The LQ Group has developed the A-TEC motor starter, a device for control cabinet systems that modularizes secondary functions such as starting and stopping the motor in order to focus on the machine's key functions.

 
According to the company, the new construction requires as much as 50 percent less space and fewer cables than standard control cabinets. The board is already completely wired and tested, so the individual components no longer have to be wired up and the motor starter can be easily integrated into all existing wiring schemes and machine layouts. The module mounting houses the ASi communications interface and has a hook on the rear so that it can be attached directly to the existing mounting rail.
 
The motor starter is available in two different models. The smallest module is designed for motors up to 3.0 kW, while the larger model is suitable for motors up to 5.5 kW. The input interface platform is also available as a purely I/O module. Individual components can be mounted to it as required.
 
The motor starter can be directly installed wherever there is an existing ASi-bus. In all other systems it can be integrated using a gateway. It is suitable for the operation of asynchronous motors or for supplying power to equipment assemblies. The I/O module is suitable for climate control, area shutdowns, external automation and diagnosis modules.
