Leading power and automation technology group, ABB introduces the complete AF contactor range AF09 through AF2650. 

The AF contactor range can handle everything from small motor starting solutions to big power switching applications. Featuring AF technology as standard, the latest range of ABB contactors establishes a new industry benchmark with the electronically controlled coil allowing for a much wider operating voltage and AC/DC support offering multiple benefits over conventional alternatives. 

ABB’s extensive motor protection products include thermal and electronic overload relays, manual motor starters and more. 

Compatible with all major national and international standards, ABB’s contactor and motor protection range is available worldwide via a global distribution network. One contactor coil now handles 100 V – 250 V, AC/DC for use in Europe or Asia as well as North America. 

By reducing contactor coil energy consumption up to 80 percent, panels can be built smaller and transformers more compact. All the features of the AF technology, along with access to drawings and coordination tables online simplify any design and assembly process. 

With its contactor and motor protection range, ABB has managed to reduce the number of contactor coils down to just four. The total number of product variants has been reduced by up to 90 percent, simplifying logistics and cutting down administration costs. 

By preventing stoppages caused by voltage fluctuations, the AF contactor ensures distinct operation in unstable networks and signifies a major advance in motor control and power switching, securing uptime for the facility.
