Variable frequency drive installation requirements

Variable frequency drives are electronic devices, they have stringent requirements in installation environment which is specified in its user manual normally. In exceptional circumstances, if it does not meet these requirements, we must adopt appropriate suppression measures: vibration is the main reason to cause electronic devices mechanical damaged, for big shock and vibration occasions, we should use rubber anti-vibration measures; moisture, corrosion gas and dust will cause electronic devices such as corrosion, poor connection, insulation reduced and then cause short circuit, as a precautionary measure, we should do dust treatment and corrosion control for the control panel, and adopt closed structure; temperature is the key factor to affect electronic devices life and reliability, especially semiconductor devices, we should install the variable frequency drive according to its required installation environment or install additional air conditioning and avoid direct sunlight.

In addition to the above points, inspect the variable frequency drives air filter and cooling fan periodic is also very necessary. For special alpine occasions, to avoid the microprocessor can't work properly due to temperature too low, we should take necessary measures such as setting the air heater.
