Once again the drives and motors catalogue includes the Product Quickfinder, an easy-to-read table that helps you produce a shortlist of drives and motors for your application from among the large number of products in the ABB range. To make it easier to find the correct equipment, the catalogue also includes the Featurefinder, helping users find exactly the right product features to fit specific applications.
Purchasing a drive or motor is made easier with the inclusion of prices for each product within the main data tables. Further help can be gained from ABB Drives Alliance members and ABB Motor Service Partners, a full list of which appears in the catalogue.
New products featured in the catalogue include extensions to the medium voltage drive range, with ratings now available up to 35 MW.
Motor control centre (MCC) integrators working for water and wastewater clients will now find it easier to incorporate large powers into their cabinets with the addition of a new power range for the ACQ810 modules. The “G” frame replaces the higher powered module and extends the power rating up to 500 kW at 500 V. The module is mounted on wheels for easy manual handling.
Among the latest ABB offering is the highly energy-efficient synchronous reluctance motor and drive package (SynRM). An innovative motor design that has no rotor windings ensures the rotor has virtually no power losses. The package includes a matched motor and drive with dedicated software and offers smooth, efficient process control and optimal use of energy.
As well as drives and motors, the latest catalogue offers details of ABB’s extensive range of machine control products such as human-machine interfaces (HMI), programmable logic controllers (PLC) and safety technology, all of which can be easily integrated to build complete machine control solutions for many different industrial applications.
For automation applications, the AC500-S is the new safety PLC that fulfils the highest safety requirements and standards. The PLC is TÜV certified up to SIL3 (IEC 62061) and PL e (ISO13849).
The catalogue also details the ABB motor-drive combinations, allowing motors and drives to be matched to suit any demanding process. Many ABB drives are also ATEX certified for use with an ABB motor for hazardous areas.
With information on services for drives and motor support, software for drive commissioning and maintenance and many other tasks and remote monitoring options, the 2013 ABB Drives and Motors catalogue is a complete guide to ABB drives, motors and control products.
