This product is an Auto Start Unit with a motor protection system that safeguards the 3 Phase Motor against Overload, Dry Run, imbalance in currents and Single Phasing. This product has to be attached to the existing motor starter. It allows the motor load to pass through it. The current drawn in all the 3 lines are continuously monitored and displayed on the LCD. The low current and high current settings need to be adjusted by the user. The motor is turned OFF in case of over current, under current (dry run) and when any of the supply phases are absent thus protecting the motor from damages. The reason for the trip along with the tripping current is displayed on the LCD.
Maximum Current Range:
1 to 5HP : 20A
Connect the incoming supply lines R,Y and B respectively
Connect C1 and C2 across (in parallel to) the Start/ON Push Button of the starter
Connect C3 and C4 in series with the holding contact of the Contactor
Pass all the 3 load wires through the holes provided
The LCD powers up automatically when the supply is ON. The relay contacts C3 and C4 (normally open contacts) close when the load current is detected in all the 3 lines. C3 and C4 will remain closed till current in all the 3 lines is within the set limit. C3 and C4 open only during the faulty conditions or when the motor is switched off manually. The reason for the trip is displayed on the LCD. C1 and C2 (Normally open contacts) close for 5 seconds after the set power ON Delay if the Switch provided is in the ON position. The Auto Start functionality takes place during the arrival of the 3 Phase power supply.
Normally open Dry Relay Contacts C1, C2 and C3, C4
Wire Size to be used for L1, L2 and C1, C2 is a minimum of 0.5 sq. mm
Relay Closing time when currents are detected : 1 second
Overload - 12 seconds
Dry Run (Underload) - 8 seconds
Single Phasing - 2 Seconds
Unbalanced Current: 12 seconds
Minimum Holding Current: 1A
Weight: 1180 Grams
Length: 24.1 cms
Breadth: 11.2 cms
Height: 7.7 cms
Turn the Overload [H( )] [green knob] to maximum (clockwise)
Turn the Dry Run [L( )] [Blue knob] to minimum (anticlockwise)
Turn ON the motor and observe the load current in the second line of the LCD
Set the Overload H( ) value to 2 points more than the load current by rotating and observing the change in H( ) value in the first line of the LCD.
Set the Dry Run L( ) value to 2 points less than the load current by rotating and observing the change in L( ) value in the first line of the LCD.
Note: Set the L( ) value to minimum if the Dry Run Protection is not required.
Naren APT17 is used in all 3 Phase Submersible Starters as a protection mechanism to protect the motor against current and voltage irregularities. This device effectively switches OFF the motor in any irregularity and hence prevents burning of the motor windings. The reason for turning OFF is displayed on the LCD which makes the diagnosis easy. This device is rugged and is specifically designed for agricultural operations. The motor safeguarding devices like these are very critical which will save the users from the costs incurred due to motor failures.
