  • Catalog Description:
    PSRC12-600-70 Softstarter
  • Long Description:
    The softstarter PSRC12-600-70 has a rated maximum operational current of 12 A with an operating voltage span from 208...600 V AC. The rated control voltage is between 100...240 V AC at 50/60 Hz. PSRC features a two-phase control soft start through a voltage ramp. It has built-in bypass for easy installation and energy saving. A RUN signal is available from a relay output in NO (normally open state). The PSRC softstarter range is a true plug-and-play with a fixed setting optimized for scroll compressors. PSRC is often combined with a manual motor starter (MMS) from ABB, so mechanical connection kits are available. Another popular option is Fieldbus communication, which can be enabled by an external adaptor and a Fieldbus plug. The PSRC is fast and easy to install with fixed settings. Designed for scroll compressors results in less stress on the compressor reducing the maintenance cost to a minimum. The PSRC range are suitable for small three-phase motors with nominal currents from 3...105 A and can manage up to 100 starts per hour. Common applications are compressors.
