eaton-260-03-2014Eaton is now offering its multi-functional EMS electronic motor starter for motors with ratings from 0,06 to 3 kW with integrated control via the innovative SmartWire-DT communication and connection technology. This makes the connection of the motor starter to the automation environment easier, faster, less prone to errors and therefore more cost-effective. The starter offers the user all the important functions of a reversing contactor circuit in a single device, with a mounting width of only 30 mm. The product provides DOL motor start, reversing motor start and motor protection to IEC 60947-4-1 as well as the safety-related stopping of the drive to category 3 (EN 13849-1). The connection technology keeps the wiring to a minimum, removing the need for both the control cables which normally connect the motor starter via the I/O level to the PLC, and the supply cables to the devices.
