New ABB motor starting solution introduces tool-free, push-in wiring!

ABB is launABB 2CDC246003F0018_508pxching the industry’s first range of motor starting solutions with a Push-in Spring technology that makes fault-free wiring easier than ever. The innovative tool-free connection concept speeds up wiring work and provides a vibration-resistant connection that makes continuous operation more reliable.

ABB’s intuitive 2-in-1 design combines the advantages of both Push-in and Spring technology in a single terminal.

In Push-in mode, rigid cables or cables with ferrules can be connected tool-free. The operator just pushes them into the cable holes, cutting wiring time by up to 50 percent in comparison to a conventional spring solution and making installation significantly easier. The self-tightening terminals help eliminate wiring errors and mean there is no need for routine re-tightening work.

Spring mode makes it simpler to insert small cross-section cables or cables without ferrules, and also makes unwiring the motor starters significantly faster. The operator simply inserts a screwdriver into the clearly marked holes before inserting the cable. This one-step process makes ABB’s solution easier to use and less prone to damage than conventional spring mechanisms.
