ABB have announced the Australian launch of their new drive configuration tool DriveConfig kit. The kit is a PC configuration tool for ABB component drives ACS55, offering fast and safe configuration of unpowered drives.
DriveConfig enables parameter setting and software updating without the need for a power connection. The kit features on-line drive control and monitoring of up to four signals simultaneously.
DriveConfig 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 the file.
- Unpowered drive configuration
- Viewing and setting parameters in offline mode
- Editing, saving and downloading parameters
- Comparing parameters
- Graphical and numerical signal monitoring
- Drive control (start, stop and reference)
When used with the ACS55 drive, the kit brings additional value to processes by saving time and ensuring safety. DriveConfig kit includes: Hardware and cables, PC software, User's manual in English (hardcopy and PDF), Battery charger and Serial port (RFDT-01) / USB adapter (RFDT-02).
The ABB ACS55 Component Drive continues in the tradition of ABB AC Drives being simple to buy, install, configure and use, saving considerable time. The ACS55 can easily be integrated into existing or smaller panels, replacing contactors and motor starters due to its compact size as well as new installations or wherever energy savings of small AC induction motors is desired.
