Established in 1991, Halcyon Drives are providers of AC inverters, AC induction motors, control panels/systems and associated electrical components for manufacturing companies and OEMs. We have a reputation for quality and first class service.  As one of the leading European ABB distributors, we provide for a range of “blue chip” companies as well as small to medium sized businesses.

Over the years, our range of services has widened, to include ABB energy audits and hire drives, and we have gained much expertise in the areas of industrial machines and power transmission geared motor products. These assets allow us to provide a complete turnkey control and drive system, which means that our customers only need to deal with one contractor, which can be a cost-effective solution.

ABB Drives

For AC variable speed inverter drives, ABB are the number one supplier, and their product range is wider than any other. ABB Drives are synonymous with reliability, flexibility, simplicity and ingenuity.

Halcyon Drives are a leading ABB distributor, stocking ACS50, ACS55, ACS150, ACS350, ACS550, ACH550 and ACS800 models ranging from 0.18kW to 250kW. We can offer customers completely packaged inverter driver solutions, experienced as we are in application design, programming, repairing and commissioning of control systems.

In addition, we are well-versed in the majority of other inverter drives, servo drive applications, DC drive systems and power transmission requirements.

ABB Motors

To cater for every customer's needs, we have three different ranges of ABB softstarters.

The PSR is the most compact of the three, allowing the design of compact starting equipments. Its built-in by-pass makes connection easier and reduces the energy loss, and the set-up is very easy due to there only being three potentiometers.

For efficiency, we have the PSE, which has built-in electronic overload and torque control for motor protection and excellent pump control – a first for compact softstarters.

The most advanced is the PST(B), with advanced motor, softstarter and load protections for trouble free operation and pre-warnings to telegraph problems early and avoid excessive downtime.

Control Systems

We can build control systems for a variety of industrial process control and automation projects, with control panels ranging from simple operator consoles to complex PLC controlled networked systems.

We select all of our components from international main source suppliers with stringent design and manufacture accreditations, and our automation solutions meet the design, control and safety criteria of European harmonised standards and technical specifications. We use AutoCAD software to produce all schematics.

Our expertise in power transmission allows us to provide a complete solution, from the control panel to the driven machine shaft.

Rockwell Guardmaster

Rockwell Automation are a leading specialist in industrial automation, and we can supply products from their wide range of failsafe equipment. This includes presence sensing devices, safety interlock switches, hazardous and pneumatic switches, safety relays and safety controllers.

The Rockwell Guardmaster™ range includes safety switching devices and sensors with a focus on interlocking and control devices that can provide safe working conditions across a range of industries. These components provide essential reliability and security, and while they are manufactured in the UK, customers worldwide can benefit from Rockwell Automation's safety expertise.
