Courtesy: ABBABB’s enclosed PSE soft starter features two-phase torque control and a built-in bypass contactor. It also has sizes, ranges and options that can be selected and made to order via ABB’s LP product configurator. A softstarter is used for asynchronous electrical motors, especially in high-speed applications. It regulates motor voltage to prevent surges and drops in power that could cause stress and increase wear on the engine, as well as consume excess power from the network. The enclosed PSE softstarter has a range of five to 300 hp with maximum Underwriters Laboratories (UL) ratings to 65 kilo ampere interrupting capacity (KAIC). The enclosed PSE has built-in electronic overload for motor protection and is designed to balance size and functionality, making it particularly ideal for smaller pump applications like water and wastewater treatment, well water operations, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), agricultural irrigation and various manufacturing and facility operations.
