April 3, 2015 – Eaton releases PowerXL DE1 Variable Speed Starter that combines the ease of a motor starter with the versatility of a variable frequency drive, making it suitable for any situation where a variable motor speed is required but would be too complex..
The device allows any panelbuilder , machine builder or HVAC/R supplier to simplify their design, increase energy efficiency and reduce installation and commissioning time.
The VSS is equipped with standard application defaults creating minimal commissioning efforts and costs. As the VSS was designed without a keypad, there are other ways to configure the DE1 for the application if the defaults are not sufficient. The plug-in DXE-EXT-SET configuration model is an option for the user to adjust default settings of key parameters such as ramp time, motor protection and control terminal function using a screwdriver. The DE1 can connect with a remote mount keypad or with the drivesConnect PC Tool to allow the user to monitor and change additional parameter.
With the simplistic, cost effective and keypad-less design, the VSS is easy to install and should require no special knowledge of drives or engineering skills to commission. Eaton also offers intuitive accessories to increase user friendliness.
