ABB DC Industrial Drives

The DCS800 DC industrial drive is the latest from ABB, combining the newest control technology with a thyristor power platform that has been factory-proven all over the world. The DCS800 boasts a wider power range than any other DC drive on the market. The hardware and software are designed with you, the user in mind. Special features make installation and configuration simple and allow you to customize the application to your needs.


Industrial Applications

The DCS800 can be used in a wide range of industrial applications including:

  • Metals
  • Ski lifts
  • Material handling
  • Test rigs
  • Electrolysis
  • Printing
  • Food & Beverage
  • Plastic & Rubber
  • Pulp & Paper
  • Magnets
  • Battery Chargers
  • Mining


DCS800 DC Drive Promises

The drive meets the requirements of the most demanding drive applications. Embedded software functions offer upgrades to classic installations like 12-pulse, double motor operation, and field reversal.


Highlights

  • Reduced installation and commissioning work
  • Internal three phase exciter without additional external hardware(D1-D5)
  • Excellent control performance up to highest dynamic application in field weakening operation
  • All ACS800 PC tools (via DDCS) can be connected
  • Able to be customized to your needs with Adaptive programming and with option Control Builder
  • Flexible fieldbus system with built-in Modbus and numerous internally moutable fieldbus adapters

Virtually all DCS800 component parts are suitable for recycling.


PC Tool for ABB Drives

DriveWindow Light is an easy-to-use tool for your PC for start up and maintenance of your ABB drive. It is included with every DCS800 drive and has the following features:

  • User interface tool to view and set parameters
