PSTX - The Advanced Range

The PSTX combines many years of research and product development with extensive knowledge of application specific requirements and needs. The PSTX is our latest advancement in motor control and protection and adds new functionality with increased reliability to any motor starting application.

The PSTX helps you use your process to its fullest potential. Many features like torque control, jog with slow speed and pump cleaning were designed to deal with specific problems that may occur when using conventional starting methods. The PSTX helps both your motor and application do more. The PSTX offers complete motor protection in only one unit and is able to handle both load and network irregularities. PT-100, earth fault protection and over/under voltage protection along with many other functions keep your motor running even through the roughest of networks.

FBP FieldBusPlug

ABB has developed a technology which allows control equipment to be connected to any fieldbus system by using the appropriate "smart" connecting cable. The motor controls are fitted with a non-specific bus connector into which one end of the cable is plugged. The other end of the cable has a connector to the chosen bus system. The cable incorporates the "intelligence" needed to translate the signals for the appropriate protocol. ABB says the FieldBusPlug will simplify project planning, commissioning and maintenance, and provide greater flexibility. Ready-made DeviceNet, MODBUS-RTU & CANopen fieldbus interface with various cable lengths.

  • DeviceNet FieldBusPlug
  • MODBUS-RTU FieldBusPlug
  • CANopen FieldBusPlug

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.

  • Rated operational voltage 208-690 V AC
  • Rated control supply voltage 110-120 V AC or 220-240 V AC
