The MS132-16 manual motor starter is a compact 45 mm width devices with a rated operational current of Ie = 16.0 A. Trip class 10 A. Further features are the build-in disconnect function, temperature compensation, trip-free mechanism and a rotary handle with a clear switch position indication The handle is lockable to protect against unauthorized changes Auxiliary contacts, signalling contacts, undervoltage releases, shunt trips, 3-phase bus bars, power in-feed blocks are available as accessory


For Manually Switch On And Off Motors And To Protect Them Reliably And Without The Need For A Fuse From Short-circuits, Overload And Phase Failures. Manual motor starters are electromechanical protection devices for the main circuit. They are used mainly to switch motors manually ON/OFF and protect them fuse less against short-circuit, overload and phase failures. Fuse less protection with a manual motor starter saves costs, space and ensures a quick reaction under shortcircuit condition, by switching off the motor within milliseconds. Fuse less starter combinations are setup together with contactors.
