ABB is adding two new cabinet-built drives to its ACS580 general purpose drives portfolio, making it the first company to offer a low and medium voltage product family spanning the fractional-kilowatt to multi-megawatt power level.
At SPS IPC Drives 2015, ABB announced two new machinery drives to help machine builders improve machine performance and provide more added value for their customers, while simultaneously cutting integration and maintenance costs. These drives are the latest addition to ABB’s all-compatible drives portfolio, offering a technically compatible drive now with long-term solutions and support for users, processes, business and the environment.
A range of new features for ABB’s all-compatible ACS880 industrial drives meet increasing market demands. The features are part of ABB’s continuous development, providing additional user benefits, through increasing functionality and flexibility in the drives and their motor control technology.
More than 200 elite indoor skydivers from across the world are showing off their indoor flying skills at the Wind Games 2017, taking place on February 3-4 in Spain’s Windoor Realfly vertical wind tunnel. As they tackle a range of disciplines including speed races, freestyle and formation skydiving, they will rely on ABB variable speed drives (VSDs) to ensure precise and almost instantaneous control of wind speeds up to 300 km/h – stronger than a Class 5 hurricane.
The new DCS880 DC drive series is built on the all-compatible drive platform that ensures all ABB variable speed drives (VSDs) share common features and tools, and can be operated in the same way. The drive integrates certified Safe Torque Off (STO) safety functionality as standard and is also enabled for compatibility with the Industrial Internet of Things.
Nuremberg, Germany, November 22, 2016 - The new ACS480 drive complements the existing ACS580 drive series and offers fundamental functionality in a compact package to effortlessly improve processes and operations. The result is energy savings in many common speed controlled applications like pumps, fans and compressors.
