Control cabinets in greenhouses are rarely ventilated, suffer from limited space and the electrical components are exposed to aggressive substances. ABB´s lamp starting solution for assimilation lighting makes sure that the plants in greenhouses thrive underneath artificial light without disturbances.
The typical lamp starter combination is designed with a MS132-...L protected lamp starter and a lamp contactor AF16-...L or AF26-...L and usually mounted on an adapter snapped on a bus bar system.
The new components guarantee a lower heat generation. The lamp starter generates 10% less heat and the lamp contactor even 20% less than previously. The MS132-...L lamp starter is able to automatically compensate temperatures up to 60°C without influencing the characteristics. Furthermore, e.g. the MS132-20L is short-circuit proof up to 100kA at 400V - a feature that is useful in greenhouses where high short-circuit protection is needed due to the positioning of transformers close to the control panels.
