DC Drives


(AC Variable Frequency Drives) :-
AC VFD are used to control the speed and torque of a standard induction motor, the workhorse of industry and for energy saving .ABB is a market leader in both motors and drives worldwide.

  • ABB AC drive technology provides complete control of motor speed, increasing the productivity and efficiency of the driven process. When low capacity is required, the vfd reduces the machine speed and saves energy.
  • Accurate speed control of the manufacturing process optimizes the quality of the end product. The Direct Torque Control (DTC vfd) developed by ABB, and used in ACS850 & ACS800, has improved control accuracy by making speed encoders unnecessary.

ABB industrial drives

ACS850, drive modules (1.1 to 500 kW)

ABB industrial drives are highly fl exible AC variable frequency drives, designed for industrial applications, specifically for those in process industries such as the pulp & paper, metals, mining, cement, power, chemical, and oil & gas industries. The vfd’s can be confi gured to meet the precise needs of these industries, and hence order-based confi guration is an integral part of the offering. Covering a wide power and voltage range and with a vast array of standard and optional features, the variable frequency drives  are readily programmable, making their adaptation to different applications easy.

ABB industrial drives
ACS800, drive modules, (.55 to 2000 kW)

ABB industrial vfd are designed with current ratings to be used in industrial environments for applications requiring high overload ability & energy saving . The heart of the variable frequency drive is DTC, Direct Torque Control, that provides high performance and significant benefits: e.g. accurate static and Dynamic speed and torque control, high starting torque And long motor cables. Inbuilt drive options make the installation work fast and easy. ABB industrial vfd are designed for industrial applications, and especially for applications in process industries such as the pulp & paper, metals, mining, cement, power, chemical, and oil & gas industries.

ABB standard drives are simple to buy, install, configure and use saving considerable time. VFD are widely available through ABB channel partners, hence the use of the term standard. The drives have common user and process interfaces with fieldbuses, common software tools for sizing, commissioning, maintenance and common spare parts.

ABB standard vfd ACS-550 can be used in a wide range of industries. Typical applications include pump, fan and constant torque use, such as conveyors.

  • Flash Drop Tool.
  • Swinging Choke For Superior Harmonic Reduction.
  • Vector control.
  • Coated boards for harsh environments.
  • Inbuilt category C2 EMC fi lter (1st environment) as standard.

ABB VFD can be used in a wide range of industries. Typical applications include pump, fan and constant torque use, such as conveyors. ABB standard drives are ideal in those situations where there is a need for simplicity to install, commission and use and where customizing or special product engineering is not required.
