Where can it be used?

The ABB industrial drive is targeted at demanding industrial applications offering constant torque and torque at zero speed. Suitable applications include cranes, winders, hoists, extruders, heavy conveyors and crushers. Applications with high breakaway torque, like rubber mixers and high precision applications like paper machines and engine dynamometers are easily handled by the drive. The ACS880 is a system drive that is fully scaleable and can be tailored to any application, allowing architecture to be either centralised (traditional PLC approach) or de-centralised, by operating the safety and the application programmes inside the drive, which saves installation and cabling costs.
