Starters build in more functions

Allen-Bradley’s 190S compact starter from Rockwell Automation offers a combination starter rated up to 25A (11kW). The 190S comprises a 140M motor protection circuit breaker and a 100C contactor. These are assembled into a single unit to provide a low cost, self protected, direct-on-line starter.

The contactor and circuit breaker are pre-assembled and pre-wired onto a base. The connections to the auxiliary contacts for both the circuit breaker and contactor are brought out to a built-in terminal block. Coil terminals are also at the base of the assembly, making the unit quick to install and minimising wiring.

Starters are suitable for screw fixing, or can be mounted to one or two DIN rails. They can be installed vertically or – for compact MCC applications – horizontally. Starters are 45mm wide and can be installed without a gap between them.

The starters conform to international standards and are UL listed to 508E.
