Effortless simplicity with ACS580 drives

With the ACS580 general purpose drive the selection, installation and use is as effortless as possible. The drive is equipped with built-in features that simplify the ordering and delivery, and reduce costs as everything is delivered in a single compact package. The ACS580 is always in stock, always near you with ABB’s local offices and our global value provider network members in over 90 countries.

All essential features built-in to control your applications

The ACS580 general purpose drive is virtually plug-in-ready to control compressors, hoists, conveyors, pumps and fans as well as many other variable and constant torque applications. It requires very little setting up or commissioning. All the essential features are built-in as standard, which reduces the need for additional hardware and simplifies drive selection.

The drive’s patented swinging choke technology matches the right inductance to the right load, thus suppressing and reducing harmonics. Other built-in features include EMC filter, brake chopper up to frame R3, Modbus RTU fieldbus interface and dual channel SIL3 safe torque off (STO).

Control panel with assistants and straightforward primary settings menu help you configure the drive quickly and effectively.

The drive and all options have coated circuit boards as standard. The ACS580 provides control for asynchronous motors and permanent magnet motors.

Easy selection, installation and commissioning

The "all inclusive" concept simplifies the drive selection and installation, saving time and money. Although the drive controls a wide range of applications in different industries, it requires very little configuration and commissioning time.

All the basic features are integrated as standard, which reduces the need for additional hardware and simplifies the selection of the drive.

Simplicity at your fingertips

  • The simplified menu settings in integrated control panel and assistants reduce the time needed for commissioning the drive.
  • It is not necessary to know parameters or use any programming language
  • Drive composer PC tool for commissioning, configuration, monitoring and adjustment of processes

Reliability and durability

All ACS580 drives are tested in maximum temperature with nominal loads in the production. Testing includes the complete performance testing and all protection functions of each drive we make. The drive and all options have coated circuit boards as standard. With the ACS580 you are able to increase production efficiency year after year.

High protection class drive for better return on investment

A range of ACS580 with IP55, UL Type 12 protection is perfect for light industrial applications such as pumps, fans and conveyors exposed to dust, moisture, vibrations, and other harsh environments. The harsh protection drives provide smaller capital expenses by avoiding or advancing maintenance of external components, which in turn improves the reliability of the drive and the process.

Effortless energy efficiency

The built-in energy efficiency calculators, including used and saved kWh, CO2 reduction and money saved, help users fine-tune processes to ensure optimal energy use. The energy optimizer control mode ensures the maximum torque per ampere, reducing energy drawn from the supply. The drive fulfills the highest IE2 drive (EN 50598-2) energy efficiency class and is compatible with high-efficiency IE4 motors, further reducing total life cycle costs.
