May 5, 2021

The safe, simple, and efficient operation of three-phase asynchronous motors is an important objective in a large number of applications. The CONTACTRON Speed Starter from Phoenix Contact is the new device class that bridges the gap between motor starters and frequency converters with easy operation.

The operator interface consists of a rotary switch and three buttons with a display, allowing you to make all settings intuitively. This compact and cost-effective solution provides you with all of the functions necessary for different speeds. These include normal speed, creeping speed, soft start, energy efficiency and ramp functions, and even safe stopping with the Safe Torque Off function.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
