ABB PSE Softstarter



ABB PSE Softstarter RangeThe Efficient Range

The PSE softstarter range is the world’s first compact softstarters with Torque Control. This makes the PSE range an excellent choice for pumping application where water hammering normally is a big problem. With its compact design and advanced functionality, the PSE is also a very efficient solution for other common applications such as compressors and fans.

The PSE Softstarter can be selected according to the rated motor power in normal duty applications like pumps, compressors, elevators, escalators, short conveyor belts and bow thrusters.

ABB PSE Softstarter Features

  • Wide rated operational voltage 208 … 600 V AC

  • Motor underload protection to detect pumps running dry
  • Locked rotor protection, detecting jammed pumps
  • Kick start to start jammed pumps or conveyor belts
  • Analog output showing operational current, 4 … 20 mA
  • Optional fieldbus communication using Profibus, Modbus, Devicenet or CANopen
  • Sophisticated algorithm eliminating the DC-component

Torque control

The most important function when stopping pumps is torque control. Since the PSE softstarter is optimized for controlling pumps, this feature is a must.

Built-in by-pass for energy saving

Using by-pass after reaching full voltage will greatly reduce the power loss and thereby save energy. In the PSE softstarter range, the by-pass is built-in on all sizes, which will give the most compact starting solution and reduce the need for wiring during installation.

Coated circuit boards

All circuit boards in the new PSE softstarter have a protective coating to ensure a reliable operation even in tough environments like waste water plants, where corrosive gases and acids may exist.

Motor protection

The PSE softstarter is equipped with built-in electronic overload protection, protecting the motor from overheating. Since no additional overload device is needed, our efficient design saves both space, installation time, and ultimately money.

Analogue output

The analogue output terminals can be connected to an analogue current meter to show the current during operation and thereby eliminating the need for an additional current transformer. The analogue output signal can also be used as an analogue input to a PLC.

Display and keypad

The set-up of the PSE softstarter is done using the four button keypad and the illuminated display, providing a quick and easy set-up. While operating, the display will also provide important status information such as current and voltage.

External keypad

As an option the PSE softstarter can be equipped with an external keypad for easy set-up and monitoring of the unit without opening the enclosure door. The keypad can also be used to copy parameters between different softstarters.
