How to wire an ABB ACS150 drive

The drive connection should be done by an experienced person so that the drive won’t be damaged and before doing the connection the drive and wires must be disconnected from the power if it is connected. The inputs and the motor connection can be seen in the drive.

The above image shows the ABB drive connection, in it, we can see the input section in which we can connect the three-phase power. the U1, V1, and W1 are for the input connection we can connect the three-phase power in this section. On the right side, we can see the U2, V2, and W2 which is used to do the motor connection. In the above image, if we look at the input power section, we can see the I/O strip and we can see a switch that can be used to select the voltage and milliamp signal. So we can set to U if we are going to use a potentiometer and it would need a voltage signal. After that, the potentiometer connection can be done and it is shown in the below image.

After that, we can connect the pushbuttons and by doing this we would only need to connect the wire to one connection. After that we can wire the digital input so that the switches can be maintained, we can use different color conductors so that we could know which switch is wired to a particular input.

After that connect the COM and GND terminal, then we can connect a wire to the 24 V terminal and this would provide power to the connection by sourcing. After that, we can check the connections by powering the drive. Then according to the digital input connection and by the parameters in the drive, we can run the motor. We can check the starting and stopping of the motor and then the forward and reverse checking of the motor can be done. We can also check the constant speed in which the motor can run and it is only possible by setting the drive parameters. Then we can also do the acceleration and deceleration test of the motor. On the right side of the image, we can see three IOS and they are used for relay outputs, a pilot light can be used to indicate the fault in this.
