Schneider Electric has launched a new range of TeSys compact modular motor starters to cover a span of outputs up to 65A that come with cableless interconnectivity between modules and a completely new termination system.
The new range has many benefits to both end users, integrators and panel builders. These include easy installation, reduced panel space requirements, quick fitting click together modules, radically different permanent cable interconnection, easy communications and a significantly reduced inventory of parts needed to meet the broadest application requirements.
The modular solution consists of motor starters in Thermal-magnetic types from 9 to 65A and in magnetic circuit breaker types from 25 to 65A. These can be coupled directly with 3 and 4-pole contactors of 40, 50 or 65 A and in turn these connect directly to thermal overload relays from 9 to 65A. An immediately obvious feature of the range is that while its footprint of 45mm width up to 38A is standard, its 55mm width up to 65A is one of the most compact in the market. This is a great benefit to panel builders that constantly need to save valuable panel space.
