The controller is very capable and well suited to a wide range of applications. From basic logic to advanced regulatory control or any mix between these two. From only a handful of I/O points to thousands of them, installed locally or remotely. It is communicative too by supporting the IEEEE 802.3, PROFIBUS-DP/DP-V1, FOUNDATION Fieldbus H!, HART and several RS 232C protocols. And it supports calibrations and diagnosis of HART compatible field devices from a central system point.
Control software offers a wide range of industry control functionality for your AC800 family controller. From binary logic to advanced regulatory control. From discrete process signals to high level process objects. An application, no matter how complex, can be downloaded from the engineering tool to the target controller(s) involved in minutes.
The DCS400 compact design brings substantial space saving to machine builders, allowing them to integrate more accessories within the same space.
By fully integrating the field supply, ABB’s engineers have been to patent a design with only three wires in and four wires out. This given reduced cabling.
Fast and Easy Installation
Further installation time and cost can be saved by a simple to follow step bye step installation guide. Bottom plate cable entry giving rapid and easy access to power terminals, easy access I/O connections via bottom cover plate.
The DCS400 is the first digital DC drive, which can be commissioned by those without special drives know-how. But more importantly, the commissioning and start up time is dramatically faster than other DC drives.
A selection of options is available to provide the user with a system meeting the most demanding technical requirements and performance expectations well as many safety standards.
