NHP Electrical Engineering Products extended the range of Sprecher and Schuh PCS and PDS soft starters with several new models increasing capacity to 45kW and 75kW respectively.
The soft starters offer control of all three phases to the motor, electronic motor overload protection with adjustable trip class and selectable automatic/manual reset. They also offer several other motor and system protection functions more commonly expected from high-end soft starter products.
The PCS is suitable for motor starting applications to 45kW at 400V ac and is intended for three-wire motor connection. It provides the user a selection of starting and stopping modes, thus enabling optimum control to be achieved in the majority of industrial applications.
The PDS is an advanced star/delta starter replacer now available to 75kW at 400V ac. It is intended for six-wire motor connection and offers current limit starting as standard.
The PCS and PDS soft starters fully integrate with Sprecher and Schuh switchgear and control gear products to form electronic motor control systems. Both models are also available as assembled starters (fully enclosed).
