Freedom NEMA Motor Control

Eaton’s Freedom starters and contactors feature a compact, space-saving design, using state-of-the-art technology and the latest in high strength, impact and temperature resistant insulating materials. In addition to the bimetallic overload, Eaton also offers a series of electronic overload relay (C440) available as a standalone unit and assembled with Freedom contactor. These adjustable bimetallic ambient compensated contactors are designed for use with CE or CN non-reversing and reversing contactors. They have interchangeable heater packs and are available in four sizes for overload protection up to 900 hp, reducing the number of different contactor/overload relay combinations that have to be stocked. They also feature a full line of snap-on accessories common to both IEC and NEMA devices. To learn more about the Freedom NEMA starters and contractors, click here.

Enclosed NEMA Contactors & Starters

Eaton’s NEMA enclosed control line (ECN) utilizes the Freedom series of contactors and starters and provides you the ability to select the motor starting equipment that is specific to your needs. Freedom contactors and starters feature a compact, space-saving design, using state-of-the-art technology and the latest in high strength, impact and temperature resistant insulating materials. The product offering includes non-reversing, reversing and multi-speed contactors and starters, and are available as non-combination or combination.  Click here for more information on the enclosed NEMA contactors and starters.

XT IEC Contactors

Eaton’s XT IEC contactors are powerful, efficient and versatile, and can be combined with Eaton’s full range of electronic overload relays and bimetal relays. These devices stand out for their reduced power consumption, which makes them more energy efficient and also reduces the size of the power supply units. XT IEC contactors are suitable for global use and cover the entire output range, from mini contactor relays (up to 7 A) all the way to vacuum contactors (up to 3180 A).

Soft Starts

Eaton DS7 Soft Start Controller

Eaton’s DS7 easily fits in place of existing soft starters, wye-delta starters or across-the-line NEMA and IEC starters. The voltage ramp start method provides a voltage ramp to the motor for constant torque increase. Users set initial voltage values and the duration of the ramp to full voltage conditions. Soft Stop allows for a controlled stopping of load when a stop-time greater than the coast-to-stop time is desired; for high friction loads where a sudden stop may cause system damage.

Eaton S811+/S801+ Soft Starters

Eaton’s S811+/S801+ line of intelligent technologies soft starters is designed to be the smallest, most compact soft starter in the market today. With this small size, it can easily fit in place of existing soft starter designs, wye-delta starters or across-the-line NEMA and IEC starters. The S811/S811+ works with all motors from fractional horsepower up to motors requiring 1000 amps of steady state current. The built-in over-load (in ranges from 12 – 1000 amps) and run bypass contactor make installation and setup quick and easy. The overload also offers some advanced protective functions to give additional motor protection. With the pump control option, it is the number one soft starter available for pumping applications.
