ACS310 drives for a wide range of variable torque applications
ABB general purpose drive, ACS310 is easy to select and easy to use. It is enough for most basic applications with no high overload demands. ACS310 is suitable for wide range of variable torque applications and simple machines. The drive’s dedicated pump and fan features lower operating costs, boost energy efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions. Included amongs these features are built-in PID controllers and PFC (pump and fan control) that varies the drive’s
performance in response to changes in pressure, flow or other external data. Among the pre-programmed protection functions is pump cleaning. This prevents pump and pipe clogging by initiating a sequence of forward and reverse runs of the pump to clean the impeller.
Within pumping applications, energy savings can be
up to 50 percent, compared to direct-on-line motor-driven systems that use mechanical flow control methods. The ABB general purpose drives provide built-in features for efficient energy management. Energy savings can be easily monitored using the built-in counters that display energy savings in kilowatt hours and saved carbon dioxide emissions. The savings can also be displayed in local currencies.
The compact design and uniform dimensions make cabinet mounting of the drive straightforward, thereby providing
a fast and space saving installation. The ACS310 drives have an embedded Modbus interface for system monitoring that saves the cost of external fieldbus devices and enables to integrate the drives easily with PLC. When combined with preprogrammed application macros, an intuitive user interface and several assistant screens, installation time is further reduced while speeding up parameter setting and drive commissioning.
The ACS310 drives meet the needs of OEMs, logistical and technical distributors as well as the requirements of end users with pumping and ventilation applications. The drives are supported by one of the most extensive global sales and service networks with presence in over 100 countries.

Worldwide availability and service
ACS310 drives are simple and easy with all essentials included for applications with no high overload demand. Compact design with flexible mounting options saves space and installation time. Short menus and preprogrammed macros makes commissioning fast and easy. The drives powerful set of pump and fan features reduce
mechanical stress and thus maintenance costs. Within pumping applications, energy savings of up to 50% can be achieved compared to direct-on-line motor-driven systems that use mechanical flow control methods. Wherever your
machine is located, the local ABB will be there to support you and your clients.
Multipump and -fan control One drive controls several pumps or fans and eliminates the need for an external programmable logic controller. One pump is drive controlled and auxiliary pumps are on/off controlled. This reduces the motor stress and increase lifetime when auxiliary motors are driven according to the needed pump/fan capacity. Interlock function enables one motor to be disengaged from the mains supply while others continue operating in parallel.
Quick and easy commissioning
Predefined I/O configurations
for application macros and built-in assistants speed up commissioning of the drive, allowing you to concentrate on your business.
Robust design and quality
ACS310 has coated control boards to increase robustness. Automatic fault reset to ensure uninterrupted operation. And
protection against unstable supply networks.
Intelligent drive control method improving the energy efficiency and system operation, especially while operating on partial centrifugal loads.
Compact and space saving design Compact size, with power range from 0.37 to 22 kW and flexible mounting possibilities
ensure optimized installation in a wide range of applications, resulting in space and cost savings.
Built-in statistical tool that saves process data, such as current and torque values, which can be used to analyze and optimise the process. It can also be used for following system behaviour before and after any
Application macros are preprogrammed parameter sets. While starting up the drive, the user typically selects one of the macros that is best suited for the application. The diagram below gives an overview of ACS310 control connections and shows the default I/O connections for the ABB standard macro.

In addition to the standard macros, the user can create three user macros. The user macro allows the user to save the parameter settings for later use. The diagram below gives an overview of ACS310 control connections. Please refer to the ACS310 user’s manual for more detailed information
One of the ACS310’s integrated pump and fan features is soft pump and fan control (SPFC), which is used for pump and fan alternation applications where lower pressure peaks are desirable when a new auxiliary motor is connected on-line.The following example explains how ACS310 can operate up to 4 to 5 pumps or fans in parallel based on the capacity demand. In this example, we use three parallel pumps to maintain the water pressure in the pipelines.
The drive controls the motor of pump 1, varying the motor speed to control the pump capacity. This motor is the
speed regulated motor. When the demand exceeds that of the first motor’s, the drive automaticly starts an auxiliary pump. The speed of the first pump is adjusted so that the actual
value follows the process reference.
Before starting the configuration, ensure that the drive has been installed properly and that the electrical connections are complete. Connection example can be found from ACS310
The correct motor parameters are set within parameter group
- Then select SPFC control macro using parameter 9902. This software macro updates the defined list of parameter values to their default values.
Pump and fan control parameters
Parameters can be found in parameter group 81. First change Short menu to to Long from parameter 1611 in group 16. This shows the full parameter group list including group 81.
Control program example
Frequency limits to start and stop auxiliary motors Parameter 8109 START FREQ 1 is set to 50 Hz, which is also the default value. Since we have in this example also another auxiliary motor, parameter 8110 START FREQ 2
is set to 50 Hz for the second auxiliary motor.
To stop an axiliary motor we set parameters 8112 LOW FREQ 1 and 8113 LOW FREQ 2 to 25 Hz.
