PowerXL DM1 Micro VFD


PowerXL DM1 micro variable frequency drives (VFD) are engineered for demanding commercial and machinery OEM applications. With an energy efficiency algorithm, high short-circuit current rating, and robust design, the DM1 offers increased efficiency, safety, reliability, and features that improve integration and ease of use. The drive provides value, control, and protection for electric motor applications less than 30hp including HVAC, pumping, material handling, and more.


The design of the PowerXL DM1 focuses on safety, including higher short circuit combination ratings with resettable short circuit protective devices. The PowerXL DM1 is the first VFD under UL61800-5-1 to achieve meaningful SCCR combination ratings and has a SIL 2 rating built-in to eliminate the need for costly relays and contactors. With On-board Safe Torque Off (STO) capability there is no need to purchase additional option cards.


The easy-to-operate device includes Bluetooth access for simple remote programming to safely make updates as well as check parameter values and fault history without de-energizing or employing a certified tech with arc flash PPE.


Energy savings can be increased by up to 10% above a standard VFD with Active Energy Control, an energy optimization algorithm that comes standard in the PowerXL DM1. Control for high-efficiency motors reduces overall system energy consumption by leveraging high-efficiency motors, such as IE3 and IE4 asynchronous motors, surface, and interior permanent magnet motors, and brushless DC motors.
