ABB sami star and its replacement, ABB's ACS880

We’ve got love for you if you were born in the 80s!

An exceptionally well looked after ABB Sami Star (born in the 1980s) has finally given way to its replacement—an ABB ACS880.

Due to the Sami Star becoming obsolete, the customer has decided to replace it to ensure continuity of operation.

But this grand dame of drives just proves the amazing longevity of ABB drives when they’re properly cared for with a programme of routine maintenance.

And after 4 decades of service, this Sami Star will have paid for itself many times over.

The new unit as you can see has a MUCH smaller footprint.
