Manual Motor Starters

Electric Motor Control using Fuji Manual Motor Starters


Manual Motor Starter Advantages
The BM3 Series manual motor starters (MMS) provide optimal protection by integrating the functions of a molded case circuit breaker (MCCB) and thermal overload relay into a highly compact unit. The BM3 Series manual motor starters (MMS) provide magnetic short circuit protection. This short circuit trip rating is approximately 13 times the FLA rating of the overload function.
We offer compact motor starters with a 55mm width for rated currents to 63A and motor capacities to 30kw (40Hp) at 480 VAC.

Thermal overload relay plus: - Phase-loss protection - Rated current adjustment - Ambient temperature compensation
Compact Mounting Space) - MCCB + Thermal overload relay: 100% - MMS: 43% (57% reduction)
Considerable space is required to install a back-up circuit breaker or a combination starter consisting of a circuit breaker and a thermal overload relay. As a result, the panel size has to be increased..The compact size of the MMS, including thermal overload relay functions, enables a smaller installation area with less wiring space, for a reduction in panel size.
High breaking capacity

Manual Motor Starter Applications

When numerous small and medium motor loads exist in a circuit requiring high breaking capacity, there is no high-breaking capacity circuit breaker with a small rated current for short-circuit protection.
The manual motor starter can be used in 100 kA short-circuit current circuits for three-phase, 240 V motors with rated capacity up to 15 kW, and in 50 kA short-circuit current circuits for three-phase, 415 V motors with rated capacity up to 30 kW.
When a back-up molded case circuit breaker (MCCB) is installed upstream to solve the problem described in "short-circuit breaking protection" above, a short in one of the load circuits also trips the upstream breaker and stops the other operating load circuits.
Despite their compact size, the 32AF and 63AF MMS provide high-performance short-circuit current breaking. They eliminate the need for an upstream circuit breaker for back-up use.
