ABB Motion Drives and Motors

ABB offer a range of servo drives to solve motion applications. Our range offers 200VAC and 400VAC drives capable of simple analog control, Pulse Train Output demand (PTO) and real-time Ethernet with integrated Safe Torque Off (STO) and programming options.

Motion programming provides solutions to application such as indexing drives, while more advanced programmable motion features can solve the entire motion application in many cases, including HMI interaction. More information on intelligent drives solutions here

Real-time Ethernet is available based on the open standards including -

  • Powerlink
  • EtherCAT
  • EtherNet/IP
  • Modbus TCP
  • Profinet IO

ABB motion drives, control both rotary and linear AC servo motors, and can also control AC motors V/Hz and closed loop vector control and are available from 1.6 A single phase through to 65A three phase with common functionality.

For our latest servodrive products choose on of the following:

105 - 264VAC 1 or 3 phase - MicroFlex e190

ABB’s new MicroFlex e190 servo drive and e-Series servo motors, ensure optimized machine designs for a variety of motion applications.

230 - 480 VAC 3 phase- MotiFlex e180

MotiFlex e180 is a versatile drive with four frames sizes and nominal currents from 2.3 to 40 A with 200% servo-duty. It can be used for stand-alone single axis control, in decentralized motion systems as positioning drives and in high performance centralized control systems.

Flexible connectivity and machine control solutions

MicroFlex and MotiFlex servo drives combined with e-Series motors as part of ABB’s motion control solutions including human-machine interfaces (HMI), programmable logic controllers (PLC), safety technology and extending to multi-axis motion controllers, high performance servo drives, and rotary servo motors. All of which seamlessly integrate to provide complete machine control solutions.

Matched performance, unrivaled flexibility

MicroFlex e190 and MotiFlex e180 can be used for stand-alone single axis control, in centralized systems for multi-axis control or as the master drive controlling other drives and axis. Simple indexing , electronic gearing and task such as registration control and flying shear motion can all be implemented by motion programming.
