Motor driven

HSM 1-phase and HTM 3-phase

METREL motor-operated units differ from manual types primarily in the means used to rotate the shaft to vary output voltage. A synchronous motor is used to position the slider. The motor is reversible by means of a SPDT switch (not supplied) and operates on 230 V, 50 / 400 Hz. Integrated limit switches prevent overriding the winding edges.

Typical methods for controlling METREL motor-operated units include:

  • Manual increase/decrease switch consists of either momentary-contact push-button or lever-type toggle switch.
  • Relays and contactors control the increase/decrease power to the motor as a result of low-level signals from external circuitry. Example: photoelectric cells or thermostat signals can provide the input.
  • Process control instrumentation can be used for closed-loop, precise control, and more sophisticated circuitry to provide the raise-fall switching for the motor.
