Safely control motors and drive units


New at industrial controls, safety relays, and soft starters from Schneider Electric / Available now in the online shop: components for the safe control and monitoring of drive technology.

For work areas in which industrial controls, protection devices, drive and safety technology are required, Automation24 has just added various high-quality solutions from Schneider Electric to its product range. Among the new additions, customers will find the TeSys industrial control product groups with various solutions for the switching and control of motors, safety relays from the Harmony XPS modular series, and Altistart and Altivar soft starters for the starting and stopping of asynchronous motors.

With this expansion of its product range, the online provider is responding directly to the needs of its customer base: “With Schneider Electric we have once again managed to establish a collaboration with a global market leader. The products are characterised by high quality and efficiency, and thus make another great addition to our technical product range,” reports Thorsten Schulze, who, as managing director, bears particular responsibility for product range management.

Control and management: all you need for your motor

Within the TeSys Industrial Controls category you will find effective solutions for the switching and protection of motors and electrical loads, which are compatible with all major international standards. As such, the TeSys Power motor protection circuit breaker protects against interruptions caused by short-circuits, overloads, blocked rotors, and earth faults.  It also enables the manual switching on/off of the motor. The TeSys Control switching devices are designed for all applications: contactors, contactor relays, and combined starter solutions. The TeSys Protect thermal overload relays, which can be mounted directly onto the power contactor, are also available to provide protection for motors.

From safety relay to soft starter

Within the area of safety technology, Schneider Electric also offers a selection of mechanical safety switches. For applications with hard-wired safety relays, the Harmony XPS Basic Series offers the optimal solution. The Universal Series, on the other hand, combines the simplicity of application of hard-wired safety relays with a wide range of status-related and diagnostic notifications, which previously required more complex field bus technology.

The Altistart 01 and Altistart 22 product range has proven to offer reliable soft starters for machine protection. The soft starters are designed for the start-up and shutdown of asynchronous motors with outputs of up to 400 kilowatts. They impress with their simple commissioning and wiring, integrated bypass protection, and simple diagnostics using integrated LEDs. For the starting and stopping of asynchronous motors in normal and heavy-duty applications, the Altivar soft starter ATS480 is available in the online shop in various versions. In addition to the selection of design variants, the current and operating performance response values can also be adjusted. Developed for various processes and infrastructures, they ensure the maximum availability of applications.
