By Alyssa Dalton
July 5, 2011 – Cooper Crouse-Hinds boasts that its new ACE Series Explosionproof Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) are the only NEMA 7 VFD solution that can be safely and reliably installed in Class I, Division 1 or 2 hazardous areas. This, according to Cooper Crouse-Hinds, results in reduced installation cost and energy consumption. Currently available up to 60HP, the VFD features a NEMA 7 enclosure with patent pending active cooling technology that allows a VFD to be housed inside the classified enclosure without the risk of overheating and failing.
