Single drive modules are designed to be installed into a customerâ€™s own cabinet. Modules enable OEMs, system integrators and panel builders to build their own drive solutions using ABB drive technology. This gives many of the advantages of ABB drives e.g. DTC motor control, adaptive programming and a wide range of options: both inbuilt and external. ABB provides detailed cabinet installation instructions and other support material to help customers build their own solutions. Modules for single drives require an AC supply.
Multidrive modules, ACS800-x04
Multidrive modules are designed for drive systems that feature a common DC bus for the flow of energy from the supply modules to the drive modules. Several types of modules are available: inverter modules that contain all the drive technology and different types of supply units that convert the AC supply from the mains into a DC supply for the inverter modules.
