ABB General Purpose Drives - ACS310

AC Drives For Pump and Fan Applications

ABB general purpose drives, ACS310, are dedicated to variable torque applications such as booster pumps and centrifugal fans.

The drive's dedicated pump and fan features lower operating costs, boost energy efficiency and reduce C02 emissions. Included among these features are built-in PID controllers and PFC (pump and fan control) that vary the drive's performance in response to changes in pressure, flow or other external data.

Among the pre-programmed protection functions is pump cleaning. This prevents pump and pipes from clogging by initiating a sequence of forward and reverse runs of the pump to clean the impeller.

Within pumping applications, energy savings up to 50 percent can be achieved compared to direct-on-line motor-driven systems that use mechanical flow control methods. The ABB general purpose drives provide built-in features for efficient energy management. Energy savings can be easily monitored using the built-in counters that display energy savings in kilowatt hours and saved carbon dioxide emissions. The savings can also be displayed in local currencies.

The compact design and uniform dimensions make cabinet mounting of the drive straightforward, thereby providing speedy and space saving installation. The ACS310 drive has an embedded Modbus interface for system monitoring and control that saves the cost of external fieldbus devices and enables easy integration of the drives with PLC. When combined with preprogrammed application macros, an intuitive user interface and several assistant screens, installation time is further reduced while speeding up parameter setting and drive commissioning.

The ACS310 drives meet the needs of logistical and technical distributors as well as the requirements of end users with pumping and ventiliation applications. The drives are supported by one of the most extensive global sales and service networks with presence in over 100 countries.

Typical Applications

The ACS310 drive is specifically designed to meet the variable torque loads demanded by centrifugal fans and pumps. The result is maximum application uptime, reduced maintenance cost and higher energy savings.

A Booster Pump System

A booster pump system is designed to boost supplied water pressure to a predetermined level in water and wastewater plants. The ACS310 drive features pump and fan control (PFC) for use where several parallel pumps are operated together and the required flow rate is variable.

PID control is available to allow the process to accurately maintain a pressure setpoint by adjusting the control outputs, thus allowing for precise control within difficult processes. A sleep & boost function detects slow rotation and runs the pump to boost pressure prior to shutdown. The pressure is continuously monitored and pumping restarts when the pressure falls below the minimum level.

Irrigation systems

Irrigation systems, whether agricultural, horticultural or those used on golf courses, have a common demand for a reliable and efficient flow of water.

The built-in real-time clock provides true time and date stamps that control the start and stop times of watering based on the daily demand profile. Soft pipe filling provides a pump with soft-start, enabling a smooth build-up of flow in pipes while increasing the life time of the pipe work and pumping system.

Level Control

Level control is used to adjust the filling or emptying of storage tanks. Storage tanks may be located within processes such as pulp and paper for supplying process fluids like wastewater. The drive has signal supervision for level control and a pipe cleaning feature, thereby preventing solids from building up on pumps impellers or the tank walls.

Storage tanks are often mounted in ndownarrow locations, with limited space for components like AC drives. The compact size and various mounting methods of the ACS310 drives enables easy installation and space savings in new installations and retrofits.

Wood Drying Kilns

Wood drying kilns' have a high demand for powerful and efficient ventilation to dry out the wood. In wood kilns centrifugal fans and AC drives are used to control the air flow demand. To increase the kilns' capacity, multiple fans may be controlled via one drive by using the pump and fan control (PFC) feature. At the start of the drying process, the relative humidity is high thus there is a demand for higher air flow rates. As the wood dries out the auxiliary fans may shut-down, thereby saving energy use and reducing maintenance.

Features

Pump and Fan Control (PFC) Feature to Control Pumps and Fans in Parallel

One drive controls several pumps or fans and eliminates the need for an external programmable logic controller. Reduces motor stress and increases lifetime when auxiliary motors are driven according to the needed pump/fan capacity. Interlock function enables one motor to be disengaged from the main supply while others continue operating in parallel.

Soft Pump and Fan Control Feature

Reduces unwanted pressure peaks in pumps and pipelines when an auxiliary motor is started. Reduces inrush current to the power network while connecting new auxiliary motors

Pump Protection Functions

Integrated protection and control with pre-programmed features like pipe cleaning, pipefill, inlet/outlet pressure supervision and detection of under or over load for preventative maintenance. Improves process control and system reliability. Integrates system protection. Smoother processes: improved and optimized system. Longer life for pump and fan system, reduced maintenance costs.

PID Controllers

Varies the drive's performance according to the need of the application.

Embedded Modbus EIA-485 Fieldbus Interface

No need for external fieldbus options. Integrated and compact design.

On/Off Cooling Fan Control

Cooling fan rotates only when the drive is running, thereby cooling only when needed.

Software Controlled Phase Inversion

Fast and easy way to change the phase order of the motor rotation.

Short Parameter Menu View

Only the most needed drive parameters are shown on the drive's parameter view. Complete parameter view can be changed by setting one parameter.

Energy Optimizer

Improved motor efficiency with intelligent drive control method, especially while operating on partial centrifugal loads.

Energy Efficiency Counters

Several counters to illustrate saved energy (kWh), carbon-dioxide emissions (C02) and cost in local currency.

Full Output Current at 50 ºC Ambient

Drive can be operated in ambient temperatures up to 50 ºC without derating the output current.

Load Analyzer

Load analyzer saves process data, such as current and torque values, which can be used to analyze the process and dimensioning of the drive and motor.

Compact Size and Flexible Mounting Options

Drives high power-to-size ratio facilitates efficient cabinet space usage. Optimum installation layout. Flexible installation with screw or DIN rail mounting. Drive can be installed sideways or side-to-side.

User Interfaces

Assistant control panel with clear alphanumerical dynamic menus, real time clock and 14 languages. Basic panel with numerical display.

Maintenance Assistant

Monitors consumed energy (kWh), running hours or motor rotation.

Commissioning Assistants

Easy set up of parameters for PID controllers, real-time clock, serial communication, drive optimizer and drive startup.

Drive Protection

Motor output and I/O protected against wiring faults. Protection against unstable supply networks. Coated boards as standard.
