ABB sets a new standard in motor control and power switching

2013-10-24 - Control is a sense of motion, a sense of progress. Gaining control is gaining possibilities. By having control we can outperform our past. The time is now. Time to Connect to Control.
ABB introduces the complete AF contactor range AF09 through AF2650. From small motor starting solutions to big power switching applications, the AF contactor handles it. With over 100 years of experience in motor control and power switching ABB knows how to provide products that works everywhere.

Featuring AF technology as standard, the latest range of ABB contactors establishes a new industry benchmark. The electronically controlled coil allows for a much wider operating voltage and AC/DC support offering multiple benefits over conventional alternatives, and together with ABB’s wide product offering – an optimal configuration every time.

The AF Contactor is part of the market’s widest product offerings. ABB’s extensive motor protection assortment includes thermal and electronic overload relays, manual motor starters and more which means ABB not only provides products of the highest quality but also the full solutions.

Access global support

The contactor and motor protection range from ABB is compatible with all major national and international standards and is available worldwide via a global distribution network. One contactor coil now handles 100 V – 250 V, AC/DC for use in Europe or Asia as well as North America.

Simplify design

By reducing contactor coil energy consumption by up to 80 percent, panels can be built smaller and transformers more compact. All the features of the AF technology, along with access to drawings and coordination tables online simplify your design and assembly process.

Optimise logistics

With its contactor and motor protection range, ABB has managed to reduce the number of contactor coils down to just four. The total number of product variants has been reduced by up to 90 percent. This simplifies logistics and cuts administration costs.

Secure uptime
Time to prevent stoppages caused by voltage fluctuations. The AF contactor ensures distinct operation in unstable networks and signifies a major advance in motor control and power switching. Voltage sags, dips and surges pose no threat. The AF contactor secures your uptime.
