Customers have five levels of service to choose from

ABB recently announced the Selective Testing and Repair/Retrofit (STAR) program, which gives its customers a choice when refurbishing low- and medium-voltage lineage circuit breakers. The levels include the Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and STAR Plus packages.

The Bronze package includes the complete disassembly and refurbishment of the operating mechanism and contact assemblies (air magnetic only), and the removal of exterior lubricant and re-lubrication of the truck/frame assembly (including the jackshaft and pushrods), and racking mechanism assembly.

The Silver package includes the complete disassembly and refurbishment of the operating mechanism and contact assemblies (air magnetic only) and the racking mechanism assembly, and the removal of exterior lubricant and re-lubrication of the truck/frame assembly (including the jackshaft and pushrods).

The Gold package includes the complete disassembly and refurbishment of the operating mechanism and contact assemblies (air magnetic only), the racking mechanism assembly, and the truck/frame assembly (including the jackshaft and pushrods).

The Platinum package includes the complete disassembly and refurbishment of the operating mechanism and contact assemblies (air magnetic only), the racking mechanism assembly, and the truck/frame assembly (including the jackshaft and pushrods), as well as the wiring package/control pan (includes control device and auxiliary switch assemblies).

The STAR Plus package can be added to any of the above options for low-voltage breakers to retrofit the breaker’s existing trip system to the customer’s choice of MPSC-2000 or Powershield/SS trip system.
