Eaton Electric renews its controls range
Eaton has introduced a new range of enclosed controls to international standards for motors, heating and lighting.
Eaton Electric has introduced a complete range of control gear for motors, heating and lighting. The launch follows the introduction of its 9 kW ADS8 enclosed direct-online (DOL) starters a year ago. The new DOL starters are available in AC3 ratings up to 15 kW. There are also star-delta starters up to 25 kW, enclosed contactors for controlling heating and lighting, pushbutton control units and local disconnectors (rotary isolators). The new Autoline enclosed heating and lighting contactors meet IEC EN 60947 and IEC 408 and are in metaclad IP55 enclosures. They are available with one, two and four poles in AC1 ratings from 25 to 112 A for heating an general mixed low-inductance load or 12 to 50 A AC5a duty for lighting. Chris Pack, Eaton’s product-line manager, says, ‘The ADS7 starter range has served the market well for 20 years, and the ADS series has a pedigree going back many years. The new ADS8 starters Autoline contactors and associated pushbuttons and disconnectors offer the industry a modern range of products to international standards that should carry us forward well into the next decade.’
