Motorpact™ Medium Voltage Motor Controllers (UL Listed)
Square D™ brand Motorpact medium voltage motor controllers from Schneider Electric are designed and manufactured to tackle the toughest power and process control challenges. Our motor controllers feature industry-first innovations that provide unmatched performance, high reliability, low maintenance and exclusive technologies. Motorpact medium voltage motor controllers are designed to provide the most efficient means to control and protect a wide range of applications and may be configured for motor starting, transformer feeders, capacitor feeders, or future spaces. The design has fewer losses inside the controller, providing more efficient use of power for the connected load.
Motorpact controllers are designed to meet or exceed the standards for NEMA ICS3 Part 2, UL Standard 347, and IEC 60470. UL and cULus labels are standard.
Starting application for squirrel cage induction motors:
Full voltage non-reversing
Full voltage reversing
2-speed, 2-winding, 2-speed, 1-winding
Reduced voltage non-reversing
Solid state soft start
Sequential soft start (S3) multi-motor starting
Enclosures are available in NEMA Type 1, 1A, and 3R and feature the smallest footprint in the industry at 14.75 inches wide. Enclosures that are 20 inches and 29.5 inches wide are also available for FVNR.
Optional arc resistant enclosures are available that meet IEEE C37.20.7.
Units are designed as one-high construction for ease of use with a optimum height for the operator controls and isolation switch disconnect handle.
Full front and or front and rear accessibility are provided. A full height cable pulling area is standard.
Controller voltage ratings range from 2.3–7.2 kV vacuum contactors feature a drawout design and have ratings of 200, 400, 450, and 720 A.
Options include live line indicators, blown fuse tripping, solid state protective relays, power factor correction capacitors, surge arresters, surge capacitors and a cable grounding switch.
