ABB DCS800 Power Converter Modules


The power converter modules DCS800-S0x have the protection class IP00 and are to be mounted in a cubicle or fi nger protected area. There are different sizes (D1, D2, D3, D4, D5, D6, D7), graduated in terms of current and voltage ranges.

All units are equipped with control panel DCS 800PAN. It can be snapped into place on the power converter module or installed in the switchgear cubicle door by means of a mounting kit.

Reference variables:

The voltage characteristics are shown in the table
beside. The DC voltage characteristics have been
calculated using the following assumptions:
• UVN = rated input terminal voltage, 3-phase
• Voltage tolerance ±10 %
• Internal voltage drop approx. 1%
• If a deviation or a voltage drop has to be taken
into consideration in compliance with IEC and
VDE standards, the output voltage or the output
current must be reduced by the actual factor
according to the table on the right.

ABB DCS800 DC Drive Dimensioning/DriveSize

Quality dimensioning

DriveSize is a PC program for helping the user to select an optimal converter and options, especially in those cases where a straightforward selection from a catalogue is not possible. Documents about the dimensioning based on actual load.

The default values make DriveSize simple to use, but the user is provided with many options for drive selection. The shortcut keys make drive selection easy while still honouring the relatively complicated rules. A manual selection mode is also supported.
DriveSize is currently used by more than 1000 engineers globally.

DriveSize is for drive system components 

• DCS converter modules
• DCS enclosed converters
• Group drives (line-ups)
• Drive options

DriveSize features

• Select an drive unit, incoming unit
• Calculate duty load cycles for converters
• Supply dimensioning results in graphical and numerical format
• Print and save the results

DCS800 DC Drive Startup Assistant

Faster and easier commissioning
The Startup Assistant serves in DCS800 DC Drives. It guides you actively through the commissioning procedure either by the control panel or ABB PC tools. It is multilingual, requests data with clear and plain text messages, and sets the required parameters to your needs. It also comes with an online info system with step-by-step reference to printed manuals.

On-line info system
To make it easier and more informative, there is an online info system available at each step, helping to set the correct values for each parameter and troubleshoot the problems.

Startup Assistant Features
• Easy and fast commissioning procedure
• Intelligent guide to assist you through the
• Your own language
• On-line info system always available
• Auto detection of connected hardware
The DCS800 DC Drive offers you all this as standard

DCS800 Power Converter Modules

The DCS800-S0x power converter module carries a NEMA TYPE OPEN (IP00) rating and must be mounted in a protective enclosure. There are seven different frame sizes, D1 through D7, graduated in terms of current and voltage.

Non-regenerative (2-Q) power converter modules are used when motor torque is always in the same direction or when significant stopping power is not required. It is not possible for a 2-Q drive to slow down an inertial load. The load will stop only due to friction, windage, or another form of load resistance.

Regenerative (4-Q) power converter modules are used when motor torque can occur in either direction. A 4-Q drive is able to start and stop an inertial load in both forward and reverse directions.
