ABB PSR Softstart – 24 Volt AC/DC One Unit

ABB2.jpg

The PSR softstarter is the most compact of all the softstarter ranges, thereby making it possible to design compact starting solutions. The system concept with Manual Motor Starters and the PSR provides a far more compact starting solution than conventional star delta starter configurations.

Built-in by-pass reduces the energy loss and makes the connection easier and with only three potentiometers, the set-up couldn’t be simpler. The optimized ramping characteristics will ensure a very smooth start and stop for all applications.

ABB SR2 Enclosures

ABB2.jpg

The range of SR2 enclosures is a complete offer of monobloc enclosures for constructing small and medium-sized electric automation, switching and control switchboards. The SR2 enclosures come from the experience ABB has gained over the years in building IP65 metalstructures (in accordance with the CEI EN 60529 Standard), together with the innovative new production process used for construction and patented by ABB.

The typical use of SR2 Enclosures is to make switchgear and controlgear switchboards for a very wide variety of industrial machines: from large machinery with automated production lines or parts of these, down to the typical installations of on-board machine switchboards, boilers, heating plants and so on.

SR2 enclosures conform to the EN 62208 Standard “Empty enclosures for low voltage protection switchgear and controlgear assemblies” and allow realization of electrical equipment conforming to the prescriptions of the CEI EN 60204-1 Standard “Safety of machinery. Electrical equipment of machines” and of the EN 60439-1 Standard and the new EN61439-1-2 Standard “Low voltage protection switchgear and controlgear for assemblies”. The degree of protection, in accordance with the CEI EN 60529 Standard “Degrees of protection of enclosures (IP Code)”, is IP65. The SR2 enclosures have also passed the control required to obtain the UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and CSA (Canadian Standards Association) Type 12 marks.

The SR2 enclosures also allow secondary distribution switchboards to be made, thanks to the possibility, in the 400, 600 and 800 mm widths, of installing the whole range of apparatus and modular circuit-breakers on DIN rails combined with special pre-drilled and hinged modular front panels, thereby allowing construction of AS/ANS type electrical switchgear conforming to the CEI EN 60439-1 Standard and the new EN 61439-1-2 Standard. A single line of metalwork structures therefore allows construction of automation and secondary and end distribution electrical switchboards thanks to the availability of a series of accessories (modular panels, DIN rails) and to the possibility of stacking the enclosures.

The SR2 enclosures have been designed to fulfil all the typical needs of the builder or installer of switchgear
in the best way possible and the user is presented with a unique ensemble of functional characteristics:

*  Wide dimensional range
*  Certified IP65 degree of protection
*  Internal galvanised sheet mounting plate with 20/10 thickness (made  to allow threaded holes to be made easily), adjustable in depth by using a special accessory.
*  Fairlead plate screwed on (at top and bottom) made of 15/10 thick galvanised sheet, with a sealing gasket applied inside.
*  Complete reversibility of the enclosure, so the door can open either on the right or on the left-hand side.
*  Possibility of installing all the apparatus and modular circuit-breakers on a DIN rail combined with a hinged modular panel.

New Additions to ABB’s Phase Monitors (CM series) ABB Now Offers a Complete Range of Three-Phase Monitors

ABB2.jpg

Only reliable, continuous monitoring of the three-phase supply can ensure  trouble-free and efficient operation of motors, machines and equipment. ABB now offers a comprehensive range of 22.5 mm, within the CM series, to protect sensitive equipment from adverse three-phase voltages. The product range extends from the full protection
multifunction three-phase monitor, CM-MPS, to single-function devices for monitoring single parameters.

Phase monitors.jpg

The CM-MPS is a multifunction monitoring relay. It monitors all phase parameters including: phase sequence, phase failure, over- and undervoltage and phase unbalance. It is available with or without monitoring of the neutral conductor. Seven devices with a graded scope of functions complete the CM product range. The new devices for three-phase voltage monitoring, CM-PVS and CM-PSS along with the CM-PAS for monitoring phase unbalance, offer functions adapted to the relevant requirements and facilitate the accurate monitoring of three-phase mains.

The characteristics of the three-phase monitors are:
• Phase failure monitoring
• Phase sequence detection*
• Over- and undervoltage monitoring (fixed or adjustable)*
• Adjustable phase unbalance threshold*
• Adjustable delay time, and selectable ON-delay or OFF-delay function*
• Dual-frequency,  50/60 Hz operation
• Powered by the measuring circuit 
• 1 n/o, 1 or 2 c/o  contacts
• LED for status indication
• Wide operating voltage range

*Depends on device type

Energy with a Sense of Proportion ABB Offers New SMPS

ABB2.jpg

ABB has significantly enlarged its range of switch-mode power supply devices (SMPS). Supplementing the existing range of tried and tested SMPS products of the CP series for nominal currents of 0.3A up to 20A, there are now new CP-S and CP-C series for the range between 5 to 20A available.

The SMPS devices of the CP-C series are characterized by their modular, plug-in functional modules that extend the functionality of the devices tailored to the requirements of the customer. The CP-C MM signal module for example monitors the input and output voltage, and has a remote-OFF function. More plug in modules are under preparation.

CP-C and CP-S.jpg

There are also manifold applications for the CP-S devices that – while offering the same modern and powerful technology – dispense with some of the extra features of the CP-C series.

All power supply units of the CP, CP-S and CP-C series are primary SMPS: they guarantee the best possible efficiency (>88%), minimized losses, environmental compatibility and cost efficiency.

Characteristics:
CP-S range
• Selectable input voltage 85-132VAC/184-264VAC, 220-350 V DC
• Fixed output voltage

CP-C range
• Autorange input 85-264VAC, 100-350VDC
• Adjustable output voltage 22-28VDC
• PFC (power factor correction)

The new CP-S and CP-C range power supplies feature power reserve of up to 50%. The 5A and 10A models have pluggable, double connection terminals, and LED indication “OUTPUT OK”. All of them are CE marked, the C-Tick mark and the cULus (508) and UL60950 approvals are under preparation.
