To lower energy consumption and keep the environment clean, it is more and more crucial to make Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems more efficient every day.
ABB has a wide range of full-speed Motor Starting and Protection solutions for all applications in HVAC but, among other parts of the system and from an electrical point of view, chillers are the most critical components and often the largest individual loads.
With ABB and the digital capabilities of its devices, chiller systems can easily manage compressors and fans in an efficient and reliable way, with the goal of granting continuous operations, energy efficiency, space saving and ease of installation.
We can provide preconfigured bundles of products for every part of the HVAC chiller system making the customer’s life easier by dealing with a single supplier and accessing complete motor starting and protection solutions in compliance with application requirements and Standards.
Our wide range of full-speed Motor Starting and Protection solutions provide chiller systems with:
> Continuous operation
Thanks to our reliable connections and coordinated products, you will have 10% less chances of failure of the chiller systems if compared to alternative solutions.
> Energy efficiency
Thanks to our devices, that can be operated with a lower power supply, and to contactors’ AF technology, that ensure less heat dissipation and a reduction in temperature rise, we help our customers achieve energy efficiency by reducing up to 80% energy consumption in the control circuit system.
> Space saving
Thanks to our solutions with the most compact design, our customers can save up to 35% of the space in the control panel of their chiller systems.
> Ease of installation
Thanks to easy-to-use accessories and connection sets, we help you to reduce installation time by 50%. This will help to save also on labor costs and cut the total cost of the installation.
ABB offers a comprehensive selection of contactors for simple and extreme application as well as products with specific purposes. You can choose terminals between screw, push-in spring, and ring tongue through our ranges. So, whatever your need of a contactor might be, ABB will have a variant meeting just that.
ABB’s broad range of protection devices for equipment and installation protect against short circuit, overload, phase loss and unbalance protections. Manual motor starters save costs, space, and ensure a quick reaction under short-circuit condition by switching the motor off within milliseconds in almost every situation including hazardous areas.
Moulded Case Circuit Breakers (MCCBs) are designed to maximize ease of use, integration and connectivity while reliably delivering safety and quality. With seven different sizes and protection features of up to 1600A there’s a solution for every purpose.
ABB's softstarters increase a motor's lifetime by protecting it from electrical stresses. They do so by letting you optimize starting currents that with conventional starting methods put lots of stress on the motor. With everything that you need in one unit, from bypass contactor to overload protection, a single Softstarter makes for a compact and complete starting solution.
ABB has the industry’s most comprehensive range of electronic timers, measuring and monitoring relays, interface relays and power supplies – helping customers source all their critical components from a single global supplier. Increase the reliability of process equipment with control devices that provide intelligent signals and smart adjustments that help you achieve maximum system availability.
Cylon® controllers are designed for a wide range of energy management applications for intelligent control of HVAC equipment such as Central Plant, Boilers, Chillers, Cooling Towers, Pump Systems, Air Handling Units, Rooftop Units, Electrical systems such as lighting control, variable frequency drives and metering.
