Machinery drives

ABB offers machinery builders AC drives from component drives up to high performance machinery drives. Global support and service guarantees lifelong satisfaction. ABB machinery drives provide speed control of diverse applications from spa bath motors to treadmill motors, as well as high precision applications such as positioning and synchronization systems.

Component Drives
  • ACS55 and ACS150 products
  • from 0.18 to 4 kW / 0.25 to 5 hp

The ABB component drives are designed for machine building. It is a component that is bought, together with other components from a logistical distributor. The drive is stocked, and the number of options and variants is optimized for logistical distribution.

General Machinery Drives
  • ACS350 and ACS355 products
  • from 0.37 to 22 kW / 0.5 to 30 hp
  • supply voltage 200 - 480 V

ABB general machinery drives are designed for the machine building sector. In serial type manufacturing the consumed time per unit is critical. The drive is designed to be the fastest drive in terms of installation, setting parameters and commissioning. The basic product has been made as user-friendly as possible, yet providing high intelligence. The drive offers diverse functionality to cater for the most demanding needs.

High Performance Machinery Drives
  • ACSM1
  • 0.75 to 160 kW / 1 to 200 hp

ABB machinery drives provide high performance speed, torque and motion control for demanding machines. They can control induction, synchronous and asynchronous servo and high torque motors with various feedback devices. The compact hardware and programming flexibility ensure the optimum solution. The innovative memory unit concept enables flexible drive configuration.
