VECTOPOWER inverters – We get the most out of your machines

The VECTOPOWER range is your efficient solution for power electronics!

The VECTOPOWER product family consists of inverters that connect the electric motor with the energy source. Their basic function is to regulate current and voltage for the electric motor, thus determining speed and torque. Inverters do this by converting direct current into 3-phase alternating current or vice versa, without mechanically moving parts.

Whether you are realizing a traction drive in a car, a locomotive, or a ship; implementing a mobile generator; or helping an excavator to turn faster – the VECTOPOWER is the inverter for efficiently implementing such projects.

With the VECTOPOWER products, ARADEX provides extremely efficient and versatile inverters that cover all possible current conversion variants, depending on the product type. Most VECTOPOWER product types can even be used in parallel for several conversion variants. Efficiency improvements, especially in partial-load operation, are a major goal of VECTOPOWER inverters. In combination with the ARADEX motor VECTOMOTOR, they achieve a very good efficiency of over 95% in the partial-load range. This high efficiency is attained by electrically executing operations that were originally mechanical. This has the advantage that at least some of the energy remains in the system and can be fed back into the battery – e.g., when a braking action is carried out by the inverter and the energy is not lost as heat but is partially preserved in the scope of recuperation.

The VECTOPOWER is optimized for mobile applications from 20 kW and can therefore be used in all types of electrified utility vehicles, construction machines, or even ships. Due to its robustness, the VECTOPOWER inverter has also proven its worth in stationary applications where harsh ambient conditions (such as severe vibrations, high temperatures) prevail.
