Mastering the art of machine building with speed and scalability

Our priority when creating the all-compatible machinery drives has been simple: Making it easy to select the right drives which will adapt smoothly to the machine you are designing. Based on your needs, we offer you a scalable drives family covering a wide power and voltage range, including key drive functionalities.

Our scalable drives family fits optimally together with other ABB devices including our programmable logic controller (PLC's)human machine interfaces (HMI's)motors etc. They all come together in ABB’s Automation Builder software suite, one common tool for configuring, programming and debugging our devices which helps addressing these major cost issues. 

Reliable and fast connectivity is a key to effective automation. We have emphasized speeding up communication between the PLC and drive, thus giving optimal machine operation, while also ensuring functional safety. Major energy savings can today be obtained thanks to optimal drive and motor matching. Usability has also been enhanced, with intuitive and user-friendly interfaces supporting machine operators. All these features serve to speed up your machine design process.


Simplified programming for you

Today, one of your major cost drivers is software development. To boost your margins and your ability to add value, ABB’s Automation Builder software suite can be rapidly applied, despite varied programming backgrounds. This supports scalable and flexible machine architecture by integrating the necessary functionality and know-how directly into the drive.

Preconfigured drives speed up commissioning

Ordering drives should be easy, not complicated. To speed up drive selection and set up, our all-compatible machinery drives have pre-configurable fieldbus features which adapt to the automation system in use. The fieldbuses that you need for your machine are applied to the drives control unit in the factory. During start-up and commissioning of the drive the fieldbuses auto-connect to the automation systems. So there is no need to enable the fieldbus communication from the drive’s control panel.This significantly speeds up commissioning, as fieldbuses auto-connect to the automation systems during drive start-up.


ACS380 - Building a machine is as easy as using it

The ACS380 machinery drive is a robust and compact drive working in a power range 0.25 to 11 kW, and voltages 200 to 240 V (one-phase) and 380 to 480 V (three-phase). This drive has enclosure class IP20 as standard and Different EMC and connectivity variants for ease of integration and connectivity. It is designed to easily meet space restrictions and connectivity requirements inside the machine for both automation and motor control. The ACS380, quite simply, seamlessly supports a wide variety of different needs, from product customization to volume customers. This benefits you, the machine builder, by making your job faster and easier.


ACS880-M04 - The drive adapts to the machine, so people don’t have to

The ACS880 machinery drive is a high performance controller providing both adaptability and performance for machine builders. Suitable for high-performance, the drive works with powers from 0.37 to 45 kW, and voltages 230 to 500 V, with enclosure class IP20 as standard. Extended powers and voltages are available with the ACS380 machinery drives and ACS880 industrial drives.

With ABB’s premium motor control (DTC) the drive enables high static and dynamic motor speed accuracy even without a motor feedback sensor. Integrated safety features include safe torque off (STO). The optional safety functions module provides extended safety functions, simplifying configuration and reducing installation space. In addition, PROFIsafe over PROFINET connectivity is possible between the drive and the PLC.

General motion control features improve precision performance of applications, providing flexbile tools for optimized machine building.

Speed up setup with preconfigured machinery drives

Gaining efficiency via motor-drive combinations

Since ABB makes both variable speed drives as well as a range of motor technologies, we can squeeze greater total efficiency out of the drive and motor combination. In fact, we can calculate and verify the IES efficiency values for the entire system. The benefit for you is both better energy efficiency, and also a clear and accurate indication of what the total efficiency of the system will be, instead of using assumptions about how the various components will interact.

Every drive is tested for reliable operation.
All of these features and benefits make all-compatible machinery drives the best choice to help you plan and build world class machines.
