ABB Drives - ACS580 UL Type 4X/IP66 Drive
Selecting the right drives for industrial applications is crucial, as performance demands are high and environments can be extreme. The ABB ACS580 UL Type 4X IP66 Drive emerges as a robust solution designed specifically for challenging industrial conditions.

Designed for Durability

  • Extreme Environment Compatibility: The ACS580 is tailored for operation in the toughest conditions — it’s perfect for both indoor and outdoor use, withstanding temperatures from -13 °F to 122 °F. Its construction is robust enough to handle the wet and corrosive environments typical in industries like food processing and agriculture.
  • Corrosion Resistance: This drive stands up to corrosive chemicals such as salt spray, ammonia, and chlorine, thanks to its UV-resistant sun shield and high-quality construction, ensuring long-lasting performance in harsh settings.

Enhanced Operational Efficiency

  • Remote Operation: Utilize Bluetooth connectivity to operate the drive remotely from up to 250 feet away, enhancing safety by staying clear of hazardous areas.
  • Simplified Setup: The ACS580 facilitates easy startup, commissioning, and tuning with apps like Drive Composer and Drivetune, streamlining operations and reducing downtime.

Integration and Installation Flexibility

  • Flange Mount Option: Install the drive inside a cabinet but with the heat sink outside, optimizing space and reducing internal cabinet temperature. This setup preserves the full UL Type 4X/IP66 rating of the enclosure.
  • Built-in Disconnect: An optional built-in UL98 lockable line disconnect simplifies installation and reduces costs by eliminating the need for a separate disconnect box.

Advanced Safety and Control

  • Safety Features: The drive includes a Safe Torque Off (STO) function that complies with the highest safety standards for industrial equipment (EN/IEC 61800-5-2, SIL 3, PL e).
  • Diverse Control Options: Supports numerous communication protocols such as EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, and PROFINET, ensuring easy integration into various industrial networks.

Application-Specific Customizations

  • Firmware Customizations: ABB offers specific firmware options for applications that require precise control, such as cavitation detection in pumps and specialized compressor control for refrigeration systems.

The ABB ACS580 UL Type 4X IP66 Drive exemplifies ABB’s commitment to delivering high-quality, durable, and versatile solutions for the most challenging industrial environments. Whether you’re dealing with extreme temperatures, moisture, or corrosive elements, this drive promises endurance and superior performance tailored to the unique demands of your operations.
