There are a number of ways to help reduce the damage and danger of arc-flash events. There’s also a way simply to help prevent them. Learn more about three common methods of arc-flash mitigation.
Solar-PV energy providers no longer need complex solutions to match 800/1000 VAC array outputs to lower-voltage storage systems. Panel builders can support their shift to much simpler, more efficient, more reliable 800/1000 VAC storage.
Selecting devices matched to your motor to help ensure safe, reliable operation has never been easier. The just released ABB Motor Starting and Protection Selector mines relevant catalogs and resources to provide a bill of materials for the circuit.
When selecting panel components, OEMs can boost their competitive position by looking beyond price at three other factors that can elevate the quality, reliability, functionality, and price-competitiveness of your panels.
John BelsheProduct Marketing ManagerABB Electrification Products Division Your large (>400 HP) motors require special protection to ensure reliable operation and a long life. Learn how the features of today’s smarter motor-protecting circuit breakers are up to the task.
John Belshe & Kevin JordanProduct Marketing ManagersABB Electrification Products Division More and more panels are incorporating smarter breakers with sensors that can provide alerts and take action when they detect an issue. Panel builders can choose from 3 levels of device monitoring, taking a good/better/best approach to providing their customers with these benefits.
William LindstromGlobal Product ManagerABB Electrification Products Division Try to imagine doing business today without your cell phone. You probably can’t. In the same way, panel builders using communication-enabled devices like breakers and automatic transfer switches can’t imagine a panel without them.
Allen AustinMarket Development Manager – Renewable Energy & Power GenerationABB Electrification Business Both residential and commercial customers are increasingly turning to renewable energy sources that’s creating huge demand for energy storage systems. Panel shops should be looking at how they can be part of this growth.
If you appreciate the wisdom of combining the fax, scan, and copy functions into a single device, the benefits of combining the function of relays and meters in your breakers should be crystal clear. Read more about the benefits of smarter breakers and why you should throw away your relays.
