Two new, EN 60947 compliant, manual motor starters from Chint have been launched by Rowe Hankins Components. They are ideal for use with three phase cage asynchronous motors and are suitable for rail mounting in cabinets or clean environments. An impact resistant, ABS, IP55 rated enclosure is available for protection from the hazards of normal industrial use. This is available with the starter or as a separate item.

Two models are available. The NS2-25 is rated from 0.16 to 25 Amps, while the NS2-80 meets needs from 25 to 80 Amps. Both models have key safety features including overload and short circuit protection. Phase failure is integral to the design and a convenient test switch is located on the front of the starters. There is also a facility to padlock in the off position if required.

The starter is designed for ease of installation and wiring. A coloured tab warns when the starter is not locked in place. Pre moulded cut outs in the IP55 enclosure allow for wire access from above, below, sides or back.

Nation-wide distribution is via mainstream electrical wholesalers including CEF, C&S distributors, Range Electrical and Unilec Supply. The NS2 motor starter is just one of a family of electrical components from Chint, manufactured to world-class standards and imported exclusively by Rowe Hankins. All Chint products deliver high performance and reliability with competitive pricing.
