Motor mounted solution
The VLT® Drive Motor FCM 106 is a complete drive and motor package capable of driving both asynchronous and permanent magnet motors. Besides being offered as a combined package, the electronics can also be purchased on their own and fitted to the motor of the customer’s own choice.

Dedicated solution launches this summer
With the integrated pump features and EC+ controls, the VLT DriveMotor FCM 106 is a highly dedicated product for the pump industry. The new space saving alternative to industrial pump drives in the 0.55-22kW range will be launched this summer.

Automatic adaptation to any motor
The DriveMotor provides customers with a new level of flexibility, as the drive automatically sets the optimal parameters for any attached motor; providing stable, energy efficient operation. Furthermore, this is the first motor mounted solution that enables any pump manufacturer to control their motors with the same drive; without requiring special adaptations. It is the perfect solution for pump manufacturers, who often rely on custom made motors.

Installation friendly design
The FCM 106 is pre-mounted to the pump or fan motor before delivery. This reduces both installation costs and complexity significantly, eliminating cabinets and motor cables. Integrated cooling and an individually adjustable adaptor plate makes implementation very simple. The drive will be UL Type 4X approved for outdoor installation also in the North American market.

IE4 efficiency
Danfoss’ new DriveMotor promises significantly improved performance over its predecessor, the VLT®DriveMotor FCM 300; and complies with both IE3 and IE4 (IEC (CD) 60034-30 Ed.2) efficiency requirements.

Attach frequency converter to any motor
For those who prefer to choose their own motor, the inverter component; VLT®DriveMotor FCP 106,can be ordered individually and fitted with an adaptor plate. Setup is easy with Danfoss VLT®Motion Control Tool MCT10.
