ABB's ACS880 AC drives will be available as single drives, multidrives and drive modules
ABB’s ACS880 AC drive portfolio introduces a new control panel design, featuring a high-contrast and high-resolution control display. Flexible data visualizations - including bar charts, histograms, trend graphs - help users to analyze processes, with assistants available to simplify set up. The menus and messages are customizable for specific terminology for applications. An integrated USB port also allows connection to the PC tool. Ultimately, as the full product portfolio is released, a customer will be able to use a single operator panel to program any of the drives within the family.
The integrated safety functions include safe torque-off (STO), which can be used to prevent unexpected start-up or other stopping-related functions. In addition, the ABB industrial drives offer further integrated safety options, including safe stop 1, safe stop emergency, safely-limited speed, safe brake control and safe maximum speed. The drives’ functional safety complies with the requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
The ACS880 series will be available as single drives, multidrives and drive modules, with a power range and voltage range up to 690 V.
