abb acq580 anti-ragging software

From rags to riches with ABB’s inbuilt anti-ragging functionality.

Replacing this stalwart ABB ACS800 drive with a new water industry specific ACQ580 (which has anti-ragging as standard) means that this system can ‘shake off’ any problems with blockages, so avoiding expensive pump removal and cleaning.  

Anti-jam software is a module of ABB's 'Intelligent Pump Control' software and allows a number of cleaning cycles at pump start up. This consists of a series of rapid ramp ups in both forward and reverse, performed without stressing the motor.

The changeover has left the system, and our engineer, Gary Anderson, ‘flushed’ with success.
