The internal load and locking circuits save time and enable clear wiring in the control cabinet. The amount of wiring involved is reduced by up to 75% compared to a mechanical standard solution.

Simply faster wiring


CONTACTRON hybrid motor starters

CONTACTRON hybrid motor starters combine up to four functions in a single device as required. These include forward running, with easy control via a 24 V PLC output card, and reverse running with optional reversing function including locking and load wiring.
