podis MS 5HP drive component

Sept. 13, 2022

Motors in conveyor systems need to be switched off safely, but the wiring and energy distribution involved is complex. Wieland Electric developed a motor starter designed to reduce the complexity of installation and improve the safety of conveyor systems. The podis MS 5HP is a compact, robust and user-friendly drive component with an integrated safe-torque-off (STO) function that disconnects the power supply from the emergency-stop circuits. The STO circuits need no routing through a central distributor and assignment to a specific energy branch, making the system less susceptible to interference.
