The micro-drive features a built-in PLC, and will include safety functionality meeting IEC 61508 standards and support various networks, including Ethernet/IP, MODBUS/TCP, and the soon-to-be-released CC-Link IE TSN. The FR-E800 Series is designed for engineering, technology, and product managers in industries such as packaging, material handling, food and beverage, an ...
ABB has expanded its drives offering to include the ACS6080 medium voltage (MV) drive for critical applications. The new drive introduces a breakthrough control technology, developed by ABB, that brings high performance motor control to demanding processes used in industries such as mining, metals and marine. The drive also enables plants to operate more efficiently and produce higher quality output.   Traditionally, achieving high dynamic performance and excellent power quality needed har ...
Electric motors are often at the spearhead of modern production systems, whether in metal processing lines, robotic machining cells, or building and office automation systems. The motors we see today have certainly benefited from advances in electric materials, manufacturing efficiencies, and analytical tools. However, their design principles have remained the same for over 100 years in the case of the workhorse asynchronous (or induction) alternating current (AC) motor. Rather, the remarkable p ...
