DCS800 DC Drives have connectivity to major automation systems. This is achieved with a dedicated gateway concept between the fieldbus systems and ABB drives.
The fieldbus gateway module can easily be mounted inside the drive. As a result of the wide range of fieldbus gateways, your choice of automation system is independent from your decision to use first-class ABB drives.
The drive control word (16 bit) provides a wide variety of functions from start, stop and reset to ramp generator control.
Typical setpoint values like speed, torque and position can be transmitted to the drive with 15 bit accuracy.
A set of drive parameters and/or actual signals, like torque, speed, position, current etc., can be selected for cyclic data transfer providing fast data for operators and the manufacturing process.
Accurate and reliable diagnostic information can be obtained via the drive alarm, limit and fault words, reducing the drive down time and, therefore, the downtime of the manufacturing process.
Drive parameter handling
Total integration of the drives in the production process is achieved by single parameter read/write up to complete parameter set-up or download.
Easy to expand
Serial communication simplifies the latest trend of modular machine design enabling the installation to be expanded at a later stage with low effort.
