The PSTX combines many years of research and product development with extensive knowledge of application-specific requirements and needs. The PSTX is ABB’s latest advancement in motor control and protection and adds new functionality with increased reliability to any motor starting application.
With ABB’s softstarters current peaks are eliminated and the starting current is reduced significantly. The load and voltage protections keep your motor protected from load and network irregularities. More features that will improve the overall reliability of the motor are three types of current limit and earth fault protection, amongst others.
The built-in bypass will reduce both energy consumption and heat generation while running motors at full speed. It saves both time spent on installation, space inside the panels, and it reduces the cost of extra cooling equipment. ABB’s softstarters also come with HMI’s that are easy to learn, improving the efficiency of the softstarters once they are in use.
ABB’s softstarters will reduce mechanical wear and tear and increase the productivity of your applications. With torque control damage to pump systems from problems like water hammering can be completely avoided. The continuous operation of applications can also be increased by features like jog with slow speed, pump cleaning and limp mode, which allows your application to do more.
