CONTACTRON hybrid motor starter technology

Clever motor switching

Hybrid motor starter technology offers particularly compact and electronically safe motor switching, reversing, and protection.

CONTACTRON hybrid motor starter technology from Phoenix Contact is a microprocessor-controlled combination of wear-free solid-state technology and robust relay technology. This enables gentle switching, thereby considerably reducing the load on the relay contacts. This means that the service life of hybrid motor starters is up to ten times longer than that of purely mechanical switching devices.

This innovative technology from the switchgear sector has been awarded the Automation Award: “For the first time, all reversing contactor functions are combined in a single device with a design width of just 22.5 mm – including safety”.
