MOVIFIT® SC Motor Starters

Motor starters MOVIFIT® SC

This motor starter is generally used in systems which include electronics mounted close to the motor. Besides smooth starting and braking for up to two motors, the innovative unit design offers many benefits for installation operation and service in terms of time and cost.
Problem free starting! With the MOVIFIT® SC electronic motor starter. Flexible ramps for starting and stopping. Operation of up to two motors simultaneously or one motor for two directions of rotation. Integrated brake control, which enables operation on virtually all common fieldbus systems with potential decentralised inputs and outputs as well as operation of IE3 motors. These motor starter offers you a broad areas of applications.
The robust aluminium cast housing in IP65 enclosure protection is divided into electronics unit (EBOX) and connection unit (ABOX). A major benefit is the closing mechanism with only one screw and the automatic unit replacement. This enables quick assembly and smooth unit replacement for servicing.
The integrated T distributor for energy and communication, the integrated repair switch and digital IOs means that a wide variety of external additional components are no longer required for the installation. This saves time and money.
The HygienicPlus design for use in extreme ambient conditions, for example in wet conditions in the beverage industry, is also available as standard.
