Telemecanique TeSys U-Line LUS motor starter
Schneider Electric's next-generation motor starters combine the traditional power and control functions of a motor starter with a modular structure that provides a high degree of design flexibility. The Telemecanique TeSys U-Line LUS motor starter offers solid-state motor protection, quick selection, easy installation, and modular components that reduce inventory.
The motor starter also can be easily integrated into any automation system with its communication and interface modules for network protocols. The compact size of the U-Line LUS motor starter saves up to 50 percent of panel space over traditional solutions. In addition, the overload relay plugs into the front of the contactor, reducing the number of wire connections by half and lowering installation time.
The TeSys U-Line LUS motor starter can significantly reduce machine downtime and decrease troubleshooting with its selfdiagnosis capabilities. It provides operators with direct access to important motor starter information, such as pre-alarm, motor data display, remote reset, differentiated error display, and memorization of the last five errors.
