Why use an authorised Value Provider (VP) like APDS for your ABB drives service?

Because we know the product inside out, have access to genuine spare parts – usually from stock, and are fully trained and audited by ABB.

We recently received into our workshop a 690Vac 110kW, ACS800 from a power generation plant, that had previously been sent to a non ABB VP for repair.

The client had it sent to us after the previous company were unable to give an accurate fault diagnosis, completion date or an estimated cost below £8000 for the repair.

On completion of the standard static tests; input bridge, IGBT freewheeling diodes, IGBT gates and charging circuit, it was quickly diagnosed that the charging resistor had failed.



Much to the clients satisfaction, we had diagnosed, repaired, cleaned and tested the VSD, ready for dispatch back to site within 24 hours of its arrival, and at a cost to the customer of 90% less than the estimate of the other company.

If we had received the 1st call, we could have carried out this repair on site, with one of our ABB service suitcases, further reducing the unavailability of the drive.

If you have ABB drives, make the smart choice and use one of the ABB Value Providers for your service and repair needs, there will be one nearby wherever in the UK your site is. Visit the ABB website to find your nearest one.
