Eaton: PowerXL DE1 Variable Speed Starter

December 16, 2019

The PowerXL DE1 variable speed starter is a product that bridges the gap between a standard electromechanical starter and a variable frequency drive. With industry-leading ease-of-use and a narrow, compact housing, the DE1 is designed to be used in flexible applications with value propositions unique to each application.


With 14 basic parameters, SmartWire-DT connectivity, and an intuitive configuration module, the PowerXL DE1 set up and commissioning is easy for any panel builder and MOEM. The DE1 was designed for customers who have basic application but still require variable frequency and advanced motor protection. The design allows customers to simplify their design and reduce installation and commissioning time while introducing an innovative solution to their system.
