AutomationDirect® offers line of Fuji Electric motor controls

Cumming, GA --- November 15, 2003 --- AutomationDirect has partnered with Fuji Electric to offer a complete line of motor control products. The automation superstore will carry Fuji’s DUO series line of motor contactors, overload relays, and manual motor starters, as well as their Odyssey line of large contactors and overloads. The new offering will provide complete motor control solutions up to 300 horsepower.

The DUO line is fully integrated so multiple motor control solutions are possible with a minimum number of components. The SC-E series contactors work with either the conventional adjustable overloads or the new MMS to create starters for particular applications. Since the MMS is UL listed for Category E self-protected motor control, it can be used for motor branch circuit protection without the need for additional protection such as fuses or molded case circuit breakers. AutomationDirect will offer the MMS in a 32-amp version with a 45mm frame width and a 63-amp version with a 55mm frame width. Both MMS versions have high breaking capacities, up to 100,000 amps in some ranges. The MMS combination starters can accommodate motors up to 40 horsepower at 480 VAC. The conventional starters in the DUO line can accommodate motors up to 100 horsepower at 480VAC. The larger contactors feature the Super MagnetTM coil for greater reliability and positive pick-up and drop-out. Reversing kits are available for the SC-E series contactors. A complete line of accessories will also be available.

The Odyssey Series of contactors and overloads also feature the Super Magnet coil and come in sizes up to 300 horsepower at 480 VAC. The Odyssey Series contactors are available in four sizes with overloads to match any motor to 300 horsepower.

Both the DUO and Odyssey lines will be available in 24 VAC, 24 VDC, 120 VAC, and 240 VAC coil versions.
