Control solution for motors from 2.3kV up to 13.8kV, up to 600A

June 29, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Devon based manufacturer Fairford Electronics has launched Centris, a medium voltage motor control solution designed for motors ranging from 2.3kV up to 13.8kV, available for motor sizes up to 600A.

This medium voltage motor controller can work within any medium voltage application which runs at a fixed speed. The product provides superior power control and allows maximum protection with “true thermal modelling,” by enabling smooth, steeples control of acceleration and deceleration. The controler features an advanced motor protection relay and a programmable ramp via a keypad or a laptop computer. For operation safety, the low voltage compartment is optically isolated up to 110kV BIL rating. The unit comes with a load-break / fault-make rated disconnect switch with door safety interlocking. The controler is available with the RTD Option to accept up to 12 RTD inputs. It ships in a NEMA 12 gasketed enclosure (NEMA 3R optional).
