ABB ACS180 The All New Entry Level Variable Speed Drive
The much-anticipated ACS180 is now widely available including, as you would expect, here at IDS. In this article we take a look at the last member of the ACS general purpose drives and review what it does really well, the applications where it stands out, and the range of its capabilities.
The performance you expect, in a compact design!
If you are seeking an easy to use, cost effective variable speed drive that doesn’t compromise on performance, then the ACS180 is the model for you. ABB has tailored this device to provide precisely what you need – a straightforward, reliable drive that does the job impeccably. This device represents ABB’s commitment to simplification, ensuring ease of use for the end-user without compromising on performance.
Key Features and User-friendly Design
Embedded within the ACS180 is the ‘Safe Torque Off’ functionality. This ensures the motor is bought safely and reliably to a no-torque state.
Out of the box, the ACS180 has a built-in keypad, but can also use the same keypad as the rest of the ACS range, guaranteeing a consistent user interface across all models. The homogeneity in programming across the range allows for effortless setup and easy maintenance and streamlining processes.
Broad Range: Catering to Various Power Requirements
ABB has done an excellent job at expanding their ACS drives’ power range with the new ACS180. Now, the range covers from a lower end of 0.37 kW to a robust 6 mW. Specifically, the ACS180 comes with a range between 0.37 kW to 22 kW and is available in both single phase and three-phase.
Suitability and Applications
The ACS180 is suitable for a wide range of applications, in particular we would look to recommend this model for macerators, ventilation extracts, conveyors, fans, pumps, and material handling. The ACS180 is designed to support an extensive range of devices and machinery ensuring optimal performance.
