ABB drives enhanced by extended fieldbus options

Two of ABB’s most commonly-used variable-speed drives have had their fieldbus options extended in order to enhance safety and monitoring features.

These changes mean that installed ABB ACS580 (general-purpose) and ACS880 (industrial) drives may now include:

Support for ProfiSafe

Communication technology that allows a safety signal to be sent via fieldbus rather than via hard-wiring.

Neta-21 remote monitoring module

Allows the drive to create performance and fault reports which it can send via email or text from an isolated location.

A new version of the Moxa modem

Enables connection to the phone network in the event of internet not being available or if a firewall is in place.

A PC tool for generating data files

These files teach PLCs about drives connected to fieldbus networks while allowing them access to the drive’s functions with the least possible programmer intervention.

For more information about ABB drives and the wide range of advanced software and accessories available for them, call Alan Roberts on 07966 468430 or email alan@gibbonsgroup.co.uk
