Schneider Electric TeSys® D Contactors Incorporate Everlink® Termination Technology to Reduce Installation Time, Increase Reliability
Palatine, Ill. (USA), March 2, 2009 - Schneider Electric, the global leader in energy management, has introduced the latest additions to its industry-leading range of motor control products with TeSys® D 40A, 50A and 65A contactors featuring Everlink® termination technology. The new contactor offer provides reduced installation time, along with increased reliability and space savings.
"Schneider Electric's Everlink technology is exclusive to TeSys D 40A, 50A and 65A contactors and TeSys GV3P 40A and 65A manual motor protectors," said Tim Roberts, Schneider Electric staff product specialist. "TeSys D 40A to 65A contactors are the only contactors on the market today that incorporate the Everlink termination technology."
Everlink termination technology saves time by providing a direct connection to TeSys D overload relays and TeSys GV3P manual motor protectors without requiring an interconnect block. Everlink technology also reduces wiring errors with direct connections. Spring termination technology moves with the wire as it relaxes over time to reduce the need to retighten.
"The TeSys D 40A to 65A contactors are extremely easy to install in DIN rail or panel-mount configurations," Roberts said. "At only 55 mm in width and with an optional S-shaped busbar component for side-by-side mounting that allows assembly of a contactor and manual motor protector on the same DIN rail, the contactors save significant space."
The TeSys D 40A to 65A Everlink contactors and TeSys GV3P Everlink manual motor protectors are a UL 508A Type F tested combination and comply with Type 2 Coordination standards.
