Network-capable hybrid motor starters
23 August 2015
The new versions of the Contactron hybrid motor starter from Phoenix Contact enable quick and easy integration into Profibus, Profinet, CANopen, DeviceNet, Modbus, and EtherNet/IP.
Process data, such as motor current, is transmitted to the control system via the bus system with the aid of the corresponding gateway, enabling service intervals to be optimised. The device is DIN-rail mounted.
Control signals are forwarded via the fieldbus system; there is no need for digital outputs for motor control on the controller side, and thus extensive parallel cabling at the control and signal level is no longer required.
