ACH580 UL Type 4X drive

ABB January 22, 2024

Introducing the ACH580 4X variable frequency drive (VFD), a new addition to ABB’s all-compatible drive portfolio that is built for outdoor installation and extreme environments in the HVACR industry. Certification to UL Type 4X (NEMA 4X and IP66 rating) ensures protection against rain, cold, snow, salt spray, and dust as well as corrosion due to caustic chemicals, gases, and damage from the formation of exterior ice, high levels of humidity or UV radiation.

Purpose-built for HVACR, the ACH580 4X drive incorporates features like flying start for seamless control of spinning motors, multi-pump control for enhanced system efficiency, freezestat response, resonance monitoring, and an override capability for fire emergencies. Convenient options include a built-in disconnect switch to streamline installation and eliminate the need for branch circuit fuses (while maintaining a 100 kA SCCR), as well as a sun shield to help maintain optimal performance when exposed to direct sunlight.

“All customers in the HVACR industry need robust and reliable equipment, but there are situations where the drive needs outside installation, near the application, subject to extreme environments,” says Mario Lemarroy, Product Market Manager, at ABB. “Our ACH580 4X drive also is equipped with HVACR specific software features, making it easy to commission and use.”
