DAV inverters are original components of a former generation of Konecranes’ variable speed drives used for Konecranes motor control. Replacing these with their modern equivalent, the D2V, used to be a long, expensive affair. Now, the process has been streamlined and the solution tailored, giving crane owners a far more effective option when they face a breakdown.
The DAV-D2V upgrade is a pre-engineered solution simplifying what was previously a highly intricate, multi-channel process. We recognized our customers’ difficulties, so we revamped the service entirely, enabling fast delivery and fast installation.There’s also a complete set of manuals for the replacement process.
In short, the solution enables a smooth transition to a new generation of inverters, and improves a crane’s operational reliability thanks to the increased availability of spare parts.
- The replacements supplied have been tested in crane applications thereby increasing the safety and reliability of the product.
- Reduction in risks associated with the breakdown of components, including spare part availability issues, replacement time, and machine downtime.
- Easier commissioning, less downtime and less risk of the component being installed incorrectly because of pre-set parameters.
