ShowerPower® Stack Technology

Heat losses are shared between four separate units and IGBT modules will
operate with lower temperature, resulting in longer life expectancy

Danfoss ensures quality in all PCB boards and inverter modules through
designing, assembling and testing each one individually

The inverter DC link is based on film capacitors - resulting in better reliability and
a longer life while also reducing maintenance

Danfoss ensures a more reliable product by having the ability to measure and
control the temperature on each IGBT module

A quick and drip-Free disconnect for the coolant supply of the inverter module
makes maintenance quick and simple.
