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.
