ACQ80 solar pump drive

Using clean energy for sustainable life

ABB’s solar pump drive addresses the challenge of making water available even in remote locations with no access to power grid. The drive uses photovoltaic panels as a source of power to run water pumps. From dawn to dusk, the drive operates without energy costs in an easy and safe manner keeping CO2 emissions to a minimum.

Compared to diesel generator pumps, the ACQ80 solar pump drive is environmentally friendly, with a long lifetime and low maintenance cost when running on solar power. Typical applications are irrigation, community water supply, and agriculture.

Built-in maximum power point tracking ensures that you get the most power output from your solar panel and extract maximum water flow from your pump throughout the day.
