Application sectors include robotic, industrial, manufacturing and material handling systems.
Expanding on its extensive product line for motion control applications, Sensata Technologies has launched the Crydom DRMS Series hybrid motor starters.
These new hybrid starters integrate the benefits of both solid state and electromechanical relay technologies to produce a compact device that can control electrical power delivery to motors as large as 4kW. Suitable applications range from access control, packaging equipment, lifts and escalators to industrial process control and machine tooling systems.
Unlike many motor starters of similar size, the DRMS Series offers features such as soft start, soft stop and an internal mains disconnect relay in case of a fault. The starter’s soft start/soft stop function allows for the gradual increase or decrease of power control, thereby extending motor life.
