ABB has extended the ratings of its ACS350 general machinery drives to 20 and 25 HP, at 480 V. Units are RoHS-compliant, with coated boards, and suit a range of machine applications in food processing, material handling, textiles, printing, rubber and plastics, semiconductor, automotive, and woodworking industries. The 25 HP units are 7.13 in. high, 6.65 in. deep, and 10.24 in. wide, which makes it easy to arrange cable tunnels in straight runs to power the units and control motors. Features include FlashDrop technology, eight state sequence programming, and flexible user interface that helps deliver a two-second average programming time per unit. Drives are available in single-phase (240 V) rated up to 3 HP; three-phase (240 V) up to 5 HP; three-phase (480 V) up to 25 HP. In Q32008, the company will extend three-phase (240V) drives to 15 HP and three-phase (480 V) units to 30 HP. www.abb.us/drives ABB
