EC: tiastar SmartStart motor control center
Power – Motor control center: The new tiastar SmartStart option from Siemens features plug-and-play functionality that reduces commissioning time with preprogrammed and preconfigured data. High-density designs meeting UL and NEMA standards, while reducing unit size for NEMA 1 through starters, allow for up to a 10% weight reduction and a 25% smaller footprint. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice honorable mention.
Designed for the advanced needs of high-end process industries and leveraging Profibus technology, tiastar SmartStart offers increased operational transparency, advanced diagnostics, and—specifically when compared with traditionally wired MCC—significantly easier troubleshooting and start-up. Autonomous backup function ensures continued operation in case a general network failure occurs.
