ABB launches ACH580 HVAC drive

Automation giant ABB has announced the launch of its ACH580 HVAC drive, a state-of-the-art extension to the company’s VSD range, which promises to facilitate “comprehensive climate control.”

The ACH580, available rated 0.75–250 kW, “sets new standards both in simplicity and reliability” according to ABB. Here’s a rundown of some of the drive’s standout features:

  • Simple selection, installation and commissioning thanks to built-in elements such as EMC filters, chokes for reducing harmonics, cabling clamps and BACnet communications
  • Drive and motor performance monitored to help optimise energy efficiency and plan maintenance
  • Compatible with any AC motor type, including induction, permanent magnet and synchronous reluctance.
  • User-friendly HVAC control panel shows live status on customisable display
  • Robustly designed to cope with the demands of HVAC applications, with IP55 and IP21 enclosures helping protect against ingress of solid objects and water
  • Comprehensive lifecycle services from ABB and its authorised value providers (AVPs) such as Gibbons Engineering Group

The ACH580 controls HVAC systems in ‘mission-critical’ applications such as hospitals and data centres, where protecting the people and equipment within is essential, along with commercial premises including schools and offices, where reliable airflow is primarily required for productivity and comfort.

As an AVP for ABB drives, we look forward to supplying, installing and commissioning the ACH580 to our clients across the industrial and commercial sectors as well as providing with essential lifecycle services such as maintenance, training and technical support.
