Automation Award

Phoenix Contact won the Automation Award 2008 for the CONTACTRON hybrid motor starter. The award was presented at the SPS/IPC/Drives trade fair by KONRADIN Verlag.

Phoenix Contact had previously entered the innovative product for nomination. The winners of the Automation Award are chosen by a panel of experts and visitors to the trade fair.

CONTACTRON impressed the judges. That's because the hybrid motor starter offers many advantages over mechanical switching devices. The operating principle combines robust relay technology with wear-free solid-state technology in a particularly compact housing design.

Motor switching/protective functions, which previously were discretely set up and wired with several conventional switching devices, are integrated in the smallest possible space. They therefore revolutionize power wiring in the control cabinet.
