APDS’ Alan Jones Takes Part in ABB’s Partner Expert Training Days



ABB regularly organises training days at its Headquarters in Helsinki, Finland. They invite partners from around the world who they recognise as experts in the application of ABB drives and motors.

Alan Jones, Director at APDS, has just returned from the latest ABB Partner Expert Training day, and explains why these events are so important.

“The ABB training days are useful for a number of reasons. Firstly we get to meet our industry peers to discuss projects and ideas and transfer knowledge by sharing our experiences. Secondly we are privileged to see first-hand ABB’s products in production. On this trip it was very exciting seeing the ACS580 and ACS880 in production. We were also shown how easy it is to use the ACS580 adaptive programming features and in fact we were all able to programme the drive after just 2 minutes of tuition.”

The trip was also used by ABB to introduce their partners to the ACH580 range which is due to be released very shortly soon to compliment the rest of the ABB products.
