ABB DCS800 VFDThe practical requirements of a modern DC VFD are extremely diverse. A DC drive should be full of features and easy to use which sometimes, isn’t a simple task. The challenge is to find an innovative solution which excels in both, and the solution, is the ABB DCS800 VFD.

The ABB DCS800 VFD offers a simple interface and rich feature set, offering ease of commissioning and smooth adaptation to specific applications. The ABB DCS800 VFD has the widest power ranges in the industry from 10 horsepower through 2,500 horsepower in single VFD module packages and solutions through 1200 volts and 20,000 amps.

The ABB DCS800 VFD has the most advanced digital controller of any DC drive on the ABB power platform. This means that there are 16-bit analog input / output; 5 millisecond response time for overriding control; and integrated speed, torque, PID, and voltage controls as standard features. This makes the automatic tuning feature of the ACS800 simple to commission, macros to simplify setup, and adaptive programming feature that allows ease of custom requirements within the application. The ABB DCS800 VFD is the latest digital technology on a proven power platform.

ABB DCS800 VFD Programming and Communications

ABB DCS800 VFDAdaptive Programming (AP) offers the ability to customize the drive to needs without installation of additional hardware to the ABB DCS800 VFD. Adaptive Programming within the ABB DCS800 VFD also allows the user to change how a digital output works, add a PI Controller, and filter an analog input. The DCS800 can be programmed with the control panel or by using the ABB PC-Based software, DriveWindow Light, which is included with every ACS800 VFD. Adaptive Programming features the flexibility users need to make the drive work to required specifications.

ABB offers a wide range of software to make accessing, programming and diagnostics easier to communicate with the ACS800 than ever before. DriveWindow Light is a powerful PC-Based tool to start up and interface with the ACS800, and DriveWindow Light is included with every ACS800 drive module. More complex applications and systems use High Speed DriveWindow Tool with a host of features, high speed data, and clear graphical presentation of the application operations that make it a valuable addition to any DC Drive System.

For Control Builder users, ABB CoDeSys offers all t he tools needed to create and modify applications. If additional programming or software is needed beyond the CoDeSys, ABB will provide control builders with its own web page with full internet access.

ABB DCS800 VFD Adaptability

The ABB DCS800 VFD functionality increases according to the requirements of the DCS800 user. The user has the ability to include plug-in options such as field bus modules, input / output extension modules, and fiber-optic communication modules. ABB’s field bus alternatives feature full access to drive control and status words to system diagnostics. This makes the choice of automation systems completely independent from the choice of using an ABB DCS800 VFD versus the competition. The ABB DCS800 VFD also offers the adaptability of Control Builder; Control Builder is a tool that puts fully programmable PLC (prgrammable logic control) inside the drive. Control Builder can modify the drive operation, interface, or create entirely new functions for the application equipment.

Excellent Versus Horrible Packaging When Shipping A VFD

Shipping A VFD

When Shipping A VFD, These Are Examples Of Perfect Packaging Versus Terrible Packaging.

Shipping a VFD (variable frequency drive) safely is important because electronic components can be easily damaged due to poor packaging. When shipping a VFD, the first step to safely package the VFD is to locate an appropriatesize box for everything you intend to ship. When using larger boxes, keep in mind this will mean higher shipping fees from the carrier, and large boxes are unnecessary if you’re shipping small items.

When shipping a VFD, always either use a box supplied by the VFD manufacturer, specifically designed for the VFD, or a cardboard box with thick sidewalls that will not break during shipment.Once an appropriate box has been located, gently place the items in the box and use plenty of packaging materials within the box to keep the VFD safe during shipment. You can use Styrofoam, newspaper, bubble wrap, or any other type of shipping material that will keep the VFD protected within the box during shipment.Once the variable speed drive has been safely boxed up, seal the box with clear shipping tape. Masking tape and duct tape are not recommended and will not be accepted by most shipping carriers. Clear packaging tape is easy to find and holds cardboard better.

Precision Electric receives VFD Drives that are damaged during shipping nearly every day, but for the most part, VFD Drive users are aware that it’s important to package equipment safely when shipping a VFD, no matter how far of a distance the drive will be shipping.
