Electric Motor Control using Fuji Manual Motor Starters
AutomationDirect now offers Fuji's DUO series line of motor contactors, overload relays, and manual motor starters, as well as their Odyssey line of large contactors and overload relays. These motor controller products provide complete electric motor control solutions up to 300 horsepower at 480 VAC.
Fuji's DUO line of motor controls components are fully integrated and can be used to build a conventional contactor/ overload starter, or the Fuji manual motor starter (MMS) can be combined with an SC-E series contactor for a combination motor starter. Since the MMS is UL listed for Category E self-protected motor control, it can be used for motor branch circuit protection without the need for additional motor protection such as fuses or molded case circuit breakers.
NOTE: Changes in UL 508 now require that short circuit trip contacts should be added to the manual motor starter (MMS), and a terminal cover should be added to the 32 amp frame size MMS.
AutomationDirect offers the MMS in a 32-Amp version with a 45 mm frame width and a 63-Amp version with a 55 mm frame width.
Both manual motor starter versions have high breaking capacities, up to 100,000 Amps in some ranges. The MMS combination motor starters can accommodate electric motors up to 40 horsepower at 480 VAC. The conventional motor starters in the DUO line can accommodate motors up to 100 horsepower at 480 VAC.
The DUO line is available in 24 VAC, 24 VDC, 120 VAC, and 240 VAC coil versions.
