ABB AC Drives ACS 100

frequency converters
for speed control of
0.37 to 2.2 kW squirrel cage motors

No motor is too small to be controlled.

Control made easy

ABB’s small AC drive

The ACS 100 drive is designed to offer a cost-
efficient and easy-to-use solution for controlling
small AC motors for 0.37 - 2.2 kW, 200 V - 240 V.
The energy and maintenance savings associated
with ABB AC Drives technology are now avail-
able for even the smallest of motors.
The ACS 100 ensures:
• Optimal speed for every process condition
• Smooth, stepless speed control
High quality ceramics with smooth and precise material handling.
• Decrease of the strain on the motor and the
whole mechanical system Fast installation and start-up
• Cutting of service and maintenance costs
In order to ensure fast and easy installation and
• Increase of productivity
commissioning the ACS 100 is based on a
• Pay-back time as short
“hook-up and run” principle:
as a few months
• Din-rail mounting
• No panel and no parameter settings are
required for the basic drive.
Rapid customisation, however, is also un-
complicated with an optional control panel.
Optimal process control increas-
es the quality of food products

Precise control
of a wide range of processes
Due to the fast and precise speed control of
the ACS 100, uniform end-product quality can
be achieved cost-efficiently. ACS 100 is suitable
for machinery applications such as conveying,
packaging, mixing, ventilation, pumping and
the like. The ACS 100 offers the benefits of
efficient control to virtually every type of
industrial process where small AC motors are Water pressure controlled by pump speed keeps the shower

Efficiency in every phase

The driving force behind the ACS 100 drive
concept is to cut your production costs and
thus increase your profit. The best way to
achieve this is to enhance efficiency at every
stage ofyour manufacturing process during the
whole life-cycle of the system — from design
andengineering to installation and maintenance.

DIN-rail mounting Flange mounting Wall mounting

In addition to traditional wall mounting and time saving DIN-rail mounting, the ACS 100 offers the added feature of flange mounting. This way the heat
sink can be placed outside the cabinet and little heat will be dissipated inside. The natural cooling system increases the drive’s reliability.
