Danfoss BD50F Compressor (mm) 101Z1220

Danfoss BD50F Compressor (mm) 101Z1220



The BD50F is next in line to the BD80F compressor.  Like the smaller BD35F (below) and larger BD80F (above), the BD50F uses an electronically commutated permanent magnet brushless DC motor.  The advantages of this approach are small size and variable-capacity.  As with its predecessors, the BD50F does require the use of an electronic power module.  Like all electronics, the power module is extremely reliable as long as it is properly installed and does not overheat.  (To prevent overheating use our Danfoss Power Module Cooling Fan Kit.) 

NOTE:  The BD50F compressor requires a Power Module to run.  The same power module is used for 12vdc or 24vdc systems.  The module must be purchased separately from the compressor.  There are four types of modules to choose from, the standard power module (010-1175), the Adaptive Energy Optimizing (AEO) module (010-1176), the High Start Current module (010-1178) and the High Performance module (010-1153).  The AEO module is more energy efficient as the compressor will always adapt its speed to the actual cooling demand.  The High Start module provides additional starting torque and is more dependable in starting the system.
