Product guide

Profile

ABB has designed an extensive portfolio of variable speed drives that are available through ABB’s sales offices and technical partners around the world.

To meet the varying requirements of its customers, ABB offers a wide range of drives that meet the specific demands of pump, fan, conveyor and compressor applications as well as machinery and marine applications.

This product guide gives an overview of ABB’s portfolio of AC and DC drives.

Benefits of using ABB drives

Being able to vary the speed and torque of an electric motor, and in turn the driven load by using an ABB drive, brings benefits including:

ABB - global market and technology leader in AC and

DC drives

ABB (www.abb.com) is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact.

ABB is the world’s largest drives manufacturer. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs more than 135,000 people.

All ABB drives have the following common features:

Substantial energy savings – Rather than have an electric motor running continuously at full speed, an adjustable speed drive allows the user to slow down or speed up the motor depending on the demand.

Easy to purchase – ABB drives are available from ABB and selected ABB partners. Visit www.abb.us/drives to find your local sales contact.

Optimal process control – An adjustable speed drive enables a process to achieve the right speed and torque while maintaining its accuracy. All of which can contribute to a more consistent quality and throughput of the end product.

Easy to install and commission – The drives are simple to install and commission. ABB has developed the most advanced control panels in the world. The panels feature plain-language instructions which can be accessed via very simple soft buttons.

This combination, together with a series of Help menus, provides quick and effective access to all parameters needed to make the drive operational. Reduced need for maintenance – Being able to vary the speed and torque of an electric motor means there is less wear and tear on the motor and the driven machine. For example, the ability to bring a process up to speed slowly prevents the sudden shock loading that can damage a motor and the driven machine over time.

Easy to use – The drives are very easy to use. The advanced control panel allows instant adjustments to speed or other application parameters. PC tools extend the offering.

Efficient system upgrade – An adjustable speed drive allows the removal of valves, gears and belts. It also ensures network dimensioning based on a lower starting current.

Easy to select – A drive can be easily selected using the ABB drives selection table on pages 6 and 7. Selection can be as simple as choosing the current rating, voltage and power through to detailed dimensioning and the addition of various options.

There are many advantages for using connectivity products in industrial applications including:

− Reduced site wiring

− Reduced startup time

− Remote access to drive status and parameter configuration

− Improved quality, productivity, flexibility and scalability

Fieldbuses

ABB drives are connected to automation systems using embedded protocols and fieldbus adapters. All of the major fieldbus protocols are supported allowing flexibility and compatibility with the automation system:

− CANopen

− ControlNet

− DeviceNet

− EtherCAT

®

− EtherNet/IP

Expertise

ABB has amassed a wealth of expertise on all aspects of drive systems applied to many different applications across most industries. Its dedicated experts talk your language and can offer the quickest route to a profitable solution, without forgetting personnel safety and environmental responsibility.

Leading technology in design and production

For over 100 years, ABB has invested a proportion of its profits in research and development, working closely with the world’s leading universities and institutions. The result is numerous technology patents that have benefited the most advanced range of adjustable speed drives in the market.

ABB’s reputation is enhanced through association with world leading standards authorities and legislative bodies which has contributed to the safety of ABB’s products.

Cooperating with its sub-suppliers, ABB can exploit the latest component technology when designing drive products. The result is improved quality at component and complete drive level.

ABB’s drive manufacturing facilities use the latest techniques and advanced software. Precision robots combined with fully automated material flow and testing routines guarantee high quality products and short throughput times. Identical manufacturing facilities are located in Finland, Switzerland, the USA, China and India.

Complete technical advice from selection to installation and use

ABB constantly monitors all legislation, regulations, directives and standards, not only ensuring that its products comply but by offering sound advice to customers.

For example, ATEX, the European regulation for equipment used in potentially explosive atmospheres, became mandatory in July

2003. ABB was one of the first companies to gain blanket ATEX certification for its ABB industrial drives and flameproof and non-sparking motors. ABB, therefore, can provide combined

ATEX-approved drives and motors packages that do not need further testing on site.

ABB’s expertise extends across a plant’s entire electrical installations from correct selection, dimensioning and installation through to operation and maintenance of drives, motors, transformers, relays, switches, contactors through to transducers and meters.

Severe plant disruptions caused by harmonic disturbances in electrical equipment can be overcome using ABB harmonic filters. ABB can assess the user’s vulnerability to harmonic problems and the need for filters. In water and wastewater treatment plants, reducing inductive reactive power consumption can be achieved using ABB’s compensation equipment.

In many applications there is a need to interface the drives with external systems. ABB has the expertise in all high performance communication protocols.

Expertise

Thorough process know-how for improved competitiveness

ABB has a thorough knowledge of all applications from pumps, fans and compressors through to conveyors and mixers. ABB has a formidable team of dedicated industry specialists whose focus is on their chosen industry but who share the knowledge from other sectors to their benefit.

Smaller carbon footprint through improved energy efficiency

One of the biggest benefits of controlling the speed of an electric motor according to demand is the energy saving opportunity over other control methods that are used in combination with motors running at fixed speed. For example, in pump and fan applications, using AC drives can cut energy bills typically from 20 to 50 percent, although higher savings are possible.

In the 1970s, ABB developed the very first high-power AC drive.

In subsequent decades ABB has lead a technology revolution, driven by the needs of its customers. ABB is recognized as the world’s leading application engineering organization, offering advice throughout process control and focussing on increasing production capacity, improving end product quality, reducing waste and reducing maintenance costs.

ABB offers energy appraisals, coupled with a series of energy saving tools. An energy appraisal identifies key applications that can benefit from AC drives and proves the saving through

“before” and “after” measurements. ABB AC drives achieve a payback usually within months, based on energy savings alone.

Sustainable development for people and the environment

The ISO 14001, international environmental management standard, has been implemented by ABB.

Life cycle assessment (LCA) is applied continually to all product development. All certificates and declarations relating to environmental issues can be found at www.abb.com/drives.

Energy efficient ABB motors and drives can help to minimize life cycle cost (LCC) of pumps, fans and other driven machines and the entire mechanical installation. Optimal speed control by an AC drive not only saves energy, but also reduces the application’s maintenance needs.

Health and personnel safety is a fundamental part of ABB’s commitment to sustainability. ABB cares deeply about how its operations and products affect its employees, customers, contractors and neighbors.

ABB’s ultimate aim is to prevent all accidents, injuries and occupational illness through the active participation of its customers, contractors and employees.

Active Classic Limited Obsolete

The drive, with complete life cycle services, is available for purchase.

The drive, with complete life cycle services, is available for plant extensions.

Complete life cycle services

Spare parts, maintenance and repair services are available as long as materials can be obtained.

ABB cannot guarantee availability of life cycle services for technical reasons or within reasonable cost.

Limited life cycle services

To ensure the availability of complete life cycle services, a drive must be in the active or classic phase. A drive can be kept in the active or classic phase by upgrading, retrofitting or replacing.

Caution! A drive entering the limited or obsolete phase has limited repair options.

This may result in unpredictable process downtime. To avoid this possibility, the drive should be kept in the active or classic phase.
