New Drives & Motors Catalogue from ABB

Posted: Thursday 1st May 2008

The 2008 issue of ABB’s 44-page drives and motors catalogue is now available.

The full-colour publication provides technical details of ABB’s range of low voltage AC drives from 0.18 to 2,800 kW and motors from 0.06 to 710 kW. It also presents ABB’s range of DC and medium voltage AC drives. Easy-to-use tables give ordering data, dimensions, options and electrical details for most products, together with prices for 2008. The brochure also lists all ABB Drives Alliance and Motor Service partners, so customers can easily locate their nearest ABB partner.

New products for this year include an entry-level component drive, the ACS55, which supports the DriveConfig PC tool, enabling machine builders to configure the drives without powering them up. The range of high-performance servo drives has increased to 110kW, with a new heat sink making the unit even smaller. The power range has also been boosted across several drive families, with the general machinery drive extended to 22kW and the wall-mounted versions of the standard drive and industrial drive ranges now offering up to 132kW.

ABB standard drives and HVAC drives now comply with Restriction of Hazardous Substances regulations (RoHS). ABB’s ranges of component drives and general machinery drives were already compliant, so users now have a choice of RoHS drives from 0.18 to 355kW.

Other featured developments include improved intelligent pump control software, new control options, dedicated EMC filters and low harmonics drives, along with DriveMonitor modules that help make early diagnosis of any drive problems and boost long-term performance.

As well as product details, the 2008 brochure also outlines the services available to support drives customers. DrivesActive, provides 24/7 support, while DrivesActive+ is a lifecycle management programme for critical equipment. DrivesAdvantage completes the service portfolio with installation, start-up and after-sales support. In terms of software, the catalogue details integration and programming tools, start-up and maintenance tools, as well as engineering and energy saving tools. Web links tell readers where to download the different packages.

The ABB Drives & Motors Catalogue 2008 is free on request from ABB’s freephone Brochureline on 0800 783 7491 or from the website.
