VF-nC3 Nanodrive

The compact class


VF-nC3 Nanodrive

The VF-nC3 excels at its compactness, simple installation and easy start-up. Settings are easily done with the convenient jog dial.
Its sensorless vector control ensures an excellent efficiency of your drive and makes it suitable also for dynamic applications. The tolerance of the reaction time to external signals is constant and as low as ±1 ms – the VF-nC3 controls the drive with high efficiency and repeat accuracy.
Due to its integrated high attenuation EMC filters it can be operated in any environment.

  • Extremely compact
  • EMC filter C1
  • Easy configuration
  • PID control, logic functions AND, OR
  • RS485 interface
  • Quick stop
