The ABB ACS550 AC drive explained

The ABB ACS550 is a general-purpose variable-speed drive that’s designed for straightforward installation, configuration and operation. This drive can be ordered quickly from extensive stocks for next-day delivery via an ABB Authorised Value Provider (AVP) such as Gibbons. Its familiar user and process interface, common spare parts plus universal software tools for sizing, commissioning and maintenance make it suitable for a wide range of industries.

The main focus for most users of AC drives is cutting energy usage and related costs. The ACS550 makes energy management easy thanks to user-friendly monitoring which records CO2 emissions and money saved.

“The ACS550 makes energy management easy.”

ABB’s Assistant control panel is a doddle to operate thanks to a large graphical display and softkeys. It also has a multilingual alphanumeric display which allows easy programming, and there’s a built-in help function. ABB ACS550s offer flexible installation options, as they can be wall mounted, cabinet mounted or free-standing – great if you ever need to move the drive elsewhere.

The clever FlashDrop system allows the user to programme the drive whilst it’s still in the box with no power, meaning it’s perfect for OEMs and machine builders. FlashDrop is fast, safe, simple and fits in the palm of your hand.

“Perfect for OEMs and machine builders.”

A programmable eight-point load curve can be set during commissioning, which allows precise monitoring of changes in plant conditions and can alert the user to potential problems.
