3 Phase has played an integral role in assisting Dometic Marine, the world's leading supplier of marine air conditioning, launch its new Bypassable Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) to the US commercial marine market. As the first Bypassable VFD available for maritime application, this innovation represents a clear breakthrough in marine VFD technology and offers extensive benefits to the industry including the elimination of electrical and navigation system interference.
Matteo Giovanetti, Director of Technology for Dometic Marine explains:
"For years vessel builders, engineers and crew have tolerated the unwanted side effects of VFDs that are used to gently start and stop a chiller's compressor. Dometic's Bypassable VFD not only eliminates start-up surge, but after the start-up is completed it seamlessly disconnects itself, eliminating all harmonic distortion and RFI so installation of line filters and conditioners is not required, saving significant time, space and money."
