Schneider TeSys Compact Motor Starters

Schneider Electric has launched a new range of TeSys compact modular motor starters to cover a span of outputs up to 65A that come with cableless interconnectivity between modules and a completely new termination system.

The new range has many benefits to both end users, integrators and panel builders. These include easy installation, reduced panel space requirements, quick fitting click together modules, radically different permanent cable interconnection, easy communications and a significantly reduced inventory of parts needed to meet the broadest application requirements.

The modular solution consists of motor starters in Thermal-magnetic types from 9 to 65A and in magnetic circuit breaker types from 25 to 65A. These can be coupled directly with 3 and 4-pole contactors of 40, 50 or 65 A and in turn these connect directly to thermal overload relays from 9 to 65A. An immediately obvious feature of the range is that while its footprint of 45mm width up to 38A is standard, its 55mm width up to 65A is one of the most compact in the market. This is a great benefit to panel builders that constantly need to save valuable panel space.

The second obvious feature is a completely new design of cable connection that Schneider Electric has called EverLink. Instead of standard screw terminations, Everlink uses cap head bolts to clamp cables combining both screw and spring clamp technology, providing a semi permanent connection. The benefit, apart from quicker and surer installation, the EverLink connection cannot become loosened or suffer cable creep over time by thermal variations or vibration.

For communications in automated systems, the new TeSys D range can be fitted with TeSys Quickfit pre-wired control to enable fast connection with again minimal wiring.

Where units are connected side by side, Schneider Electric has devised an ingenious ā€œSā€ form solid copper busbar that fits extremely unobtrusively sandwiched between the two units being connected. Once more, fitting is both simple and remarkably quick, creating elegant space saving racks of starter combinations.

In short, the new TeSys D range affords a universal range of units by combining modules. The modules are Type 2 tested for high breaking loads and share common accessories across the range, thereby reducing spares and stockholdings. Being available globally, OEMs are assured of technical support anywhere their equipment is exported to.
