Schneider Electric has launched a range of Tesys compact modular motor starters, to cover outputs up to 65A, with cableless interconnectivity between modules and an updated termination system.

The range has many benefits for end users, integrators and panel builders.

These include easy installation, reduced panel space requirements, quick-fitting click- together modules, updated permanent cable interconnection, easy communications and a significantly reduced inventory of parts needed to meet the broadest application requirements.

The modular system 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 65A, which connect directly to thermal overload relays from 9 to 65A.

While the range’s footprint of 45mm width up to 38A is standard, its 55mm width up to 65A is one of the most compact on the market.

Another feature is a design of cable connection called Everlink.

Instead of standard screw terminations, Everlink uses cap-head bolts to clamp cables, combining screw and spring clamp technology to provide a semi-permanent connection.

Apart from allowing 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 Tesys D range can be fitted with Tesys Quickfit pre-wired control, to allow fast connection with minimal wiring.

Where units are connected side-by-side, Schneider Electric has devised an S-form solid copper bus-bar that is unobtrusively sandwiched between the two units being connected.

Once more, fitting is simple and quick, creating space-saving racks of starter combinations.

In short, the 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.

As they are available globally, OEMs are assured of technical support anywhere their equipment is exported to.
