TeSys T motor management system
Effectively managing a motor system can be complex and costly. Users can overcome the difficulties and compatibility issues of upgrading their electronic systems with the Telemecanique brand TeSys T. The TeSys T advanced motor management and protection system combines primary motor protection requirements with additional functionality. This system guarantees adaptation to all installed base motor management needs.
The system consists of an efficient multifunction protection device, separate from the automation system, and an operator control unit for reading and modification of monitored parameters. User-friendly configuration software helps users easily implement motor starters equipped with a TeSys T motor management system. An expansion module with voltage measurement and additional logic inputs completes the controller functions. The TeSys T motor management system records motor history, statistics, and timestamped faults to give users a comprehensive real-time view of their motor control.
The additional information offered by the TeSys T motor management systems allows users to improve analysis of current faults and anticipate future system performance. Adapting the monitoring protection and control systems helps avoid nuisance trips, reduces downtime, and lowers maintenance and repair costs.
The solution supports up to five fieldbus types, including Ethernet, Modbus, CANopen, DeviceNet, and Profibus, without any other auxiliary modules or communication gateways. The TeSys T motor management system offers six motor control functions, including overload, two-step, and two-speed modes to simplify configuration and implementation of the motor starter. The system guards against motor malfunctions, such as overload, current peak, and excessive consumption.
