Motor control and protection products

4th Quarter 2018 Other technologies

Magnet’s portfolio of space saving Eaton motor control and protection devices offers motor starting and protection solutions in diverse industries, including mining, oil and gas, pulp and paper, OEMs, the automotive sector and in general utilities. “This range, which encompasses contactors, circuit breakers and overload relays, has been designed for easy installation and simple setup, increased accuracy, greater visibility into the motor status and a higher degree of protection,” says managing director, Brian Howarth. “Eaton motor control and protection products efficiently meet the demands of challenging applications, including motor control centres, field starter panels and heavy duty pumps, as well as conveyors, fans, pumps and compressors.”

DILM contactors the AC-3/400 V utilisation category are rated for normal switching duty for AC induction motors. Typical applications include compressors, lifts, mixers, pumps, escalators, agitators, fan conveyor belts, centrifuges, hinged flaps, bucket-elevator air-conditioning systems and general drives for manufacturing and processing machines.

DILM contactors for utilisation category AC-4/400 V are rated for the extreme switching duty of squirrel-cage motors. Operating characteristics are inching, plugging and reversing. Electrical characteristics for making and breaking the current are up to 6 times the rated motor current. Typical applications include printing presses, wire-drawing machines and centrifuges, as well as for special drives used for manufacturing and processing machines.

Magnet’s Eaton motor control and protection range also includes overload relays (0,1 – 800 A) and soft starters (18,5 – 560 kW) and variable speed drives (0,75 – 160 kW).
