Introduction to ACS550

The ACS550 drives are simple to buy, install, configure and use, saving considerable time. The drives have common user and process interfaces with fieldbuses, common software tools for sizing, commissioning, maintenance and common spare parts.

ABB general purpose
drives ABB general purpose drives are simple to buy, install, configure and use, saving considerable time. They are widely available through ABB channel partners. The drives have common user and process interfaces with fieldbuses, common software tools for sizing, commissioning, maintenance and common spare parts.

Applications
ABB general purpose drives can be used in a wide range of industries. Typical applications include pump, fan and constant torque use, such as conveyors. ABB general purpose drives are ideal in those situations where there is a need for simplicity to install, commission and use and where customizing or special product engineering is not required.

FeatureAdvantageBenefit
Energy efficiency countersSeveral counters to illustrate saved energy (kWh), carbondioxide emissions (CO2) and cost in local currency.Shows direct impact on energy bill and helps control operational expenditure (OPEX).
Load analyzerLoad analyzer saves process data, such as current and torque values, which can be used to analyze the process and dimensioning of the drive and motor.Optimized dimensioning of the drive, motor and process.
FlashDrop toolFaster and easier drive setup and commissioning.Patented, fast, safe and trouble-free parametrization method without electricity.
Assistant control panelTwo soft-keys, function of which changes according to the state of the panel.
Built-in help function via dedicated button.
Real-time clock, allows timed tracing of faults and setting of parameters to activate at various times of day.
Changed parameters -menu.
Easy commissioning.
Fast setup.
Easier configuration.
Rapid fault diagnosis.
Quick access to recent parameter changes.
Commissioning assistantsPID controller, real-time clock, serial communications assistant, drive optimizer, startup assistant.Easy setup of parameters.
Maintenance assistantMonitors consumed energy (kWh), running hours or motor rotation.Takes care of preventative maintenance of drive, the motor or run application.
Intuitive featuresNoise optimization.
Increases switching frequency of drive when drive temperature is reduced.
Controlled cooling fan: the drive is cooled only when necessary.
Considerable motor noise reduction.
Reduces inverter noise and improves energy efficiency.
ChokePatented swinging choke – matches the right inductance to the right load, thereby suppressing and reducing harmonics.Reduces total harmonic distortion (THD) emissions up to 25%.
Vector controlImproved motor control performance.Enables wider range of applications.
Built-in EMC filterCategory C2 (1st environment) and category C3 (2nd environment) RFI filters as standard.No need for additional external filtering.
Brake chopperBuilt-in up to 11 kW.Reduced cost.
ConnectivityBuilt-in Modbus using EIA-485.
Simple to install:
• Easy connection of cables
• Easy connection to external fieldbus systems through multiple
• I/Os and plug-in options
Reduced cost.
Reduced installation time.
Secure cable connections.
Mounting templateSupplied separately with unit.Quick and easy to mark mounting screw holes on installation surface.
RoHS compliantACS550 drives comply with EU Directive RoHS 2002/95/CE restricting the use of certaing hazardous substances.Environmentally friendly product.
