Modular Motor Starter

BL20 xStart motor starter modules allow 3-phase motor control to be connected to the same rack as standard I/O. BL20 xStart motor starter modules are mounted directly next to other BL20 modules, and are controlled by the same gateway.

This allows the motors to be controlled via DeviceNet, Profibus-DP or CANopen fieldbus protocols. BL20 motor starters contain a base and power module, and are available in direct online and reversing versions. The module’s base contains the I/O and communication electronics, and can be configured to allow power modules of various ratings to be used.
