Hybrid motor starters


Clever switching and protection

CONTACTRON provides state-of-the-art switching and efficient protection for motors. Hybrid motor starters and motor managers can be easily integrated into your PROFIBUS network.

The CONTACTRON hybrid motor starter combines all the functions of a conventional reversing contactor circuit in one particularly compact device. The device is integrated into your fieldbus system using a PROFIBUS gateway and the SmartWire DTTM wiring system. You can connect 58 hybrid motor starters with a maximum length of 600 meters per gateway.
You can also detect all critical load states such as under and overloads using the motor manager. If required, the motor manager switches the drive off and thereby protects the motor and the connected system mechanics. Up to 32 motor managers can be connected to each PROFIBUS gateway.
