The CONTACTRON hybrid motor starters integrate all the functions of a conventional reversing contactor circuit, including safety functions, in a single device.
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.
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.
Furthermore, the devices protect the motor by means of integrated motor protection with automatic and remote reset function. In addition, the implemented safety function according to Performance Level e (PL e)/Category 3 (Cat. 3) provides the emergency stop requirements.
