The ACS250 Micro Drive product line by ABB features an IP20 panel-mounted chassis and features an IP66/NEMA 4X drive for harsh conditions. Courtesy: ABBABB's ACS250 Micro Drive is designed to meet the production and performance needs of system integrators, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and panel builders, as well as the requirements of end users in a broad range of applications - from augers, mixers, pumps, and fans, to conveyors.

The drive offers two degrees of environmental protection, starting with the standard IP20 panel-mounted chassis. For more demanding environmental conditions, such wash-down applications that require on-machine mounting, the IP66/UL Type 4x drive is the perfect solution.

With its feed-thru wiring, the IP20 chassis drive easily can replace motor starters, to improve overall energy efficiency, reduce mechanical stresses and enhance the process control of many applications. The drive's compact and uniform dimensions facilitate multiple drive solutions and cabinet installations, saving valuable installation space.

The IP66/NEMA 4X drive was designed with materials that allows the drive to function in harsh environments that contain dust, moisture and chemicals. The integrated keypad provides straightforward drive commissioning and maintenance, and the sealed ABS enclosure and corrosion-resistant heat sink are ideal for wash-down applications.

The drive supports precise process control, with an enhanced V/Hz control with variable-torque or constant-torque V/Hz profiles, and embedded Modbus-RTU communication interface for real-time control and monitoring.

The IP20 drive is available in 1~115 V In / 3~230 V out and 600 V In/Out, completing ABB's micro drives portfolio. The IP66/NEMA 4X drive offers one of the broadest voltage ranges in the micro drives class - from 1~115V In/3~230V Out, to 600V In/Out - covering all the typical global voltage requirements of machine builders with a single family of machinery drive.
