ABB general purpose drive, ACS310 is easy to select and easy to use. It is enough for most basic applications with no high overload demands. ACS310 is suitable for wide range of variable torque applications and simple machines.
The drive’s dedicated pump and fan features lower operating costs, boost energy efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions. Included amongs these features are built-in PID controllers and PFC (pump and fan control) that varies the drive’s performance in response to changes in pressure, flow or other external data.
Among the pre-programmed protection functions is pump cleaning. This prevents pump and pipe clogging by initiating a sequence of forward and reverse runs of the pump to clean the impeller.
Within pumping applications, energy savings can be up to 50 percent, compared to direct-on-line motor-driven systems that use mechanical flow control methods. The ABB
general purpose drives provide built-in features for efficient energy management. Energy savings can be easily monitored using the built-in counters that display energy savings in
kilowatt hours and saved carbon dioxide emissions. The savings can also be displayed in local currencies.
The compact design and uniform dimensions make cabinet mounting of the drive straightforward, thereby providing a fast and space saving installation. The ACS310 drives have an embedded Modbus interface for system monitoring that saves the cost of external fieldbus devices and enables to integrate the drives easily with PLC. When combined with preprogrammed application macros, an intuitive user interface and several assistant screens, installation time is further reduced while speeding up parameter setting and drive commissioning.
The ACS310 drives meet the needs of OEMs, logistical and technical distributors as well as the requirements of end users with pumping and ventilation applications. The drives
are supported by one of the most extensive global sales and service networks with presence in over 100 countries.
