Automation and motor control: ABB releases new ACS380 machinery drive

The ACS380 machinery drive is part of ABB’s all-compatible drives portfolio designed to offer technically compatible drive, as well as an all-compatible setup for people, process, business, and environmental goals. The ACS380 offers an intuitive control panel with an icon-based menu for easy and smart commissioning of the drive. All essential features are built-in as standard, which reduces the need for more hardware and simplifies drive selection.

The drive offers EMC and connectivity variants for ease of integration and connectivity appreciated by machine builders that install hundreds of drives per year. There is a fixed space in the machine for automation and motor control, and the drive needs to meet the space restrictions and connectivity requirements (fieldbus, I/O etc.). It really is one drive that fits different needs easy, from product customization to volume customers.

  • Part of ABB’s all-compatible drive family
  • Robust and compact drive with universal dimensions, suitable for machine builders
  • Available in power range 0.5 to 10 HP and voltages 200 to 480 V
  • Designed for accurate speed and torque control without more components

To further meet the needs of machine builders, ABB offers programmable logic controllers, human-machine interfaces, various motors and other low-voltage products for a complete machine control solution. These can be programmed using a single software suite called Automation Builder, including Drive composer and other useful tools to design and monitor the machine’s control logic.


ABB is a pioneering technology leader in electrification products, robotics and motion, industrial automation and power grids, serving customers in utilities, industry and transport and infrastructure globally. Continuing more than a 125-year history of innovation, ABB today is writing the future of industrial digitalization and driving the Energy and Fourth Industrial Revolutions.
