Danfoss's New Decentral Motor Switch is Ideal Soft Start/Stop Solution When no Variable Speed is Required

LOVES PARK, IL -- Danfoss Drives introduces the DMS 300 Decentral Motor Switch. The DMS 300 is the right choice for soft starting and stopping of the motor in either direction when no variable speed control is required. The DMS 300 can be mounted on the wall or directly to the motor, and is compatible with a number of motor brands. A rugged painted surface and IP66/NEMA 4X enclosure provide a cleaning-friendly design ideal for food and beverage applications. The DMS 300 also provides advantages over traditional soft starter packages for automotive, distribution/warehousing, freight & parcel, and baggage handling applications. They are available with a power range to 4HP, 3 phase 380-480 VAC.

The DMS 300 incorporates a dual part principle that facilitates fast and reliable commissioning and service. The DMS 300 also supplies and controls the motor’s electromechanical brake. The motor and cabling are protected by either a thermistor or by the built-in over-current surveillance. Integrated Fieldbus interfaces, including Profibus, DeviceNet, and AS-Interface, are optional.

Decentralized motion control meets the ever-growing demands for maximum installation flexibility, and reduced lead-time and commissioning of industrial machinery. Decentralization lowers installation costs, makes cabinet space requirements nearly obsolete, and significantly reduces cabling expenses. It also facilitates quick and easy service, retrofitting and upgrading. Additional features include improved utilization of narrow space and easy reconfiguration of production flow.

Danfoss Drives is a leading producer of precision mechanical and electrical components and intelligent “mechatronic” devices. Danfoss Drives created the VLTÒ name when they introduced the world’s first mass-produced Adjustable Frequency Drives in 1968, and the name has set the standard for quality drives ever since.
