How does the disconnector help in energy efficiency?

Worawut Sae-Kok, Global Product Marketing Manager Disconnectors

ABB's answer

Disconnector is a mechanical switching device and carryiny current when connecting in the networks; hence it can generate loss as per ohmic law, depending on its contact resistance parameter. Disconnector can contribute for energy efficiency if the loss can be minimized. ABB disconnectors have the contacts made of aluminium or copper with the construction which can contribute to minimize the contact resistances thus reducing the energy loss for the circuit.
