New – ABB’s ACS350 general machinery drives are designed and built to make it extremely easy for volume machine builders to increase average throughput time via an average two-second programming time per unit. ABB has just extended ratings of the drives to 15 hp at 240 Volts and 30 hp at 480 V.The units are RoHS-compliant, with coated boards, and are ideal for a wide range of machinery applications in the food processing, material handling, textiles, printing, rubber and plastics, semiconductor, automotive and woodworking industries.

ABB extends ACS0 general machinery drives to 15 hp at 240 V and 30 hp at 480 V

ABB ACS350 drive line adds 15 hp and 30 hp at 240 V and 480 V, respectively.

“This is more horsepower in a very compact R4-frame drive that offers extremely fast replication of parameter sets across units– and they are offered at very competitive pricing,” said Kathleen Watson, product manager for the ACS350 drive line. The R0-R4 frame drives also accommodate easy, repeatable installation, with unified height and depth across the horsepower range, she said. “All that varies as thehorsepower increases is that the drives get slightly wider,” she noted.
The new R4 frame units are 7.13 inches high, 6.65 in. deep, and 10.24 in. wide. Such uniform measurements make it easy to arrange cable tunnels in straight runs, to power the units, and control motors. Innovative features packaged into ABB's extended ACS350 general machinery drives family are designed to minimize installation and commissioning time and cost.
