John Guthrie, Energy Efficiency Manager, ABB writes: The latest in variable-speed drive technology, the ABB industrial drive, ACS880, is showcased in the 2014 edition of the ABB catalogue.

The power range is extended to 2,800 kW in cabinet built units, with IP55 and IP21 variants now available. There is also a range of factory-built multidrive cabinets and modules included to allow integrators to build complex drives systems.

The range is the first low voltage AC drive to use ABB’s new common architecture that features the same control panel, harmonised parameters and functions, universal accessories and engineering tools.  The architecture brings faster commissioning, minimal operator training and a familiarity across all ABB drives to be launched in the future.

The cabinet offering includes active rectifier sections up to 6000 kVA, diode rectifier sections up to 5500 kVA and a new style low cost regenerative rectifier unit up to 6000 kVA.  The multidrive line ups can be configured with a large selection of inverter sections, braking sections and integrated options.

ABB’s manuals, documentation and engineering tools provide comprehensive help to design and install the modules into either Rittal or bespoke cabinets.

The 96 page guide covers everything end-users and OEMs will need from ABB and is available to order by calling the ABB BrochureLine on 0800 783 7491.  You can also visit the ABB website,  to download your copy or you can e-mail the ABB team to request a printed copy.
