Courtesy: WoehnerWoehner’s hybrid motor starter, MOTUS ContactronControl, is targeted at industries using motor controlled motion. MOTUS is used in place of traditional motor starting components and  is perfectly suited for system or machine designs that require motor loads of up 5 hp. MOTUS is a compact and highly reliable motor controller that can be installed in less than half the time of motor starters currently available. MOTUS is also the first hybrid motor starter that not only incorporates three mounting options—60 mm System Classic, 60 mm System Compact, and DIN-rail mounting—but also incorporates short-circuit protection into the housing of the device, eliminating the need to mount circuit protection elsewhere in the panel design. MOTUS is a hybrid device because it uses a solid-state semiconductor switch to start and stop motor loads at up to 5 hp, at 480 Vac.
