Reduce Space and Cut Wiring Costs with ABB


ABB's new switch offering includes switch-disconnectors designed for photovoltaic applications and are the first two-pole disconnect switches in the industry to achieve 1000 VDC rating per UL 98B. The switch-disconnectors are typically used to isolate individual strings or arrays of solar panels and battery banks. They can also be used as the main switch for the whole photovoltaic system. 

The new switches are compact in size, have high DC voltage ratings and unique safety features. The featured arc suppression technology delivers optimal performance with a new measure of simplicity and safety, while occupying 50 percent less space and providing substantial energy savings. Designed for use in combiner-boxes for disconnecting individual arrays, it's modular design allows a rated operational voltage that can be scaled according to your needs, up to 1000 V.

-Reliable PV systems at a wide voltage range
-Simple and fast installation
-Suitable for warm locations
-Maximum energy efficiency of PV systems
-Breaking power optimized across the entire current range
-Safe and reliable operation





New Timers From ABB Offer Easy Install and Removal


For many years, ABB's CT range of electronic timers has been used in applications worldwide and 
has proven its excellent functionality in daily use even under the toughest conditions. The CT-S Timers are the latest addition to the line with available Double Cage Clamp or Push-in Spring Clamp (Easy Connect Technology). These new versions directly replace and improve upon the existing ranges and provide timing functions for all applications.
The CT-D range with MDRC design (modular DIN rail components)
in an housing with a width of only 17.5 mm fits into
all domestic installation and distribution panels.

The CT-E range offers an excellent price/performance ratio
and is an ideal solution for serial applications.

The highly sophisticated CT-S range in ABB's new S-line
housing offers two different types of connection terminals
and is ideally suited for universal use. 



Increased Safety with the OVR DIN Rail Series

The recent release of the OVR DIN rail surge protection devices, approved by UL 1449 3rd Edition and Type 4 recognized components, usable in Type 2 applications, are constructed with the same high quality as the ABB 2nd Edition devices but with improved safety.
The new OVR DIN rail series includes devices ranging from 1-pole to 3-pole+neutral, capable of protecting AC networks up to 600V. Maximum discharge current ratings of 15 and 40kA are also available. Remote monitoring is available with the "TS" option and all devices have replaceable cartridges for ease of maintenance.
