eaton dg1 variable frequency drive

Product Description

The DG1 general purpose drives are part of Eaton’s next generation PowerXL Series of adjustable frequency drives specifically engineered for today’s more demanding commercial and industrial applications. The power unit makes use of the most sophisticated semiconductor

technology and a highly modular construction that can be flexibly adapted to meet the customer’s needs. The control module was designed to include today’s standard communication protocols and I/O while still having the modularity to add additional option cards. Eaton’s patented Active Energy Control is also a standard feature on DG1 drives, offering customers increased efficiency, safety and reliability. These drives continue the tradition of robust performance and raise the bar on features and functionality, ensuring the best solution at the right price.
