The podis®/gesis® motor & soft starters for decentralized application close to the motor are based on the podis power bus solution and can be used in harsh industrial environments.
LOW WEAR & ENERGY SAVING
In a particularly compact housing and high protection rating, the podis® MCU and gesis® MCU motor starters combine the function of the electronic direct and reversing starter with AS-i control. In spatially distributed drive applications, they start and protect three-phase asynchronous motors up to 1.5 kilowatts.
The electronic podis® MSS and gesis® MSS soft starters supplement the portfolio of motor starters with the functions of soft starting and stopping for three-phase asynchronous motors up to 1.5 kilowatts. The acceleration time, deceleration time, and breakaway torque are smoothly adjustable.
Space-saving and quick installation:
With their compact design in protection rating IP65, the podis® motor & soft starters can be plugged directly into the podis® flat cable output and fixed in place via two fast-closing manual locking brackets. Alternatively, the gesis® motor starters can be mounted on a mounting plate. In this case, the AS-i field bus is fed in parallel and separately to the power bus and on to the components. This space-saving structure speeds up installation by up to 70%.
