    Efficient, universal and intelligent

    The IndraDrive ML extends the IndraDrive series into the upper power range. The drive can power individually up to 500 kW and connect in parallel up to 8 devices and up to 4 MW.


Electric drive technology for powers in the megawatt range

The IndraDrive ML extends the IndraDrive series into the upper power range: individually up to 500 kW, connected in parallel up to 8 devices and up to 4 MW. These space-saving, modular inverters are real all-rounders – they can be used as a mains power inverter or as a motor inverter. This minimizes the variants, simplifies handling and reduces your storage costs. And you save energy at the same time.
