ABB Drive Integrator for Variable Speed Drive Systems


Since 1982 Galco Industrial electronics has been providing AC and DC Variable Speed Drive solutions for a broad base of Manufacturing Applications. Our experience with both AC and DC Drive Systems enables us to meet the many challenges and demands of Manufacturing Engineers and facility managers. Galco provides Professional service and outstanding customer satisfaction that equals the performance and reliability of ABB Drive products. ABB Drive products continue to be key to Galco's continued success. Galco Engineering has a solid track record of working with End Users, OEM's and Integrators on supplying Stand Alone and Coordinated Drive Systems.

As a Drive system Integrator for ABB, Galco Engineering receives special training on the three major low voltage products from the ABB Drives Group. These three ABB lines are DC Line Regenerative, AC Line Regenerative, and Drive Modules. The Drive Modules allow Galco Engineering to custom configure drive solutions by integrating a wide power range of ISU (Input supply Unit) and INV (Inverter Modules). These modules are typically applied in Common Bussed Multi Drive Applications where energy can be recirculated within the drive system thus significantly lowering the overall cost implementation and utilization of the Variable Speed Drive system.

ABB's Drive Division brings together a world leading and recognized brand - ABB - the number one supplier for variable speed drives and a product range that is simply the widest available from any manufacturer.

ABB drives are a standard for users the world over that signifies reliability, simplicity, flexibility and ingenuity, throughout the lifecycle of a drive.

ABB offers a wide range of drives that improve the way manufacturer's efficiently use energy and optimize process control.

ABB's offering includes low voltage AC and DC drives and medium voltage AC drives. They are used across all industries and applications. ABB drives offer application specific functionality, control for different types of motors as well as flexible connectivity to automation systems.

ABB drives are proven and provide reliable solutions backed by global production and life cycle services.

The ABB Group ( of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 130,000 people.

Variable Speed Stand-Alone & Coordinated Drive Systems

Galco Engineered Systems success is based on years of Variable Speed Drive application experience throughout a range of Industries including; waste water treatment, primary and secondary steel processing, metal removal, metal forming, and the Plastics Industry.
