Soft pipe filling
Increase the lifetime of the piping and pump system by avoiding pressure peaks.

Quick ramps
Extend the lifecycle of a submersible pumps by reducing wear of the mechanical parts using ramp sets to accelerate and decelerate the pumps.

Pump priority
Achieve energy savings with optimal pump alternation by running the higher capacity pumps when the consumption rate is higher.

Multi-pump control
Ensure stable and uninterrupted production with multi-pump controls by optimizing the speed and number of running pumps.

Multi-pump control
Ensure stable and uninterrupted production with multi-pump controls by optimizing the speed and number of running pumps.

Sleep boost
Save energy while extending the life time of the pumps and motors by decreasing start/stop cycles during all hours of the day.

Increase the mean time between repairs and save in service costs by balancing the long-term operation time of all pumps in a parallel pumping system.

Level control
Ensures optimal efficiency when filling or emptying a tank.

Sensor-less flow calculation
Reduce costs by eliminating the need for external components or backup the flow meters to avoid interruptions in the process.

Flow and pressure protection
The drive protects the pumping system from a low and / or high pressure and flow, as well as prevents the pump from running dry.

Pump cleaning
Achieve savings by preventing unplanned downtime. This is made possible as a result of accumulating obstructions being removed from the impeller of the pump.

Comprehensive climate control, effortless operation

ACH580 drives are ideal for the HVAC fans, pumps, compressors, air-handling units and chillers used in hospitals, data centers, shopping centers, tunnel ventilation, factories, office buildings, and more.


• Complete HVAC functionality in a scalable package
• Simple to select, install and use, all the essential features are embedded inside
• Seamless integration to applications and job sites in languages users and systems speak
• Controls induction motors (IM) and energy efficient permanent magnet (PM) and synchronous reluctance motors (SynRM)
• Ultra-low harmonic version also available for more demanding applications

• Premium drive for HVACR applications
• Power range 0.75 to 500 kW (3-phase 380 to 480 V)
• Wall-mounted drives: IP21 as standard, IP55 as option
• Cabinet-built drives: IP21 as standard, IP42 or IP54 as option
• Public networks compliant with standard EMC C2 filter and built-in swinging choke
• User friendly operation with HVAC control panel with Hand-Off-Auto functionality
• BMS communication embedded with BACnet MS/TP, Modbus RTU and N2
• Optional Bluetooth enabled HVAC control panel and Drivetune app allows the drive to be operated from a distance
• Loop controllers for controlling the speed of a fan or pump. Additional loop controllers to control external devices.
• Real time clock and built-in timers for timed operation of the drive and control of external HVAC devices
• Certified Safe torque off (STO) as standard
• The ultra-low harmonic drive variant ensures a pollution-free electric supply and allows the motor to be run at full voltage even in situations where the network voltage is reduced

Effortless system startup
The ACH580 ensures a smooth, coordinated start to your HVAC system. Embedded interlock logic enables the drive to confirm that equipment position, such as dampers, and sensor status are correct before operations begin.

Increased energy savings
Achieve increased energy savings by using the appropriate motor and drive combination. The ACH580 drive works with induction motors, PM motors, or SynRMs, which enable high efficiencies.

Improved safety
Built-in safety functionality, such as override mode, enables your system to ignore all non-essential faults during emergencies to maintain air quality in the fire exit paths.

Reduced costs
The ACH580 reduces costs, for example, by eliminating dependencies on external controllers. The drive can use its internal PID loops to reach a pressure setpoint by checking the active pressure and adjusting the fan speed accordingly.

Optimal system efficiency
Leverage advanced system monitoring, which controls fans and pumps based on feedback from the drive. Use this information to plan maintenance based on the actual needs of the application. For example, with built-in monitoring, the drive notifies you when it’s time to take action when a fan stalls, a belt breaks, a filter clogs, and more.

Overcome challenges of harmonics!
The low harmonic variant drive has excellent harmonic performance ensuring that the current harmonics in undistorted networks are always less than 3% THDi value. As there is no need to install external harmonic filters or multi-pulse transformers there is are significant cost savings.
