Starters Extend Motor Life And Save Space

Sensata Technologies’ Crydom DRMS Series hybrid motor starters integrate both solid-state and electromechanical relay technologies to produce a compact device that can control electrical power delivery to motors as large as 4kW. Suitable applications range from access control, packaging equipment, lifts and escalators to industrial process control and machine tooling systems.

The DRMS Series offers features such as soft start, soft stop and an internal mains disconnect relay in case of a fault. The starter’s soft start/soft stop function allows for the gradual increase or decrease of power control, thereby extending motor life.

Other features include overload protection, forward/reverse, adjustable settings for starting/deceleration torque, starting/deceleration ramp, nominal motor current, and a reset button on the front of the unit for external manual reset. The 22-mm wide DIN Rail mount motor starter package features an output rating of 9A at 480 Vac/24 Vdc control voltage and four LED status indicators.
