ABB micro drives bring speed control benefits to a wide variety of applications

In mixing applications the drive provides high starting torque which benefits the start of the mixing operation. The silent operation mode adjusts the switching frequency of the drive to a higher level after the high-torque start, resulting in lower audible noise. The FlashDrop tool provides a quick and safe way to configure multiple drives for identical mixer applications.

In conveyors the belt speed can be controlled using a drive and a motor. Production lines often have multiple stages, including conveyors, which need to be efficiently linked with each other to provide high production output. A drive provides smooth start and stop of the conveyor, thereby reducing mechanical stress and lowering maintenance costs.

A heat pump system consists of an indoor unit with fan and an outdoor unit with a compressor and a blower. The outdoor unit uses the compressor and the blower to dissipate the heat. The cooled air is blown indoors by fans located in the indoor unit. Drive allows the user to variably control the cooling power based on customer request. AC drives optimizes systems’ energy efficiency and smoothens system operation.

Fans are used for process cooling and ventilation in industrial, commercial and domestic environments. Using a drive to control air flow enables energy savings compared to mechanical flow control methods. An ABB drive has integrated PID control which provides optimal air flow by adjusting the fan speed based on a given reference value.
