Hybrid motor starters in the assembly plant at Hengst SE & Co. KG
The products from Hengst are produced with extensive manufacturing capability. This ensures independence from external suppliers as well as the highest level of flexibility and quality. All in-house production systems, including software and electrical design, are planned, built, and installed by the company. This ensures that the systems are up to meeting the applicable requirements, demonstrate a high level of availability, and that maintenance is optimized to suit individual needs.
The quality of the components used in the system, easy operation, and the durability of the components is of great importance. With this in mind, Hengst uses CONTACTRON hybrid motor starters from the Phoenix Contact product family to operate the conveyor belts installed in its high-quality assembly plants.
The robust design and straightforward wiring and operation were our reasons for choosing CONTACTRON.
Longer maintenance cycles with hybrid motor starters
The service life of CONTACTRON hybrid motor starters is ten times longer, which is also an advantage because Hengst works with high switching frequencies. This significantly extends maintenance cycles, and the availability of the system is increased. The hybrid motor starters, which are ideal for motor types with a power of up to around 3 kW, are also suited for use in small freight lifts in addition to conveyor belts.
