DCS800-PC cabinet drives, available from 3 to 500 horsepower at 230 and 480 volt, feature field-proven DCS800 power modules that are fully integrated into a robust drive system. The DCS800-PC cabinet drive is packed with features that are valued by American industry.
Those features include:
UL listing; built in the USA
Welded enclosures made of 12 gauge steel with multi-point door latching mechanism
Oversized forced air cooling system optimized by ABB engineers to maximize heat removal
Cabinet and drive fans that run only when needed
Cabinet filter that can be changed from the outside; no need to shut down the line
Intelligent E-stop circuit that ensures power is shut off before the contactor opens
Fully documented; easy to integrate into your machine
DCS800 cabinet drives are ideal for a variety of industries including metals, mining, rubber and plastics, material handling, wood products and non-motoric. Applications include rolling mills, piercing mills, mine hoists, extruders, rubber mixers, cranes, veneer lines, and non-motoric applications such as battery chargers, electromagnets, and electrolysis. The DCS800 is most frequently used with shunt-wound DC motors but can also be used with specialty DC motors including permanent magnet DC motors, series wound motors, traction motors, and stab-shunt motors. Consult ABB Application Engineering when a specialty motor is used.
The emergency stop circuit can be adapted to provide safety functions Safe-Torque-Off (STO) or Safe-Stop 1 (SS1) if one or both standard relays is replaced with safety relays. This is possible because the standard e-stop circuit first commands the drive to decelerate (Off3) and then cuts off the power in two ways, by sending a signal to the drive (Off2) and then by opening the input contactor. This will provide compliance with SIL2 / PLd of IEC 62061 and IEC13849-2. Contact ABB for more information.
