The Vacon NXP is a state-of-art variable speed AC drive for use in all applications where robustness, dynamic performance, precision and power are required in the power range from 0.75 to 3,250 kW.
The quality and reliability of a machine or a process is in most cases the result of a precise and dynamic control of AC motors. The Vacon NXP has been designed to provide the best possible control under all circumstances and thus to ensure a high operational quality and availability for the entire lifetime of the system.
A forerunner in designing and manufacturing AC drives, Vacon has developed innovative solutions and leading-edge technology for demanding applications and high powers. By bringing these solutions to the customer the Vacon NXP offers new opportunities and helps to create the best and most innovative products and to reach the most challenging targets.

Wall-mounted Vacon NXP
For the lower power range the Vacon NXP AC drives are available in a compact IP21 or IP54 enclosure. It is one of the most compact and complete drives on the market with all necessary components integrated into one single enclosure.
The wall-mounted units are equipped with internal EMC filtering, and the power electronics is integrated into an all-metal frame. The smaller frame sizes (FR4-FR6) have an integrated brake chopper as standard, and the 380-500 V units can be equipped with an integrated brake resistor. The larger frames (FR7-FR9) can be equipped with an integrated brake chopper as standard/option.
Stand-alone Vacon NXP
High-power Vacon NXP drives are also available in a compact stand-alone IP21 or IP54 enclosure. These units are designed for use in applications where the drive has to be compact and easy to install. The Vacon NXP stand-alone drives are fully enclosed at the factory and are ready for installation immediately. The drive has integrated fuses as standard and no extra protections are required by the drive. It is also possible to equip the drive with an optional integrated load switch which further simplifies the handling in the field.
IP00 Vacon NXP modules
The Vacon NXP high-power IP00 drive modules are intended for installation into a separate enclosure. Thanks to the robust and square-shaped design of the module, the enclosure design is easy and straightforward.
Vacon NXP control
The Vacon NXP offers a high-performance control platform for all demanding drive applications. There are five slots (A, B, C, D and E) for I/O boards, and a suitable board can be selected for each slot.
An external +24 V supply option enables communication with the control unit even if the mains supply is switched off (e.g. for fieldbus communication and parameter setting). The Vacon NXP supports both induction motors and permanent magnet motors in open and closed loop control modes. The Vacon NXP also supports special motors such as high-speed motors.
For closed loop control encoder, feedback from an incremental pulse encoder is normally used. It is also possible to use absolute encoders as the Vacon NXP is available with EnDat and resolver interfaces.
A fast drive-to-drive communication is possible by using Vacon’s fast SystemBus fiber optic communication.
