MCD-100 features and benefits

Filed under: GET MCD-100 series — Ralf @ 3:11 AM

Danfoss VLT Softstarter MCD-100



The MCD-100 series is the most cost effective and extremely compact Softstarter solution for motors up to 11KW due to a very unique semiconductor design.

MCD-100 is a true “fit and forget” product. Selection can be simply made on the basis of the motor power, exactly as with traditional contactors.

MCD-100 products provide timed voltage ramp up and voltage ramp down. Ramp times can be individually adjusted easily with rotary switches from 0.4 to 10 seconds.

The starting torque can be also adjusted from 0 to 85% of the direct online (D.O.L.) torque.

This little babies are a perfect match for all smaller sized standard applications such as but not limited to pumps, fans, compressors, mixers, conveyors and of course many more.

The power range is clearly defined to be 1.5KW or below with the use of the MCD-100-001, 7.5KW and below with the model MCD-100-007 and a maximum of 11KW with the version MCD-100-011.

All members of the MCD-100 family are available for a variety of voltage applications ranging up to 600VAC.

Here a highlight summary of MCD-500 features and its benefits.  

Aside from the very well known and appreciated user friendliness we enjoy:

Small footprint and compact size saves panel space.


Selection can be based on the motor power to ease the choice.

Universal control voltage simplifies the selection even further and keeps replacement stock for maintenance reasons at an ultimate minimum.

“Fit and forget” contactor design simplifies likewise the installation and reduces also the required panel space.

Maximum reliability result into a maximum up time.

Robust semiconductor design achieves a reliable operation.

The feature of almost unlimited number of starts per hour without derating give you the maximum flexibility you do need at times.

Maximum ambient temperature of 50 degrees Celsius without derating eliminates the need for external cooling.

Very user friendly solutions to save commissioning time to ease the installation and to simplify the operation.

Digitally controlled rotary switches secure precise settings and simplify also here not only the installation but also the operation.

Easy DIN Rail mounting for sizes up to 30KW saves not only time but also space.
