ACS550- general purpose drives from ABB UK


ABB ACS550 drives reduce cooling tower costs by over £30,000 p.a.


In addition to the ACS550 general purpose inverter drives, ABB UK sells a wide range of inverter drives whose performance characteristics and specifications closely match the industry demands for applications such as HVAC, water and wastewater, fans and pumps, and high torque loads.


The ACS550 however, is a general purpose drive are designed to control a wide range of applications. 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 such as including  conveyors and mixers as well as process control in industries including material handling, food and beverage, chemical, rubber and plastics, textile and printing.


This general purpose drive is ideal in those situations where there is a need for simplicity to install, commission and use and where reasonable amounts of flexibility and functionality are required. For highly demanding  torque applications, the ABB industrial drive with DTC such as the ACS800 or ACS880 should be chosen.


The drives are easy to select, install, configure and use, saving considerable time as most features are built-in as standard and the drive has a common user and process interface, common software tools for sizing, commissioning and maintenance and common spare parts.


Users can benefit from plug and play convenience right from the start. ACS550 requires no customising or special product engineering required.  A wide range of fieldbus options gives excellent connectivity and new energy monitoring allows energy management.


Energy efficiency achieved with general purpose drives can be easily monitored using the built-in counters, which display energy savings in kilowatt hours, carbon dioxide emissions or local currencies.
