The ACS580 general purpose drive portfolio includes wall-mounted, packaged and cabinet-built drives. All variations feature Safe Torque Off (STO), common software including Adaptive Programming, and an intuitive control panel with USB connection.

Available in many different packages. Some of the most popular ones:

    • ACS580-01 drive A wall-mounted drive
    • ACS580-0P drive with bypass
    • ACS580-0P drive



The AC880 is an all-compatible ABB industrial drive, offered in a range of wall-mounted drives, drive modules and cabinet-built drives.

The ACS880-01 is a wall-mounted single drive compatible with a wide range of applications in a broad range of industries such as oil and gas, mining, metals, chemicals, cement, power plants, material handling, pulp and paper, sawmills and marine. At the heart of the drive is direct torque control (DTC), ABB’s premier motor control technology, to deliver highest level of performance. Direct torque control (DTC) provides precise speed and torque control for all applications and supports virtually any type of motor.

The ACS880 has all the essential features built-in reducing the time required for engineering, installation and commissioning. A wide range of options are also available to optimize the drive for different requirements, including certified, integrated safety features.

  • Wall mounted drives: The drive supports wall-mounting as standard and cabinet mounting as an option. Also, offers enclosure classes up to IP55, making it suitable for most environments and installations. ACS880-01 drives have all the essential features built-in including as standard a choke for harmonic filtering as well as options like a brake chopper, EMC filter and communication protocol adapter, functional safety and I/O extension modules.
  • Cabinet-built single drives:
    Our cabinet-built single drives are built to order, meeting your needs regardless of the technical challenges. The drive configuration includes a rectifier, DC link, inverter, fuses, line choke and a main switch, all built into a compact cabinet for easy assembly and commissioning.
    The ACS880-07 offers a wide variety of standardized configurations for different application requirements, from line contactors, to preventing unexpected motor starts. If the application requires more, ABB’s Order-Based Engineering services can add special features to the standard product, such as an additional cabinet for customer-specific devices. The robust design and enclosures up to IP54 make the ACS880-07 suitable for even very harsh environments.
