ABB frequency inverter ACS355 general machinery series features, advantages and benefits.

High protection class drive
A range of ABB general machinery drives with IP66 and UL Type 4X protection classes is designed to excel in the harshest and most demanding of conditions. Designed for the food and beverage, textile, ceramics, pulp and paper and water and waste water industries, the drives are suitable for screws, mixers, pumps, fans and conveyers especially where the machine is exposed to dust, moisture and cleaning chemicals. The heat sink’s cooling fins are completely open from top to bottom, which allows easy washing to ensure no dirt adheres to the surfaces. A user control panel housed within a plastic window is designed to resist moist and dusty atmospheres. Furthermore, the cooling fan is located inside the drive, thereby eliminating the need for an external cooling fan and the subsequent maintenance of external moving parts. The wall mounted drive can be located close to the process and the operator. The drive features the assistant control panel as standard. The drive’s hygienic design and use of materials meeting current hygiene standards, means that the drive traps no bacteria and can withstand frequent washing. The drive is certified by NSF.

Interface options for ABB drive ACS355 series

Panel cover
The purpose of the panel cover is to protect the drive’s connection surfaces.The ACS355 drive is delivered with a panel cover as standard. In addition there are two alternative control panels available as options.

Basic control panel
The basic control panel features a single line numeric display. The panel can be used to control the drive, set the parameter values or copy them from one drive to another.

Assistant control panel
The assistant control panel features a multilingual alphanumeric display for easy drive programming. The control panel has various assistants and an built-in help function to guide the user. It includes a real time clock, which can be used during fault logging and in controlling the drive, such as start/stop. The control panel can be used for copying parameters for back up or for downloading to another drive. A large graphical display and soft keys make it extremely easy to navigate. The drive with IP66 enclosure has the assistant control panel as standard.

Potentiometer MPOT-01 with two switches: start/stop and forward/reverse. Polarity is selected with DIP switches. No external power source is needed for the potentiometer.

Panel mounting kits
To attach the control panel to the outside of a larger enclosure, two panel mounting kits are available. A simple and cost-efficient installation is possible with the ACS/H-CPEXT kit, while the OPMP-01 kit provides a more user-friendly solution, including a panel platform that enables the panel to be removed in the same way as a drive-mounted panel. The panel mounting kits include all hardware required, including 3 m extension cables and installation instructions.

Interface options for ABB vfd ACS355 series

Machine interfaces
The plug-in fieldbus modules bring connectivity to major automation systems. A single twisted pair cable avoids large amounts of conventional cabling, thereby reducing costs and increasing system reliabilty.
ACS355 supports the following fieldbus options: 
- CANopen 
- DeviceNet 
- EtherCAT 
- Ethernet IP / Modbus-TCP/IP
- LonWorks 
- Modbus-RTU 

ACS355 has one relay output as standard. The optional MREL-01 module offers three additional relay outputs, which can be configured for different functions with parameters.

The optional MTAC-01 module offers pulse encoder interface for speed measurement.

The optional auxiliary power module MPOW-01 enables the drive control circuitry to be operated under all conditions.

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

Terminal cover
The terminal cover is for protection of the I/O connections.

Clamping plates
The clamping plates are used for protection against electrical disturbances. The clamping plates with clamps are included in the drive package as standard.

Software tool options for ABB frequency inverter ACS355 series

DriveWindow Light
DriveWindow Light is an easy-to-use start-up and maintenance tool for ACS355 drives. It can be used in an offline mode, which enables parameter setting at the office even before going to the actual site. The parameter browser enables viewing, editing and saving of parameters. The parameter comparison feature makes it possible to compare parameter values between the drive and saved parameter files. With the parameter subset you can create your own parameter sets. Controlling of the drive is naturally one of the features in DriveWindow Light. With this software tool, you can monitor up to four signals simultaneously. This can be done in both graphical and numerical format. Any signal can be set to stop the monitoring from a predefined level. 

Sequence programming tool
DriveWindow Light allows the user to visually build and manipulate sequence programming parameters that are loaded into the ACS355. The programming is done in a graphical editor which displays each sequence step as an individual block. Sequence programming enables application specific programming. This new and easy way to preset sequences reduces the need for an external programmable logic control (PLC). In simple applications an external PLC can be left out.

Start-up wizards
Start-up wizards make the setting of parameters easy. Simply launch the wizard, select an appropriate assistant eg, for setting analog outputs, and all parameters related to this function are shown together with help pictures.

External options for ABB drive ACS355 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 the FlashDrop tool. 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 
- Free serial port from a PC (32bit)/WIN 7 (32bit)

FlashDrop package includes 
- FlashDrop tool 
- DrivePM software on a CD-rom 
- User’s manual in English and in pdf-format on the CD-rom 
- Cable OPCA-02 for connection between the PC and FlashDrop tool 
- Battery charger
