Featured Products
ASTAT® XT Soft Starter
Smooth, reliable performance for extended motor and component life.
The new ASTAT XT soft starter delivers reliable performance and smooth acceleration for a range of standard AC motors, from 8A to 1400A and from 230V to 690V. By controlling motor acceleration and deceleration, it reduces mechanical wear and tear on motors better than across-the-line starting methods. This is particularly true in such applications as pumps, fans, compressors and conveyors.
E2000 Miniature Circuit Breakers
E2000 Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCB) offer superior supplemental overload and short circuit protection. The new E2000 line has two levels of interruption capacity, 6 kAIC and 10 kAIC, at 480Y/277. These circuit breakers provide application flexibility with their small size and modularity. They are DIN rail mounted in one-, two-, three- and four-pole construction. The E2000 MCBs are Component Recognized under UL1077 and are CE marked.
