ACS150 Micro drive, Single phase Input variable speed drive (VSD)
The ACS150 brings a level of programmability to the micro drive. Programming is via parameters arranged together into easy to follow logical groups, and arranged into a 2 level menu (short and long view). A built-in low-cost keypad allows access to these parameters, and also to the menus associated with diagnostics and reference changing.
The ACS150 comes complete with analogue and digital I/O (see data sheet) to allow the drive to be wired to your control system. A 10V reference is available to be used as an external speed reference, and the drive has a built-in PID controller, to allow process variables like pressure, flow, temperature to be controlled without external devices, connect up a relevant 4-20ma sensor. The parameter set allows motor protection, fixed frequencies and skip frequencies to be configured, as well as a number of other useful control and maintenance functions.
The motor control is scalar control, so is suitable for simple applications without the need for accurate speed or torque control, like fans, pumps, simple conveyors and simple machines. The built-in PID controller allows the drive to control any measurable variable, and the diagnostics make machine maintenance easier.
No complex programming, simple built-in keypad with long or short menu view
Control via I/O, Built in 10 V ref for external potentiometer control
Built in PID controller
Built in Braking chopper as standard, converting kinetic energy to braking power (external resistor required)
Accel and Decel ramp rates, fixed frequencies available to program
As it is a VSD, motor protection is on-board, overcurrent, overvoltage, overloads all included
Protects motor output and motor miss-wiring, the drive reports a fault when power is connected to the motor terminals
Coated boards included as standard, protect against moisture and hostile particles
On board potentiometer for simple speed control
Small compact size with integral EMC filter
Multiple mounting configurations: wall or DIN Rail, back or side, IP20 rated
Unified height and depth across the sizes makes cabinet design easy (cable trays run parallel)
Can be programmed in the box with FlashDrop tool (stock no.621-1329), allowing fast and easy drive setup and commissioning for volume manufacturing without needing to apply power to the drive
The ABB logo clip can also be removed for OEM’s wishing to brand label
Please see the data sheets for dimensions etc.
Protection rating IP20
ABB ACS150 drives bring a number of benefits:
Built in PID controller for controlling plant variables
Improves motor speed control compared to DOL
Built in keypad easy to use
Helps to eliminate starting and stopping problems
May be networked with other automation equipment (via I/O)
Sophisticated motor protection and control
Sophisticated maintenance triggers
Single phase supply controlling a 3 phase motor
Motors may require de-rating when used in conjunction with motor speed controllers, as their cooling fans may not provide sufficient cooling when running slower, please contact ABB if help is required.
CE, C-Tick approvals, UL, cUL, GOST R and RoHS compliant
