Since its introduction in 2003, the ABB standard drive, ACS550, has found wide use across industries. As a result, the two millionth unit in this standard drive series rolled off the production line in late April and has been delivered.

The drive has built-in features that allow it to integrate in many processes and applications, according to New Berlin, Wis.-based ABB. The control panel simplifies commissioning, maintenance and accessing drive data, and it offers multiple motor control modes and connectivity to most automation systems. The drive series also has a variant for HVAC applications that has contributed significantly to reaching the milestone.
