Our world faces environmental challenges in many areas today, and companies around the world in many of those fields are rising to meet those demands. WEG is one of those companies.
Responsible environmental management is based on a commitment to practicing those preventive measures that can meet all of the environmental challenges our world currently faces. WEG focuses on the development of technologies that contribute to the sustainability of our planet and has developed its line of electric motors for electric drive systems to combine both efficiency and high-quality levels which contribute to that sustainability goal. This technology is being applied in many different sizes and types of vehicles, from golf carts to delivery trucks and even locomotives.
In addition to electric motors for these electric drive systems, WEG offers non-reversing and non-combination magnetic starters up to 75HP at 460Vac (105A) which are highly recommended for these very same electric motors and drive systems. The magnetic starters are ideal to protect and operate any electric motor, ensuring smooth and dependable operation year after year. They provide under voltage and overload protection, and an automatic cut off in the event of a power failure.
The starters are available in three series:
- Metallic Type 1 – ESW Series
- Non-Metallic Type 4X – PESW Series
- Metallic Type NEMA 7/9 – ESWX Series
WEG’s ESW and PESW starters are pre-wired from the factory and are recommended for all single- and three-phase applications where magnetic starters can be used. These starters feature components that meet all IEC design standards and UL horsepower ratings. Standard features are:
- High horsepower ratings in four compact sizes
- Fast acceleration and high initial torque
- Bimetallic Overload Relays – class 10
- Adjustable trip current
- Ambient temperature compensated
- Phase-loss sensitivity protection
- Selectable Manual or Automatic RESET
- Electrically isolated NO-NC auxiliary contacts
- Easy to install and setup
WEG is known for implementing a continual search for improvement in the creation of some of the most efficient and reliable products in energy-saving that are available on the global market today. Their commitment to research and development with a focus on sustainability has made products such as the enclosed magnetic starter available to the world.
