Easy motor starting solutions

2nd Quarter 2018 Electrical switching & drive systems & components

New to Magnet’s range of Schneider low-voltage motor starting solutions are EasyPact TVS motor starters, designed for motor control and protection for simple applications. The new E range – an extension of the current range – includes contactors, thermal overload relays, control relays and motor circuit breakers, all designed and precision engineered to give OEMs and panel builders a motor starter solution that offers high performance and safety at a competitive price.

Direct mounting of the thermal overload underneath the contactor minimises cabling and installation time, also enhancing reliability of the system and saving panel space. This all contributes towards cost saving. A clear reference system ensures easy product selection for every application and because fewer components are required, design is simplified and stocking requirements are reduced. Thermal elements for overload protection include automatic compensation for ambient temperature variations. For protection to personnel, all live parts are safeguarded against direct finger contact to IP20.

The EasyPact TVS range ensures co-ordination between protection and control components, which means there is a safe and fast restart after a short circuit. To ensure suitable protection of electrical components against fire, product damage or power loss, Magnet recommends installation of this system in a spacious CRN steel enclosure. Severe conditions, including dust, humidity and high temperatures, can expose personnel and equipment to serious risks.
