Variable-Speed Drive

ABB’s industrial drive series, ACS880, controls winches, winders, conveyors, mixers, compressors, pumps, and fans. The cabinet-built single drives, multidrives, and drive modules require less space and are easy to install and connect, the company said. Available from 0.55 to 250 kW and a voltage range from 380 to 500 V alternating current (AC), the drives can control motors ranging from AC induction to permanent magnet motors, and the latest synchronous reluctance motors. The multidrives come with a common DC bus arrangement, enabling single power entry for several drives and allowing the supply unit in the drive to have smaller dimensions, reducing the need for cabling and floor space.
