The A-line contactor range has the same design from 9A to 1050A (AC3 duty) motor loads and is developed for a broad range of DC and other AC applications. This makes it easier to match your needs with fewer components.
This product has benefited of the latest research in electrical design and component layout incorporating the most recent developments in safety aspects, materials and electronics.
This range offers a total system concept. The A-Line together with ABB's fuse, fuse less short circuit protections, and electronic overload relays provide the basis for a new generation of apparatus designed to an ABB-Line system community. Our focus is to provide designers, engineers, installers and end users with the best possible system solutions.
Electronic overload relays are the alternative to thermal overload relays. An electronic overload relay offers reliable and fast protection for motors in the event of overload or phase failure. Starter combinations are setup together with block contactors and mini contactors.
ABB offers one of the widest electronic overload relay assortments on the market.

Example of Application
Being easy to use like a thermal overload relay and compatible with standard motor applications, an electronic overload relay is convincing, above all, due to its broad setting range and low power consumption. The overload relays are connected directly to the contactors.

Thermal overload relays are economic electromechanical protection devices for the main circuit. They offer reliable protection for motors in the event of overload or phase failure. Starter combinations are setup together with block contactors and mini contactors.
The thermal overload relays are three pole relays with bimetal tripping elements. The motor current flows through the bimetal tripping elements and heats them directly and indirectly. In case of an overload (over current), the bimetal elements bent as a result of the heating. This leads to a release of the relay and a change of the contacts switching position (95-96 / 97-98).

ABB offers 2 ranges of Pilot Devices for 22 mm diameter holes. The products can by use of adaptors also be mounted in 30 mm holes.
The Modular Range includes operators, holders, contact blocks, lamp blocks and LED blocks that can be combined to get the required function. Snap on feature reduces installation time and spring loaded tabs ensure that actuators and legend plates are in correct position.
The Compact Range is a very price competitive alternative with all functions built into one single unit. One order code gives the complete function and the all in one concept makes mounting easy and reduce stock keeping.
A wide range of Accessories make the two ranges of Pilot Devices even more flexible.
In addition to the products above ABB also offers Signal Towers and Signal Beacons.
The ABB softstarter portfolio now consists of 4 different ranges making it possible to find a suitable softstarter for almost all pos¬sible applications and motor sizes all the way up to 1800A. The softstarter family consists of the Compact PSR, the Flexible PSS, the Efficient PSE and the Advanced PST(B) range
The range covers all motor applications from 3 A to 1810 A used in a main voltage between 208 V to 690 V AC.
PSR — The compact range
The PSR softstarter is the most compact of all the softstarter ranges, thereby making it possible to design compact starting equipments. The system concept with Manual Motor Starters and the PSR provides a far more compact starting solution than for instance a star delta starter.
Built-in by-pass reduces the energy loss and makes the connection easier and with only three potentiometers, the set-up couldn’t be any easier. Still, the optimized ramping characteristics will ensure a very smooth start and stop for all applications.
PSS — The flexible range
The PSS softstarter allows both in line and inside delta connection making it a very flexible option. Just as on the PSR softstarter, the few settings make the set-up very easy. Connecting an external current transformer makes it possible to activate the current limit function, which will allow you to keep the current at a pre-set level also when starting heavy duty applications. The PSS softstarter is the ideal solution when looking for a robust solid state starting solution where many starts per hour are required.
PSE — The efficient range
The PSE softstarter is the world’s first compact softstarter with both built-in electronic overload for motor protection and torque control for an excellent control of pumps. The compact design with the most important functionality integrated provides a very efficient starting solution.
The illuminated language neutral display and the four button keypad make it easy to take advantage of all the advanced functionality in the softstarter. The display will also provide all the necessary information both during ramping and continuous operation.
PST(B) — The advanced range
The PST(B) softstarter is the most advanced softstarter in the range with almost all imaginable functionality included. All the advanced protections for the motor, the softstarter and the load ensure a trouble free operation. Pre-warnings even allow problems to be detected before the motor needs to be stopped and thereby avoiding unnecessary downtime.
The torque control function has been developed and tested together with well known pump manufacturers to ensure the absolutely best possible stop of pumps without water hammering and pressure surges.
With the full text LCD display in your own language, pre-programmed application settings and event logging, it couldn’t be easier to set-up and operate.
By using the ABB FieldBusPlug, you can decide at any time which bus protocol to use. The fieldbus system will allow you to set-up, control and monitor the softstarter.
