All-In-One Motor Controller Improves Protection
Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. introduced the MMP-T32 motor controller. Integrating low voltage circuit breakers and thermal overload relays, the MMP-T32 motor controller protects the motor branch circuits from overload or phase loss during short-circuit conditions. The MMP-T32 motor controller incorporates low voltage circuit breakers and thermal overload relays in a single unit for greater motor protection than a standard motor starter, while reducing the number of required devices and eliminating about 50 percent of the wiring.
In addition to using the MMP-T32 motor controller to manually start or disconnect a motor, it can also be used as an IEC circuit breaker (IEC60947-2) or a UL60947-4-1A type E self-protected manual motor controller. The MMP-T32 can also function as a UL60947-4-1A type F self-protected combination motor controller when paired with Mitsubishi Electric MS-T series magnetic contactors.
The new motor controller is suited for OEMs and panel shops that want to downsize their motor control panels and reduce wiring time.
