ABB MFDT-01 FlashDrop Tool Distributor

FlashDrop Tool

FlashDrop is a powerful palm sized tool for fast and easy parameter selecting and setting. It gives the possibility to hide selected parameters to protect the machine.

Only the parameters needed in the application are shown. The tool can copy parameters between two drives or between a PC and a drive. All the above can be done without a power connection to the drive - in fact, it is not even necessary to unpack the drive.

FlashDrop is compatible with ACS 150, ACS 310, ACS 355 and ACS550 products.

ABB ACS550 NEMA 3R Irrigation Drives, 15 to 200 hp Distributors


Easy to use drives that provide reliable pump control are vital to the health of your crops and your bottom line. ABB low voltage drives help you protect your investment by safeguarding your system and enabling it to run efficiently to provide the value and dependability you demand. What you choose for your application matters.

Whether you are saving energy or converting power for your well or booster pump, your system requires optimized control. In the event of a pump system failure, minimizing downtime is imperative. ABB manufactures drives in the U.S. and stocks them locally for efficient delivery, and provides 24/7 technical support - because protecting your investment is our priority, too.

Keeping costs under control is important in any industry. You likely realize that diesel generators are only 40% efficient and require continual refueling, which becomes a very expensive solution. When you leverage Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), you inherently save energy by applying electronic variable speed control to your pumps and pumping systems.

ABB ACS550-CC Packaged Inverter with Bypass Distributor

ACS550-PC & ACS550-PD

The ABB ACS550 Drive Package with Circuit Breaker (-PC) and Drive Package with Disconnect Switch and Fuses (-PD) offer users high-horsepower NEMA 12 solutions, and lower-horsepower solutions with disconnect options.

The ACS550-PC (with circuit breaker) and ACS550-PD (with disconnect switch and fuses) packages in both NEMA 1 and NEMA 12 are offered up to 60 HP at 480V, and 30HP at 240V. The units are extremely compact and narrow, with a smaller footprint than competitive equivalents. This feature makes them ideal for overcrowded electrical rooms or mezzanines and for mounting right onto a machine or a column on the plant floor.

At the higher horsepower ratings, these new packages make it easy for end users to install additional components in the drive enclosure. There is space for field installation of such components, in wall mount and floor-standing enclosures above 60 HP at 480V and 30 HP at 240V.

The ACS550 with Bypass is an ACS550 AC adjustable frequency drive in an integrated UL Type/NEMA 1, UL Type/NEMA 12, or UL Type/NEMA 3R package with a bypass function configured entirely of standard industrial control components.

SREA-01 Ethernet Adapter with Remote Access

Quick Start-up Guide

Hardware Manual

ABB's SREA-01 Ethernet adapter performs all essential remote access tasks. It is designed as an optional remote interface module for ABB industrial drives, standard drives, general machinery drives, DC drives and other ABB products, such as the AC500 PLC. The SREA-01 can send process or drive data and event messages as well as log data to the drive's internal memory, without the need for a PLC or dedicated on-site computer. The module's internal web server ensures smooth access from standard PCs, mobile phones with a web browser, or other telecom devices.

In addition to a standard Ethernet port, the SREA-01 has a serial port for connection to a standard GSM/GPRS modem for Internet connectivity in isolated places. The modem connection can be used for sending e-mail or SMS messages, uploading data files by FTP, or accessing the module web pages.
