ABB industrial drives are designed for industrial
applications, and especially for applications in
processindustries such as the pulp & paper, metals, mining,cement, power, chemical, and oil & gas.
ABB industrialdrives are available both as complete
AC drives and asmodules to meet the requirements
of the users, OEMsand system integrators. These
drives are highly flexible AC drives that can be configured to meet the precise needs of industrial applications, and hence order-based configuration
is an integral part of the offering. The complete
drives and drive modules cover a wide range of
powers and voltages, including industrial voltages
up to 690 V. ABB industrial drives come with a wide range of built-in options. A key feature of these
drives is programmability, which makes adaptation
to different applications easy.
ABB industrial drives are designed with current
ratings to be used in industrial environment for applications requiring high overloadability. The heart
of the drive is DTC, direct torque control, that
provides high performance and significant benefits:
e.g. accurate static and dynamic speed and torque control, high starting torque and long motor cables. Built-in driveoptions make the installation work
fast and easy. Therobust enclosures and cabinets,
with a wide rangeof enclosure classes, as well as
power terminals, aredesigned for harsh
One of the most significant design criteria of ABB
industrial drives has been the long lifetime. Wearing
parts such as fans and capacitors have been selected
accordingly. This means-together with extensive
protection features-excellent reliability in the
demanding industrial market.
Cabinet-built low harmonic drives, ACS800-37
The ACS800-37 cabinet-built drive is a low harmonic solution in the power range of 37 kW up to 2700 kW. It offers a unique harmonics solution that is incorporated into the drive.
Like other cabinet-built single drives, it has a wide range of standardized configurations and is available with IP21, IP22, IP42, IP54 and IP54R protection degrees. Application engineering services can be offered when customization
is needed. A wide range of built-in options is available
and application engineering services can be offered when customization is needed.
The single drive configuration contains a rectifier,
DClink and an inverter in one single AC drive unit.
The single drives are complete AC drives that can be
installed without any additional cabinet or enclosure.
The single drives are available as wall-mounted,
free-standing and cabinet-built constructions. The
protection degree of the single drives is at least IP21, and higher protection degrees are available as
This is the unique reference number that clearly
identifies your drive by construction, power rating
voltage and selected options. By type code you can
specify your drives from the wide range of available
options, customer specific ones are added to the type conde using the corresponding + code.
The ABB functional safety solution complies with the
requirements of the new European Union machinery
directive 2006/42/EC. This directive is associated
with standards like IEC 62061 (Safety Integrity Level) and ISO 13849-1 (Performance Level), which require both a documented and proven safety performance and lifecycle approach to safety. Safe
torque-off is a certified solution offering SIL2 and PLD (Cat.3) safety levels.
ABB drives can be provided, as an option, with
the safe torque-off function. Safe torque-off can be
used for the prevention of unexpected start-up and
represents a cost-effective and certified solution for
basic safety. Other safety functions include Safe Stop 1 (SS1) and Safely-Limited Speed (SLS), which
can be used to achieve SIL2 or PL d (Cat.3) safety
The wall-mounted drive, ACS800-1 offers all that you
need up to 200 kW. All important features and options
are built inside the drive: line choke, EMC filter, brake
chopper etc. The user gets everything in a single and
complete IP21 or IP55 package. Still the drives is also
extremely small. A wide range of software alternatives
makes this drive suitable for any application.

Easy low harmonic solution
ABB’s low harmonic drives offer an easy low harmonic
solution incorporated in the drive. The solution to overcome harmonic issues simply comes with the drive without the need for additional filtering equipment or complicated multi-pulse
Beats external solutions
When compared to multi-pulse transformer solutions, the ACS800-37 does not require a dedicated transformer and thus is simpler in terms of cabling arrangements and requires less floor space. Harmonic performance is better than with
12- and 18-pulse solutions, handling online imbalance or other shortcomings in the supply network. Passive or active external filtering devices are avoided with the ACS800-37, making the solution compact and simple. Another advantage of the ACS800-37 is that it always operates with power factor 1.
Extensive range of features
