ABB’s high speed transfer system ensures power quality for critical loads

Enabling continuous supply of energy for industry and utility customers

Zurich, Switzerland – June 6, 2005 - ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, guarantees power quality for industry and utility customers with its newest high speed transfer device type SUE 3000. Integrated into a high speed transfer system with ABB protection and controls as well as circuit breakers, the device safeguards critical loads in the shortest possible time – 30 milliseconds – to keep important processes running.

The device ensures the continued supply of energy to customers through automatic transferring to a stand-by feeder and protects the subsidiary process from expensive downtime. SUE 3000 not only switches almost instantly to an alternative supply in the case of power failure, but also has the ability to anticipate such problems.

“Our customers require a reliable and safe supply of electrical energy,” explains Guido Traversa, head of ABB’s medium voltage products business. “ABB’s High Speed Transfer Systems ensure continued energy supply therefore preventing costly production loss and downtimes.”

Production lines, especially continuous lines in automotive or semiconductor manufacturing, papermaking, logistics and printing plants are particularly vulnerable to unexpected power interruption, which can cause serious damage to key production equipment.

ABB’s transfer device can also anticipate and respond to potential power interruptions and voltage sags by switching to alternative power in less than 1.5 cycles, securing key production equipment.

SUE 3000 can be implemented in any location where a disturbance of the electrical supply would result in a breakdown in production and an increase in costs. Supplying over 1,600 High Speed Transfer Devices globally, ABB is a leader in ensuring power quality for customers.

ABB ( is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 102,000 people.
