General purpose drives are simple to buy, install, configure and use, saving considerable time. The drives have common user and process interfaces with fieldbuses, common software tools for sizing, commissioning, maintenance and common spare parts.
ABB general purpose drives can be used in a wide range of industries. Typical applications include pump, fan and constant torque use, such as conveyors. General purpose drives are ideal in those situations where there is a need for simplicity to install, commission and use and where customizing or special product engineering is not required. The drives include several features as standard, such as swinging choke, EMC filter and control panel. All drives are tested with full load at the factory ensuring premium quality.
Energy efficiency achieved with general purpose drives can be easily monitored using the built-in counters, which display energy savings in kilowatt hours, carbon dioxide emissions or local currencies.
