Here you will find an overview of the advantages offered by hybrid technology.
All advantages at a glance
Up to 75% less space required
Switch and reverse motors up to 4 kW – no wider than your thumb! For the first time, all reversing contactor functions are combined on just a 22.5 mm DIN rail – in a single device.
Wiring time reduced by 75%
The internal load and locking circuits minimize wiring effort.
Simply faster wiring
Let CONTACTRON take care of most of the load wiring as well as the locking circuit for you. This saves time and enables clearly arranged wiring in the control cabinet.
Ten times longer service life
A microprocessor-controlled combination of robust relay technology and wear-free solid-state technology enables “gentle” switching. This significantly reduces the load on the switching contacts of the intelligent hybrid output module.
Easily incorporate CONTACTRON into your safety chain. The integrated safety function makes this particularly straightforward. Regardless of whether you need Cat. 3, PL e or SIL 3.
Simplicity in safety
Easy safety engineering – since you already have all the data to hand. Read safety-related values easily – from category 3 and PL e to SIL 3.
Simply safer motor protection
Built-in motor protection makes CONTACTRON the top choice here as well.
The CONTACTRON hybrid motor starters meet coordination type II according to IEC/EN 60947-4-2. This means protection of personnel, machines, and systems – even in the event of short circuit.
The hybrid motor starters can be mounted flexibly on standard DIN rails or on power busbar systems using mounting adapters.
Networked via IFS system
The IFS system consists of devices which can be connected to each other via the DIN rail connector. As the usual parallel wiring is redundant, the wiring effort is reduced.
Available with Push-in technology
The hybrid motor starters can be wired without tools, thanks to Push-in technology.
