Our Products

ACS 580 General Purpose Drive

A new generation, all-compatible, wall-mounted and cabinet-built drive simplifies your processes and motor control with effortless efficiency. Allowing you to control a wide range of applications in different industries, with straightforward set up or commissioning. Effortless energy efficiency.

ACS 880 Industrial Drive

The ACS880 series drives are part of ABB’s all-compatible drives portfolio.

Gem80 OPC Server

This is a software driver which has been designed to provide connectivity between any Gem80 PLC (fitted with a GemLAN-T ethernet processor) and Microsoft Windows based packages which support OPC.

High Speed Data Logger

We are able to supply a high speed data logger software package for monitoring and logging large quantities of process data via ethernet.

Gem80 Programming Lead

The Gem80 programming lead comprises a converter unit and a separate connector to allow a standard RS232 PC port to connect to a Gem80 PLC programming port, when used with a suitable Gem80 programming package (not supplied with this product).

Control Panel Dollies

Heavy duty hydraulic dollies for the safe and easy transportation of control panels.

PLC Batteries

We can supply batteries for most types of PLC including Gem80 batteries and Alspa batteries.

ACS 800 Industrial Drive

ABB industrial drives are highly flexible ac drives that can be customised to meet the precise needs of industrial applications.

ACS 550 Standard Drives

ABB standard drives are simple to buy, install, configure and use. Sensorless vector control for improved motor control performance.

ACS 355 General Machinery Drives

ABB general machinery drives are designed for the machine building sector. Fast installation, setup and commissioning. Sensorless vector control.

ACS 310 Standard Drives For Fans and Pumps

The ABB standard drives family is extended with a new series of dedicated drives designed for squared-torque applications such as pumps, booster pumps and centrifugal fans. Scalar control (quadratic/squared torque only).

ACS 150 Component Drives

Take smooth performance to the next level with the wide power range and functionality of ACS150. Available in both single and three phase supplies. Many functions are standard, such as PID control, a built-in brake chopper and EMC filter. An optional FlashDrop drive configuration tool makes configuring unpowered drives quick and easy.
