Electric motor soft starters, contactors, overload relays, & solid-state soft-starters.
Self Contained, Ready To Install
In one small package, PCS electric motor Controllers offer a built-in overload relay, a bypass contactor and a microprocessor controller that provides soft starting for most industrial applications. The standard Soft Start mode provides a smooth voltage ramp-up to full motor speed, while the Current Limit Starting mode limits inrush in high inertia applications. A Soft Stop feature ramps down high friction loads smoothly, eliminating sudden deceleration in these applications.
For Use Anywhere
Sprecher Schuh PCS electric motor Softstarters come in three different frame sizes. The smallest frame is from 3A...37A, the middle size is from 43A...85A and the largest frame size is 108A...135A. These units are available from 200V...600V - 50/60 Hz. This assures the devices can be used anywhere in the world.
Many convenient features
PCS Soft-starters are reliable and easy to use.
The PF electric motor soft starters are fully intelligent devices that have the following features:
Dual power terminals speed wiring
CA7-30 through 85 contactors are designed with two power terminals for all three poles. This simplifies power wiring of interconnected contactors in reversing, reduced voltage and two-speed applications. Simplified wiring means less labor and less cost
Sprecher + Schuh contactors are also available with electronic DC coil for direct control from a PLC.
The electronic DC coil has low power consumption designed to control electric motors and other loads and is especially alligned to the specific requirement of electronic control circuits. The low power consumption of 1.7 allows direct control through PLCs without the need for interposing relays. Power dissipation is greatly reduced limiting the heat effect in control panels.
Reversible coil provides total flexibility
When shipped, both coil connections are normally located at the top of the contactor in preparation for mounting an overload relay at the bottom. For multi-starter panels, however, the coil can be reversed. CA7 contactors can either be ordered with the coil reversed or may be easily reversed in the field.
|CT7N Bimetallic Thermal Overload Relays
Ensure reliable protection with current-limiting calibration & ambient temperature compensation.
Sprecher + Schuh has always paid particular attention to the subject of motor protection. This concern is reflected in our CT line of thermal overload relays that include many standard features not available with traditional overload protection devices. And, CT7N overload relays are designed to mount directly to the load side of Sprecher + Schuh CA7 Contactors.
Consistent and reliable protection
The consistent high quality of Sprecher + Schuh thermal overload relays is ensured by a complex current calibration procedure performed after each unit is at full operating temperature. Calibration is performed at the largest and smallest current the overload can handle. The accurate time/current characteristic curve obtained in this manner guarantees reliable motor protection every time.
Shuch overload relays
Superior Class 10 characteristics
Today's T-Frame motors have less copper and iron that the old U-Frame motors that were popular when traditional Class 20 overload relays were designed. For this reason, faster Class 10 overloads like the CT Series have been recognized by many motor manufacturers as the ideal type to assure optimum protection of "T" frame motors.
Protection from single phase conditions
A unique feature not found in traditional thermal overload relays provides accelerated tripping under single phase conditions. This is accomplished with a special "differential tripping" mechanism built into CT7N.
Sprecher + Schuh offers a broad selection of pre-assembled or "build-from-stock" starters housed in either a CUL-approved Type 1, 12K enclosure or a UL-Approved Type 4, 4X, 12 enclosure. Built for convenience, space savings and economy, KWIKstarters are efficiently designed to use stock CA7 contactors and CT7K thermal overload relays or the advanced CEP7 solid state overload. Contactor and overload are either prewired and pre-mounted onto the enclosure's built-in DIN-rail or may be ordered as separate components. Ample knockouts and open terminals guarantee quick, no fuss wiring.
KWIK starters are sized for most industrial applications
These starters control motors up to 25HP @ 460V (30HP @ 575V) in an enclosure measuring only 187 x 90mm (7-3/8" x 3-1/2"). This covers over 85% of industrial motor control applications in a very compact package that can be mounted adjacent to or directly on equipment.
Designed for simplicity
The enclosure for the KWIKstarter is designed for simplicity. The START button mechanically interfaces with a special side mounted N.O. auxiliary (Cat.# CA7-PA-H10) with minimal wiring. The STOP button also mechanically interfaces with the N.C. contact on the overload relay, providing STOP and RESET functions with no additional wirig.
