The increased intelligence of PKE motor-protective circuit-breakers extends the basic, purely protective functionality to include switch on and off, higher availability, greater efficiency and cost effectiveness. Access to process-relevant data in the motor starter environment will be indispensable in the future for pre-planned maintenance, repair and the guarantee of system availability.
Modular standard components for motor starter configuration are optimally matched to one another and are simple to combine with accessories from the PKZ system, fulfilling customer requirements for a system with exchangeable components.
Motor starter combinations with PKE enable integration into the automation world via SmartWire-DT. The actual flow of current in the PKE can also be detected via the modular COM circuit SWire-PKE as well as indication functions such as diagnostics, status or overload messages. Data can be directly transferred to control devices and is available across the system. This data availability enhances the efficiency and the reliability of the drives."
