Enclosed Star Delta Starter Trip Class
The MCW Enclosed star delta starters are fitted with a Trip Class 10 thermal overload relay as standard which is suitable for the majority of light to medium industrial type load applications. As an option the soft start can be converted to Trip class 20 (medium to heavy industrial loads) at time of purchase. This may involve a larger star delta starter contactor arrangement, a trip class 20 thermal overload and a larger MCB/MCCB. Please note on some models when upgrading to trip class 20 the enclosure size may increase.
The MCW Enclosed star delta starter range are not suitable for applications that have a very heavy load on start that takes greater than 20s to start or very high inertia loads such as high inertia fans, centrifuges or loaded crushers.
Starting the MCW Enclosed star delta starter more than once every 10 minutes will alter the thermal overload tripping characteristics making the overload trip more quickly for a given thermal overload current setting.
