ABB inverter drive suitable for hose-down applications up to 22 kW

ABB machinery drives ACS355 are optimised for the machine building sector in terms of installation, setting parameters, available machinery features and commissioning. The drive is equipped with a dual-channel safe torque-off interface to SIL3/PL e.


Based on the standard IP20 drive, this IP66 protection class version of the ACS355 is designed to operate in the harshest and most demanding of conditions. A user control panel housed within a plastic window is designed to resist moist and dusty atmospheres.


Applications include food and beverage, textile, ceramics, pulp and paper and water and waste water industries. The drives are suitable for screws, mixers, pumps, fans and conveyers especially where the machine is exposed to dust, moisture and cleaning chemicals.



The drive’s hygienic design and use of materials meeting current hygiene standards, means that the drive traps no bacteria and can withstand frequent washing. The IP66 variant meets all of the relevant hygiene requirements for the food and beverage industry, and has been tested to highest degree of protection (IP69K) for washing with pressurized hot water.



ABB’s FlashDrop is a powerful palm-sized tool that allows programming of the drive whilst still in the box, with no power. A useful feature for OEMS and machine builders. It gives the possibility to hide selected parameters to protect the machine. The tool stores 20 parameter sets, which can be moved between a PC and a drive.
