Winter conditions impose severe demands on snowmaking machines, in the form of high humidity, low temperatures and constant vibration. In addition, the extreme length of cables may cause voltage fluctuations. At these conditions conventional contactors could damage or weld, while ABB AF contactors offer a reliable solution and can operate in extreme environments.

ABB is pushing the boundaries for motor control and power switching. With the electronically controlled coil, ABB‘s AF contactors establishes a new industry benchmark. It offers multiple benefits over conventional alternatives:
| ||Access global support |
AF contactors are compatible with all major national and international standards. Service and support are available worldwide.
| ||Optimize logistics |
Featuring both AC and DC support in the same product, the total number of product variants compared to a conventional range is reduced by up to 90%.
| ||Simplify design |
AF contactor’s width has been reduced by up to 30% thanks to an 80% reduction of the coil’s energy consumption. Altogether, panel can be built smaller.
| ||Secure uptime |
With the wide control voltage range, AF contactor can handle voltage fluctuations. Voltage sags, dips and surges pose no threat.
We cannot control the elements but we promise….. to keep the fun going.
