Maybe it's time to get yourself a hybrid
Enjoy a tenfold increase in service life with gentle switching, thanks to the CONTACTRON hybrid technology. Experience greater system availability, thanks to a combination of wear-free semiconductor technology and robust relay technology. For even further system availability, the CONTACTRON hybrid motor starters offer short-circuit protection in accordance with IEC/EN 60947-4-2. This means protection of personnel, machines, and systems, even in the event of short circuit. To continue operations, simply replace the fuses. The switching device is once again ready to go.
Transfer your process data easily and network your devices quickly using both the Interface connection for integration into fieldbus systems and the available IO-Link motor starter variants.
The CONTACTRON range can be connected to PROFINET via the EMPNET-GATEWAY-IFS, using the DIN rail connector. Digital outputs are not required to control the motor starters.
The EM-PNET-GATEWAY-IFS has eight digital inputs and four freely programmable outputs. For a modular or distributed structure, this means you occupy fewer I/O cards on the controller or remote I/Os.
The IO-Link enabled hybrid motor starters that can be networked help you ensure consistent communication between the field and control level. Not only do you benefit from space and wiring savings, you also get the advantage of diagnostic functions.
The Phoenix Contact hybrid motor starters are the smart choice for when you need to switch and reverse your electric motors quickly and reliably.
