From motor starters to machine managers

Intelligent switching, protection, monitoring, and measurement

Electric motors are used in a variety of industrial applications for controlling movements. Motors are often started and reversed using classic, mechanical protective circuits. However, these require a great deal of space as well as a lot of wiring effort, and have a limited service life. Complex sensor technology is often required to collect important motor and process data. Phoenix Contact offers innovative and intelligent products for your application.

Example 1
Compact and practically wear-free motor starters can switch loads over a much longer service life than electromechanical versions. Moreover, they can be integrated into safety concepts and communication networks. They switch motors and other loads reliably and safely.
Example 2
This advanced technology also enables the acquisition of performance data. Here, the ability to detect over- and underload states enables preventive maintenance and the avoidance of mechanical damage to the loads.
Example 3
The machine manager also reliably monitors powerful loads and transmits key parameters to higher-level networks.
