For Group Motors

The need for individual short-circuit protective devices such as fuses is eliminated in group motor applications; this saves both installation expense and panel space. ABB Manual Motor Starters are UL listed and CSA approved for use in group installations of motors. Manual Motor starters provide motor protection and disconnect method in a fraction of the space required for traditional components

For Single Motor

ABB manual motor starters provide overload protection as required by Article 430 of the National Electrical Code. Control is provided by manual operation of the contacts; overload protection is provided by an adjustable bi-metallic trip mechanism.
