THE new Sprecher+Schuh KA7 busbar mounting and connection system from NHP is a versatile and simple solution for assembling powerful motor control systems.
An integral part of the Sprecher+Schuh Advanced Control System (ACS) motor control components, KA7 caters for a variety of starter configurations and their associated control equipment.
An extensive range of busbar adaptor units with several mounting options is available including those with a width of just 45mm to save on valuable panel space.
In addition, supply modules complete with covers provide a neat and convenient method for connecting incoming cables up to 300mm2. Also included is a dual purpose feeder module that serves as a busbar support as well as an incoming cable connection point for more compact systems.
KA7's modular and plug-in design facilitates assembly of motor starters, power wiring and control equipment. This innovative design makes commissioning and maintenance more efficient due to its organised structure.
The KA7 system also introduces a unique concept to the range with DeCon modules. DeCon is a design that allows the user to remove a starter without exposing the busbar. This allows production to continue safely without the need to isolate the complete system.
By using a screwdriver, the equipment carrier section can be separated from the base. As a result, the base remains fixed to the busbars leaving it completely shrouded. This reduces the need for scheduled downtimes for performing maintenance.
Also, with the use of control plugs for connecting field wiring, the control wiring can be left in the panel when removing the starter and simply plugged back in when the starter is replaced.
KA 7 is suitable for use in Form 1 and Form 2b switchboards according to AS3439 and allows the creation of powerful and safe motor control systems.
It is user-friendly, provides the ultimate solution for motor control and load centres, and always maintains an impressive finish.
