ABB Drives

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.

AC Variable Frequency Drives

An AC drive is an electronic device that is used to adjust the rotating speed or torque of a standard, electric AC motor.
ABB Industrial drives offer scalablility and performance to control a broad range of industrial applications with a range of options and features to fulfill even the most demanding requirements and most extreme conditions. They are easy to select, easy to purchase, easy to install, and easy to operate.

Substantial energy savings - An electric drive allows the user to slow down or speed up the motorbased on current demands

Optimal process control - An electric drive enables the process to achieve the right speed and torque while maintaining its accuracy. This contributes to more consistent quality and throughput of the end product.

Reduced need for maintenance - Controlling the speed or toeque of an electric motor means there is less wear and tear on the motor and the driven machine.

Efficient system upgrade - An AC drive allows for the removal of values, gears and belts. It also ensures network dimensioning based on a lower starting current.

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 process controls.
Read this whitepaper, A Smart Combination, to learn how City of Lawrence was able to meet the water demands of residents while minimizing the life cycle cost of the pump, save energy, and reduce maintenance needs.

 ABB and Baldor have an exceptional reputation of delivering innovative products, quality solutions, and excellent support. With an ABB drive and Baldor motor package, you will receive:

  • An outstanding 5 year warranty for a drive/motor package
  • Best possible drive/motor solution for each specific application
  • Ease of ordering with one stop shopping
  • Optimized performance through efficient use of energy

ACS880 Series Industrial Drives

The all-compatible ACS880 industrial drives are designed to tackle any of your motor-driven applications, in any industries, whatever the power range. Compatible with virtually all of your processes, automation systems, users and business requirements, the innovation behind the ACS880 drives is the drives architecture that simplifies operation, optimizes energy efficiency and helps maximize process output. The ACS880 series consists of single drives, multidrives and drive modules.

ACS800 Series Industrial Drives

ABB's industrial drives are available both as complete AC drives and/or as modules to meet your requirements as a user, OEM or system integrator. Single Drive Module configurations contains a rectifier, DC link and an inverter in one single AC drive unit. They can be installed without any additional cabinet or enclosure and are available in wall-mounted, freestanding and cabinet-built constructions. They are specifically designed for industrial applications in process industries such as the pulp & paper, metals, mining, cement, power, chemical, and oil & gas. The ACS800 series is available as wall-mount, cabinet-built, regenerative, low harmonic, air-cooled and liquid-cooled constructions.

ACS550 Series Industrial Drives

The ACS550 drive comes with built-in features that make it simple to install, commission, and operate. Ideal for variable and constant torque applications from pumps and fans to conveyors and mixers, as well as many other variable and constant torque applications. Several programming tools are available for easy dimensioning, commissioning, and maintenance making this one of our most versatile drives. ACS550 Packaged Drives The ACS550 drive is also available in various enclosure options (UL type 1, 12, and 3R) with circuit breaker and fused disconnects

ACS355 Series Industrial Drives

The ACS355 comes with a wide range of built-in technology such as the safe torque off functionality and sequence programming, which reduce the need for additional control electronics. The product offers options and diverse functionality to cater to the needs set for speed and torque control of AC induction and permanent magnet motors.
Application specific firmware variants available:
  • High speed spindle
  • Enhanced sequence programming
  • Solar pump drive
  • Low ambient start

Use a Web Browser on ABB Drives! The FENA-01 Ethernet module for ABB drives can be reached through a web browser! 1 Using the keypad, enter a valid IP address in Group 51, Parameters 5105 through 5108. 2 Using the keypad, enter a valid subnet mask like 255.255.255.0 which shows up as option 24 in Parameter 5109 3 Parameter 51.27, Edit, Refresh to perform a parameter refresh or cycle power to the drive. 4 Connect the drive to the same network as your PC and type the IP address into the address bar of your favorite browser. You will have access to 3 major sections of information. Section 1: Status This will show all of the important facts about the Ethernet module like software version, MAC and serial number. Section 2: Configuration This will show all of the parameters needed to configure your Ethernet module to talk to your control system via EtherNet IP, Modbus TCP or ProfiNET. © 2015 Logic, Inc ALL RIGHTS RESERVED No part of this content may be copied, reproduced or otherwise utilized without permission Section 3: Support This section give you links to find important information like manuals and EDS files *Note: This is not a webpage that will show all of the parameters in the drive It will only show Ethernet card related parameters. © 2015 Logic, Inc ALL RIGHTS RESERVED No part of this content may be copied, reproduced or otherwise utilized without permission
