Eaton has introduced the PowerXL DE1 Variable Speed Starter (VSS) into the North American and European markets. The device allows any panelbuilder or machine builder to simplify their design, increase energy efficiency, and reduce installation and commissioning time. Effortless, adjustable motor speed helps customers achieve the required energy efficiency levels while also simplifying commissioning. The DE1’s space saving design offers industry-leading ease of use. 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.
