Eaton XT IEC Power Control Family | XT Series — Electronic Manual Motor Protectors and Electronic Motor Starters| Power Control 580 to 2600 A:
The XT ICE Series contactors use an electronic coil interface design that allows for flexibility in switching and greater reliability. These high-amperage contactors can be switched conventionally with full power to the coil, directly from a PLC output, or from a low-power command device. Low pickup and sealing power generates less heat and reduces the investment in control power transformers. The three switching tubes and electromechanical drive system of the XT 580–2600A contactors are arranged in an extremely compact design. This allows for smaller switchgear dimensions, while switching higher currents—up to 2600A.
The XT IEC series includes non-reversing and reversing contactors and starters as well as overload relays and accessories. Enclosed control options include metallic and non-metallic enclosures with circuit breakers, and North American or European fuses. The XT line of IEC motor control is not the same as traditional motor control designs. XT was designed to be engineered better.
Electronic coil controller allows contactors to reduce power consumption and generate less heat, resulting in lower cooling requirements, the ability to mount more contactors/starters per cabinet, and an extended life on pilot devices that carry control signals.
AC and DC devices with the same dimensions achieved with an electronically controlled coil system allow for space savings and reduced engineering design time.
Integrated suppressors in DC controlled contactors offers reductions in total logistics and inventory costs by limiting the number of products ordered and stocked.
Wiring is not required, therefore increasing installation and maintenance efficiency.
Expanded range of DC coil control voltages, allows reliable operation through fluctuations in control voltages.
Twin terminals with separate sockets in contactors up to 400A offer installation and application flexibility when using different size wires. The improved integrity of the connections reduces cabling faults.
