ABB Releases new ACS380 Machinery Drive

Press release date: Jun 14, 2017

A precision drive for precision machines

  • Part of ABB’s all-compatible drive family
  • Robust and compact drive with universal dimensions, ideal for machine builders
  • Available in power range 0.5 to 10 HP and voltages 200 to 480 V
  • Designed for accurate speed and torque control without additional components

The ACS380 machinery drive is part of ABB’s all-compatible drives portfolio designed to offer technically compatible drive, as well as an all-compatible solution for people, process, business, and environmental goals. The ACS380 offers an intuitive control panel with an icon based menu for easy and smart commissioning of the drive. All essential features are built-in as standard, which reduces the need for additional hardware and simplifies drive selection.

The drive offers EMC and connectivity variants for ease of integration and connectivity appreciated by machine builders that install hundreds of drives per year. There is a fixed space in the machine for automation and motor control, and the drive needs to meet the space restrictions and connectivity requirements (fieldbus, I/O etc.). It really is one drive that fits different needs easy, from product customization to volume customers.

To further meet the needs of machine builders, ABB offers programmable logic controllers, human-machine interfaces, various motors and other low-voltage products for a complete machine control solution. These can be programmed using a single software suite called Automation Builder, including Drive composer and other useful tools to design and monitor the machine’s control logic.
