IDS has been an ABB inverter partner since 1994 providing complete support and backup to ABB’s market leading products. We are proud to be an ABB VP (Value Provider).

Inverter Services

Inverter Drive Systems began as an inverter distributor in 1999 and since then we have enjoyed a special relationship with ABB. ABB is one of the largest engineering firms in the world operating mainly in robotics, power and automation technology areas. The ABB Variable Speed Drive range is viewed by many as the most technologically advanced. With the introduction in the last few years of the ‘all purpose’  ACS580 drive, ABB continue to lead the way in inverter development. This is why IDS are proud to be an ABB Value Provider. Our engineers and sales team are trained to stringent and exacting ABB standards.

In order for us to support our clients, we offer the following inverter services:

Repairs are carried out at our centrally located facility in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, or if it is not expedient to move the drive, we can repair the inverter at your premises. Click here to find out more about our Inverter Repairs Service here.

ABB recommend regular preventive maintenance for inverters, IDS have formalised this requirement into a cost effective Inverter Service Contract you can find out more about the IDS Service Contract by clicking here.

IDS are able to offer an extended warranty on all ABB Inverters purchased from us, as long as a service contract is utilised, these must be applied at point of sale, find out more call 0115 944 1036 or email [email protected]

You can register your inverters with us for breakdown assistance, we simply take your company details, register the inverters you have at which locations (if you have the list) and set other account details so should the worst happen we are able to respond rapidly. There is more information about the IDS Inverter Breakdown Assistance here.

We at IDS are available for inverter technical advice on a range of ABB inverter, motor and application issues. Find out more by clicking through to our Inverter Technical Advice Page.

The team at IDS can provide a bespoke ABB Inverter training program to suit your requirements. We also run special product focused training at our Ilkeston facility which are focused on expanding your use of the ABB Variable Speed Drive range. To find out more visit our ABB Inverter Training Page.

Harmonic Distortion can be reduced at source. IDS supply and install low harmonic drives and active filters which can reduce the harmonics produced to practically zero. Find out more about the IDS Harmonic Distortion Surveys here.

Our hire drive range of inverters are transportable and ready cabled for quick and easy shipping to you on site in response to urgent inverter failures. Alternatively, they can be loaded into one of our vans and accompanied by our ABB trained Engineers who will be able to install and commission the drive to get you back up and running avoiding costly downtime. You can find out more about our ABB Hire Drive range here.

Energy Efficiency Motor Survey. The survey comprises of a site visit, where we will analyse your electric motors with a view to addding an inverter to produce substantial energy and monetary savings. During the survey we give you the energy saving facts and figures, including predicted payback times and total energy and monetary savings applicable to each motor/application. To book your Energy Efficiency Motor Survey call us on 0115 944 1036 or email [email protected]

IDS offers a fully consultative inverter upgrade service. From a single unit to a complete “daisy-chain”, our knowledgeable engineers can offer the right solution for your applications. For more information about our Inverter Upgrade Service click here.

We have collaborated with the experts at ABB to bring you and your team online training from ABB. A few of these courses are even CPD accredited and are available as and when you need them at no cost other than your teams time investment to hone their skills. View all our ABB Motor and Variable Speed Drive Online Courses here.

Understanding the current status of your variable speed drive fleet will provide process and operational critical knowledge. The ABB Ability Life Cycle Assessment will give you a clear picture allowing you to plan and budget for appropriate maintenance. Find out more about the ABB Ability Life Cycle Assessment here.

Working across a variety of industries our highly experience engineers have installed and commissioned ABB inverters for: the Water Industry, Mines and Quarries, Manufacturing Facilities, Mills, Transportation Depots, Laboratories, Office and Shopping Complexes, Leisure Centres, Restaurants, Food Processing Plants, Farms (both livestock and agricultural), Schools, Colleges and Universities, Hospitals, Hotels, Chiller Plants, Heavy Industry, Waste Recycling Plants and Digesters, Oil, Automotive Plants, Aggregates, Plastic and Rubber Factories, Paper and Cardboard Facilities and many more! Find out more about Inverter Installations here.

An Inverter Preventative Maintenance Schedule prolongs the lifetime of your drives. We have estimated the cost of a preventative maintenance schedule compared to the cost of “Fit and Forget”. When tallying up the cost of unexpected breakdown, loss of production and potential cost of repairs/hire drives, we calculate the preventative maintenance schedule only becomes financially unfeasible in year 19!  Find out more about Inverter Preventative Maintenance Schedules here.

With an ABB Ultra Low Harmonic Drive there is no need for filters, multi-pulse arrangements or special transformers as they have harmonic distortion mitigation built-in. The risk of overheating is drastically reduced so there is no need to over dimension transformers and cables. View more information about ABB Ultra Low Harmonic Drives here.
