ABB ACS1000 family AC Drives Fuseless design for reliable, non-aging, maintenance-free circuit protection.
DTC control platform for exceptionally high torque and speed performance.
Retrofit-ready for existing motors and suitable for most medium voltage applications including pumps, fans, compressors, extruders, conveyors. Output sine filter for pure sinusoidal voltage and current output: standard motors, no motor derating, no voltage stress and no common mode voltages on the motor insulation. IGCT power semiconductor for highest reliability
Inverter type    
  Three-level Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) with fast-switching power semiconductors – Integrated Gate Commutated Thyristors (IGCTs),
without parallel or series connected devices
  Induction motors;
