ABB offers AC and DC Drives and Motors to improve the efficiency of energy use and optimize process control. ABB offers a comprehensive range of products that operate reliably no matter how challenging the process.
Effortless Simplicity with ACS580 Drives
The ACS580 general purpose drive is virtually plug-in-ready to control compressors, hoists, conveyors, pumps and fans as well as many other variable and constant torque applications. It requires very little setting up or commissioning. All the essential features are built-in as standard, which reduces the need for additional hardware and simplifies drive selection.
The drive’s patented swinging choke technology matches the right inductance to the right load, thus suppressing and reducing harmonics. Other built-in features include EMC filter, brake chopper up to frame R3, Modbus RTU fieldbus interface and dual channel SIL3 safe torque off (STO).
Control panel with assistants and straightforward primary settings menu help you configure the drive quickly and effectively.
Easy selection, installation and commissioning: All the basic features are integrated as standard, which reduces the need for additional hardware and simplifies the selection of the drive. It is not necessary to know parameters or use any programming language and the simplified menu settings in integrated control panel and assistants reduce the time needed for commissioning the drive.
Reliability and durability: All ACS580 drives are tested in maximum temperature with nominal loads in the production. Testing includes the complete performance testing and all protection functions of each drive. A range of ACS580 with IP55, UL Type 12 protection is perfect for light industrial applications such as pumps, fans and conveyors exposed to dust, moisture, vibrations, and other harsh environments. The harsh protection drives provide smaller capital expenses by avoiding or advancing maintenance of external components, which in turn improves the reliability of the drive and the process
Effortless energy efficiency: The built-in energy efficiency calculators, including used and saved kWh, CO2 reduction and money saved, help users fine-tune processes to ensure optimal energy use. The energy optimizer control mode ensures the maximum torque per ampere, reducing energy drawn from the supply. The drive fulfills the highest IE2 drive (EN 50598-2) energy efficiency class and is compatible with high-efficiency IE4 motors, further reducing total life cycle costs.
Drives and Motors - An Energy Efficiency Package
When combining an ABB drive and Baldor motor, you can optimize your
applications performance through efficient use of energy and minimize
the life cycle cost of other equipment. ABB's drive technology, Direct
Torque Control (DTC), calculates the state of the motor at a high
speed.This enables drives to control the motor with precision and react
rapidly to sudden process and load changes - resulting in a dramatic
reduction in power consumption and a considerable improvement in
