cables makes for less time and cost and less money spent on cable management systems. 

Fewer connections and terminations also reduces labour cost at installation and lowers the likelihood of failure due to poor connections. 

Reducing order handling 
Ordering is simplified since there is a limited number of ordering lines. This means there is less maintenance of purchasing orders and reduced risk of ordering the wrong parts – or missing parts altogether. 

At good receiving there are fewer parts to check-in so less time taken to compare delivery to original order, less risk of missing parts, fewer inventory locations and less space required for storage.
