ABB drive ACS150 compact series

ABB component drives are designed to be incorporated into a wide variety of machines such as mixers, conveyors, fans or pumps or anywhere where a fixed speed motor needs to go variable speed motor. The ABB component drives meet the requirements of OEMs, machinery builders and panel builders. These drives are widely available through the ABB distribution network. The drives are easy to select and provide a range of built-in features as standard including PID control, brake chopper, fixed keypad and speed control potentiometer.

- Worldwide availability through logistical distributors 
- User-friendly LCD control panel and integrated potentiometer 
- Flexible mounting alternatives 
- PID control 
- Integrated EMC filter
- Built-in brake chopper 
- FlashDrop tool for fast drive commissioning

ABB frequency inverter ACS150 compact series highlights

Typical applications

ABB component drives bring speed control benefits to a wide variety of applications.

In mixing applications the drive provides high starting torque which benefits the start of the mixing operation. The silent operation mode adjusts the switching frequency of the drive to a higher level after the high-torque start, resulting in lower audible noise. The FlashDrop tool provides a quick and safe way to configure multiple drives for identical mixer applications.

In conveyors the belt speed can be controlled using a drive and a motor. Production lines often have multiple stages, including conveyors, which need to be efficiently linked with each other to provide high production output. A drive provides smooth start and stop of the conveyor, thereby reducing mechanical stress and lowering maintenance costs.

A heat pump system consists of an indoor unit with fan and an outdoor unit with a compressor and a blower. The heat pump cools indoor environment by gathering heat from air, and transferring the heat to air outside. The outdoor unit uses the compressor and the blower to dissipate the heat. The cooled air is blown indoors by fans located in the indoor unit. Drive allows the user to variably control the cooling power based on customer request. AC drives optimizes systems’ energy efficiency and smoothens system operation.

Fans are used for process cooling and ventilation in industrial, commercial and domestic environments. Using a drive to control air fl ow enables energy savings compared to mechanical fl ow control methods. An ABB drive has integrated PID control which provides optimal air fl ow by adjusting the fan speed based on a given reference value. Compact size and various mounting methods enable fl exible system design.

ABB drive ACS150 series control connections and interfaces

Application macros are preprogrammed parameter sets. When starting up the drive, the user typically selects one of the macros that is best suited for the application. The diagram below gives an overview of ACS150 control connections and shows the default I/O connections for the ABB standard macro.
ABB component drives have six standard macros:
- ABB standard macro
- 3-wire macro 
- Alternate macro 
- Motor potentiometer macro 
- Hand/auto macro 
- PID control macro

In addition to the standard macros the user can create three user macros. The user macro allows the user to save the parameter settings for later use.

Options for ABB vfd ACS150 series

FlashDrop tool
FlashDrop is a powerful palm sized tool for fast and easy parameter selecting and setting. It gives the possibility to hide selected parameters to protect the machine. Only the parameters needed in the application are shown. The tool can copy parameters between two drives or between a PC and a drive. All the above can be done without a power connection to the drive – in fact, it is not even necessary to unpack the drive.

DrivePM (Drive parameter manager) is a tool to create, edit and copy parameter sets for FlashDrop. For each parameter/ group the user has a possibility to hide it, which means that the drive user does not see the parameter/group at all.

DrivePM requirements 
- Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7 
- Free serial port from a PC

FlashDrop package includes 
- FlashDrop tool 
- DrivePM software on a CD-rom 
- User’s manual in pdf-format on the previous CD-rom 
- Cable for connection between the PC and FlashDrop 
- Battery charger

Protection class NEMA 1
The NEMA 1 kit includes a connection box for finger protection, conduit tube installation, and a hood for protection against dirt and dust.

Brake resistors
All ACS150 drives are configured with a built-in brake chopper capable of 100% braking. By connecting an external resistor, you can enable the dynamic braking function. The minimum and maximum resistance and the required power is show in the table. Ensure the resistor purchased does not exceed the maximum resistance nor is smaller than the minimum resistance.
