  • Protection is everything.

    The SM series motor protection circuit breakers protect against short circuits and overload and help save time and space in many application scenarios.

    For maximum protection in starters where motor control is carried out by contactors, it is important to rely on motor protection circuit breakers. There are many advantages to this solution and LOVATO Electric has recently renewed its range, further improving its performance. The SM series includes short circuit protection in addition to thermal protection: a complete solution that reduces the need for thermal overload relays and fuses in the system, saving space and wiring time. For added safety, the SM series motor protection circuit breakers disconnect all 3 phases, in contrast to 2, as is typical for fuses. They also act as a disconnect switch, thus reducing the components to be included in a panel. They enable direct motor starting and provide safety door coupling, using accessories that extend operation to the front of the panel.

    SM Series. Complete for any requirement!

    All ranges of the new SM series of motor protection circuit breakers, from 0.1 to 100 A, have been updated. The series includes 3 sizes: SM1, with a range extended up to 40 A (available versions: with buttons or with rotary knob for motor protection,with rotary knob for starters and a version for fuse monitoring), SM2 from 34 to 63 A and SM3 from 55 to 100 A, both with rotary knobs.

    The SM1 range provides magnetic and thermal protection, except for the SM1RM version, which is only magnetic, to protect starters where there is already overload protection. Tripping of rotary type motor protection circuit breakers (SM1R) is shown visually. Both magnetic and thermal trip indication, for the SM1 with rotary knob and SM3 range, is given by the knob turning to the trip position, while a red flag on the SM1R is shown only if a short circuit occurs. High performance plastic is used on the SM1 range, offering IEC/EN 60335 compliance, for the foodservice industry and similar, and EN 45545 compliance for railway applications (fire protection and smoke emission). Rotary type motor protection circuit breakers have Type E approval, specific to UL, which requires increased isolation distances between terminals and stringent testing of breaking capacity.

    Small size, great protection.

    The SM1 range is completely modular and easy to install, and only takes up a 45 mm wide space in the electrical panel. Mounting the push button version on the front of distribution boards panels provides quick access to commands, preventing the need for non technical personnel to open the panel door. The side-mount auxiliary contacts, the signalling contacts and trip releases are compatible with modular panels. A broad range of plastic enclosures, ideal for small machineries and for isolated motors, is available for rotary and button-controlled motor protection circuit breakers up to 40 A.

    The various types and sizes of enclosures (with rubber membrane, emergency stop button or rotary control) make the products suitable for all application requirements and make it possible to use the motor protection circuit breakers with the full range of accessories: auxiliary contacts, shunt trip releases and undervoltage trip releases. Plastics and construction are designed for heavy duty applications (-20 °C to +60 °C), with IP65 protection, UL Type 4X and UV-ray resistant, so as to even pass the strict UL ball impact test.

    The design has also been updated for sizes SM2 and SM3, making their use even more convenient. They cover rated currents from 34 to 100 A with a high breaking capacity and are equipped with rotary knobs. The range of accessories for SM series motor protection circuit breakers includes padlockable door coupling handles for rotary knob versions as standard commands for greater operator safety during maintenance. The installation and the fitting into the panel are now even easier and faster, also thanks to the support accessories for mounting extension rods.

  • ADXL Soft Starter
    The new range of LOVATO Electric Soft Starters ADXL series from 30 to 320A is available. The new ADXL is equipped with an LCD icon display and NFC connectivity for configuration from Android smartphones and tablets. Stop by our booth for a demonstration....

  • ADXL soft starters have integrated functions to protect the motor and the starter itself by the imposition of limits and alarms on electrical measurements; most are customizable. They are also able to monitor motor temperature and their own internal temperature, in order to protect their SCR devices against overtemperature. Motor overtemperature protection can also be provided through an external PTC temperature sensor.

    ADXL soft starters are ideal for simple “plug and play” applications thanks to their installation wizard and also for applications that demand high-performance in terms of control and protection during motor startup and operation.

    Two-phase control during motor starting and stopping combined with torque control during operation reduce thermal power dissipation.
    After startup, the soft starter's internal by-pass contacts close to minimise energy consumption.

    Thanks to the optional EXC1042 RS485 communication module, compatibility with supervision and  Synergy energy management software and Xpress configuration and remote control software, users can keep all soft starter values under constant control and edit setup parameters too.
