Capacitive Switching Contactors

ABB offers 3 contactor types for capacitive switching:

  • UA...RA contactors for capacitor switching (UA16...RA to UA110...RA) with preinstalled damping resistors. The insertion of damping resistors protects the contactor and the capacitor from the highest inrush currents.
  • UA contactors for capacitor switching (UA16 to UA110) Maximum permissible peak current = 100 times the nominal rms current of the switched capacitor.
  • A and AF standard contactors Maximum permissible peak current = 30 times the nominal rms current of the switched capacitor.

B Miniature Non-Reversing, Mechanically Interlocked, 3-Pole Contactors

ABB miniature contactors, Type B6 and B7, are designed for commercial and light industrial applications where panel space is at a premium. The mechanical interlock between the two contactors mechanically prevents switch-on of one contactor for as long as the other contactor is still on and vice versa. If reversing contactors are switched over too quickly, this involves the risk of a phase-to-phase short-circuit.

  • Screw clamp terminal connection
  • Flat pin & Solder pin connections
  • Direct PLC operated version
  • High temperature version -25 to +55C (up to 80C on request)
  • Wide range of coil voltages
  • Full voltage non-reversing & reversing contactors & starters

Type T, TF & TA Thermal Overload Relays

Thermal overload relays are electromechanical protection devices for the power circuit. They offer reliable protection for motors in the event of overload or phase failure. 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 bend 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).

  • Economic overload protection
  • Motor applications up to 310 A
  • For single and three phase motors
  • Automatic and manual reset
  • RESET, TEST, and STOP functions
  • Direct contactor mounting up to 200 A
  • Classes 10A, 10, and 20 available

Weidmuller Relays

A Special Feature of the MCZ SERIES is its low profile shape. With a width of only 6 mm, it is particularly well suited for decentralized usage in sub-distribution boards and terminal boxes. You can reduce the installation time by 50 % compared to conventional methods when you use the tension clamp connection and the ZQV 4N pluggable cross-connection on three voltage potential points.

Banner Sensors

The Fill-Level Control Mode provides the switching logic required for fill-level, web tensioning control, and similar applications. In this mode, the output energizes when the target reaches the first sensing window limit, and stays energized until the target moves to the second limit. The output then de-energizes at the second limit anddoes not re-energize until the target moves, again, to the first limit. Teach procedures are identical for
