Electronic Compact Starters

ABB’s electronic compact starters are innovative hybrid starters with direct-on-line, reversed starting, motor overload protection and emergency stop functions all fully integrated. The devices combine the benefits of solid-state electronics and a mechanical relay to deliver high performance over an exceptionally long lifetime. With a narrow width of just 22.5 mm, the HF range is the technology of choice for applications that need space savings.
