Danfoss VLT Compact Starter MCD 201 and MCD 202

Compact but powerful soft starters

Two series of soft starters that provide a total motor starting solution for motors up to 110 kW. The MCD 201 offers efficient motor-starting features, while the extended MCD 202 version provides enhanced soft-start functionality and additional motor-protection features


VLT MCD 201 and MCD 202


The series of soft starters offer easy DIN rail mounting for sizes up to 30 kW, 2-wire or 3-wire start/stop control and excellent starting duty (4 x le for 6 seconds; heavy starting ratings at 4 x le for 20 seconds). They are compatible with grounded delta power systems.


Supply voltages and power range

  • 3 x 200-575 V…7.5-110 kW (200 A)
  • 24 V AC or DC/110-440 V AC
Easy connectivity for the soft starter to Ethernet/IP-based networks, such as Rockwell PLC systems
Panel space can be saved due to the compact size
Installation costs are minimized and power loss eliminated thanks to the built-in bypass
More starts per hour and a higher load is possible as a result of advanced SCR Control Algorithms that balance output waveform
Overall project investment is reduced due to essential motor protections
No external cooling or oversizing is necessary thanks to the maximum ambient temperature of 50°C without derating
