Better performance.
Less energy.

The ACS180 is a compact, robust, and adaptable variable speed drive (VSD) for applications up to 22 kW. This easy-to-use compact VSD offers excellent performance and quality at superior value with all essential machinery application features embedded.

The ACS180 has been designed specifically for OEM’s and system integrators across several industries, including food & beverage, materials handling, textiles, logistics, printing and packaging, plastics and commercial appliances.

Key features include:

  • Built-in EMC filter
  • Built-in STO
  • Built-in Modbus RTU
  • Sensorless vector control

Unbelievable? See it for yourself

It’s often a marathon, never a sprint.

ACS180 is designed to run your motors based on the current demands of your processes rather than running them at full speed and reducing output using mechanical controls like throttles, dampers, or gears, and help our customers secure a more sustainable future by reducing energy consumption and CO₂ emissions.

Energy optimization function can automatically adjust the motor flux to its most efficient level: this helps reduce motor current and thus reduce power consumption and noise.

Even the smallest energy savings contribute to benefits for our planet, people and businesses alike.

Key features include:

  • Fulfills new Ecodesign regulation
  • Efficiency class: IE2
  • Reduces energy consumption and CO₂ emissions
  • Energy saving calculators monitors used and saved energy by the motor

Reliable operation, even in the harshest of environments

The ACS180 comes complete with a set of robust features that ensure reliable operations in harsh conditions. The drive has been designed to operate in temperatures up to 60 °C and without any form of derating when operating in temperatures up to 50 °C.

The ACS180 also includes a set of embedded ‘overcurrent’, ‘short circuit’, ‘motor-phase loss’ and ‘motor-phase ground’ functions to protect the drive, motor and application, along with dedicated sensors for accurate earth fault protection. The circuit boards are coated as standard to improve against adverse environmental conditions.

Key features include:

  • Coated circuit boards as standard.
  • Minimal airflow through the electronics.
  • Earth fault protection.
  • Design for up to 50 °C without derating.
  • Drives are tested at nominal temperatures with full loads before delivery.
