TeSys™ U Open Motor Starter

Refer to Catalog MKTED210011EN

TeSys™ U Motor Starter

The TeSys U motor starter is integrated, making it simple to choose and install. It consists of a control unit snapped in a power base. TeSys U can be configured to fit specific applications as well. Optional accessories include a reverser, a current limiter, predictive maintenance options, and communication options.
