Workshops and courses:


Workshops, in red, will be a more hands on experience working with devices.

Courses, in blue, will be class room style learning.

VFD DRIVE SELECTION/TUNING
This workshop will review various applications and best options for variable and constant torque applications and will culminate with the connection of the VFD to Drive Composer for VFD setup and selection of I/O macro that best fits the provided examples.

INTEGRATED SAFETY WITHIN A VFD
VFDs predominantly offer SAFE Torque Off functionality with integration of a third party safety relay, but are there any with integrated safety functionality. Explore the ACS880 VFD with safety functionality built in.

VFD PID PROGRAMMING
Through the use of the analog inputs of a standard VFD, a feedback loop will allow for use of the PID loop built into most ABB VFDs. Attendees will use a ABB Drive with feedback loop to program a single loop PID function.

PLC FUNCTIONALITY IN A VFD
Drive Composer (Free software download) allows for PLC programming functionality within the VFD utilizing on board I/O to control a motor and drive outputs not related to the motion application.

DRIVE COMPOSER PRO (SETUP SOFTWARE) INTRODUCTION
This workshop will review the basics of Drive Composer (Free demo software included with class) and the ability to setup, configure, and program a VFD from a PC tool. The workshop will conclude with a live demo of a VFD operating a motor and utilizing the software to record and troubleshoot applications with the graphing tools within the software.

ENERGY SAVINGS WITH VFDs (AFFINITY LAWS)
Utilization of VFDs for flow control in lieu of proportional valves have the ability to easily save 50% energy or higher with simple motor control. This course will also explore applications that at first appear to meet this criteria and examine why VFD control will not work for all applications.
 

PROPER VFD WIRING AND GROUNDING
This workshop will review the proper wiring, grounding, and bonding requirements of ABB VFDs. Many typical questions will be addressed that relate to I/O commons with power supplies, ground loops, bearing currents, and VFD cable requirements with VFD installations. Attendees are encouraged to submit questions in advance to be covered within the class at esales@ad-techcci.com.

DRIVE COMMUNICATIONS
Experience the simplicity of integrating an ABB VFD to your automation network via EthernetIP, EtherCat, ProfiNet, or Modbus TCP. Standard communication cards available from ABB make this network connection and control simple for first time users. Learn more in this hands-on workshop.
