ABB launches Xuanzhi switch and socket – a new product range of electrical wiring accessories in China
Wednesday, Jun 28, 2017
ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, today announced Xuanzhi switch and socket - a new series of frame-free electrical wiring accessories at the ABB Customer World 2017



An innovative switch and socket series was developed by ABB’s German designers, inspired by the classical dome and base of Ancient Greek Temples, in collaboration with the China team, for the medium/high-end commercial and residential markets. Xuanzhi, with extra-large buttons and frame-free designs, deliver un-constrained fashion and elegance. Ultrahigh polishing process, coupled with high/low temperature controller technology and imported polymer PC material, ensure mild and gentle look and less scratch susceptibility of the products.

As we evolve into the internet and social media era, individuals are more willing to exhibit their own styles and personalities. Perfectly combining legacy with innovation, the new frame-free switch and socket provide the consumers with availability to express themselves. The extra-large button, 4-degree swing angle, and special inner muting design deliver innovative touch-feel-look. They also inherit ABB’s legacy user-friendly design, including five dislocated plug-holes, and maximum spacing to reduce intervention in usage. The switch contacts made from environment-friendly RoHS compliant rare earth alloy materials without containing heavy metals can withstand higher impulse current. The mounting panel with a cellular structure delivers higher strength and is less prone to deformation.

Wang Zhongdan, ABB Hub business unit Building Products manager for Asia Pacific, Electrification Products division, said, “Since 2000 ABB has introduced a compelling range of high-quality wiring accessories into the Chinese market and realized local design, R&D and production of these products in 2004, to deliver more choices to industrial and individual customers in China. The Xuanzhi series co-developed by the Chinese and German teams represents the best of the two worlds, inheriting ABB Germany’s 130 years of expertise in wiring accessory R&D and production, and taking advantage of China as the production base to cater to users’ pursuit of more fashionable and elegant lifestyle.”
