Superior safety with minimal effort
Published:  15 March, 2022

Large control cabinet space requirements, bulky cable trays, and complicated distributor box installation: When motors in conveyor systems are safely turned off in the traditional manner, the wiring and energy distribution involved is typically very complex. WIELAND ELECTRIC wanted to reduce the complexity in installation and make it more user friendly.

This motivation eventually led to the development of the motor starter podis MS 5HP. The extremely compact, robust, and user-friendly drive component includes an integrated STO (Safe Torque Off) function that, when activated, renders the connected motor torque-free and allows the power supply to be completely disconnected from the emergency stop circuits. As a result, STO circuits no longer need to be routed over long distances to a central distributor and assigned to a specific energy branch.
