Manual Motor Starter Protector
Type 3VU13 Manual Motor Starter
Protector
Siemens 3VU13 is a 3-phase manual
starter providing adjustable overload
protection, optional field installed undervoltage protection, and short circuit
protection.
Features
쐍 Built-in Short Circuit Protection. Short
circuit protection provided by the
usual branch circuit protection device
feeding a manual starter (fuse or circuit breaker in accordance with NEC
430-52) may not protect a common
manual starter. The factory built-in
instantaneous trip of the Motor Starter
Protector will protect the starter as
well as the cable and motor during
low level faults.
쐍 The Manual Starters Meet or Exceed
Requirements of NEMA, EEMAC, UL,
CSA, IEC, VDE and Other International
Standards. The built-in instantaneous
magnetic trip (similar to a circuit
breaker with arc chamber) provides
self protection against low-level short
circuits.
쐍 Motor Ratings — Up to 25 HP 3Phase and 10 HP Single Phase.
쐍 Class 10 Adjustable Ambient
Compensated Overload Protection.
쐍 Phase Loss Sensitivity.
쐍 Undervoltage Protection — UV trip
module may be added in field.
쐍 Shunt Trip Module is also field addable.
쐍 Available in Open Styles, NEMA 1 and
3R, watertight, dusttight, under table,
and flush mount enclosures.
쐍 1 NO and 1 NC Auxiliary Contacts
Standard.
쐍 Group Installation - UL 508.
The 3VU13 is suitable for Group
Installation at 5kA 600 volts maximum
with any fuse up to 1200 amperes or
any inverse time circuit breaker up to
1200 amperes. The 3VU13 can be
installed with or without Siemens contactors type 3TF2 or 3TF30 to 3TF34
in series. For higher interrupting ratings, consult Siemens.

Manual Motor Starters and Contactors
General / Wiring Diagrams
Application
Across the line manual motor starters
and contactors provide control for
machinery where start stop remote control is not required (optional remote stop
available). Class 11 manual starters are
used for single and polyphase motors up
to 10 Hp. Starters have melting alloy
overload relays which help protect
against damage due to excessive current
caused by a sustained overload, low line
voltage, or single phasing of the motor.
Contactors provide control for inherently
protected motors. Typical applications
include metal and wood-working machinery, grinders, power saws, conveyors,
fans pumps, blowers, textile and packaging machinery, slitters, and paper cutters.
Features
Class 11 manual controllers have front
accessible pressure type wire connectors. Ample wiring space is provided for
easy wiring.
A complete line of general purpose and
industrial duty enclosures is available as
well as open type mounting for custom
built enclosures. These manual controllers are available with low voltage protection which will automatically open the
power poles when the voltage drops or
the power is interrupted. A remote stop
function may be incorporated with the
low voltage protection coil as a factory
option to provide remote or semi-automatic operation.
Class 11 controllers provide the OSHA
requirements for protecting personnel
from potential injury caused by the automatic start up of machinery following a
voltage drop or power interruption when
low voltage protection is specified.
Open styles and devices in NEMA 1, 4, 7
& 9, 12 enclosures can be padlocked in
the OFF position.

Magnetic Contactors
Applications
Class 40 industrial magnetic contactors
are designed for electrical loads such as
heating, lighting, transformer and capacitor switching, and AC motor starting.
They control motors already protected by
inherent or other types of overload
devices. Used with appropriate pilot control, a contactor provides a choice of
undervoltage protection or release.
Class 40 contactors Size 0 thru 6 feature
carefully wound coils encapsulated to
seal out moisture. Encapsulation also promotes heat transfer and resists electrical,
mechanical, and thermal stresses.
Features
Horsepower rated contactors are available in NEMA sizes 00 through 6, plus
four Siemens Furnas Half Sizes: 13 ⁄4, 21⁄2,
31⁄2, and 41⁄2. These contactors are available as an open type or in NEMA 1, 3, 4,
4X, 7 & 9, or 12 enclosures. These contactors can also be used on capacitor and
transformer switching applications.
Resistance heating contactors are available in 11 sizes from 10 through 350
amperes in 2- and 3-pole models and in 4
sizes in 4-pole models.
Lighting contactors are available in 11
sizes from 20 through 600 amperes in 2and 3-pole models and in 3 sizes in 4pole models. Lighting contactors are
especially designed to switch ballast
type, tungsten, and other discharge type
lighting loads. These contactors may be
controlled by timers and other pilot
devices.
These contactors are also available with a
DC coil and rectifier for reduction of AC
hum in noise-sensitive areas such as hospitals, schools, and similar locations.
For information and availability of
mechanically held lighting contactors,
contact your local sales office.

Description
AC lighting contactors provide a safe convenient means of local or remote switching of relatively large tungsten, fluorescent or mercury arc lamp loads.
Siemens AC lighting contactors are
designed to withstand the large initial
inrush currents of tungsten lamp loads
without the contacts welding. They are
fully rated contactors and do not require
any derating as do standard motor control contactors. They are UL Listed and
CSA Certified.
Combination lighting contactors are well
suited for industrial, highway and area
lighting applications, or where a lighting
circuit may have to be disconnected for
periodic maintenance. They may also be
used for resistance heating loads.
CLH Lighting Contactors
Class CLH electrically-held lighting contactors provide a safe convenient means
of local or remote switching for tungsten
and ballast lamp loads, mercury arc
lamps, 3 phase resistive heating, 480
volts line to line, 277 volts line to neutral.
Available in 20 ampere through 400
ampere sizes in NEMA Type 1, 3R / 12, 4
stainless steel, 4X non-metallic type
enclosures and open type. The CLH contactors are available in 2–12 pole 20
ampere, 3–12 pole 30 and 60 ampere
and 3 pole in 100–400 ampere sizes. UL
Listed and CSA certified.
Table 15.24
CLH Lighting Contactors
Magnetic Latch Operation
A permanent magnet is built into the contactor structure of the 30,60,100, and
200 ampere contactors that will maintain
the contactor in its energized state indefinitely without using control power. When
energized, a DC current is applied that
produces a magnetic field that reinforces
the polarity of the permanent magnet,
and the contactor pulls in immediately.
The current to the coil is disconnected by
the coil clearing interlock. In order to drop
out the contactor it is necessary to apply
a field through the OFF coil in the reverse
direction to the permanent magnet. This
momentarily cancels the magnetic attraction and the contactor drops out.
Cu / AI terminals are provided as standard except on 30 ampere devices which
are for copper wire only.

Combination Lighting Contactors
It is desirable to install the branch circuit
protective device and lighting contactor,
combining switching and over-current
protection, in one enclosure.

CLM Lighting Contactors
The CLM Lighting Contactors can be
used with metal halide, mercury vapor,
quartz halogen, tungsten, and fluorescent
lighting. They provide reliable and convenient lighting control in numerous applications, such as industrial plants, schools,
hospitals, office buildings, shopping centers, airports, stadiums, etc. The CLM’s
are listed under UL 508 with no derating
when used open or enclosed. Optional
solid-state control modules are available
to allow control of the CLM lighting contactors directly from energy management
systems, microprocessors, photoelectric
cells, timers, and similar control devices.
They permit programmable time scheduling of loads, automatic control of lighting
near windows to allow the use of natural
ambient lighting levels, and manual override of all lighting circuits from any number of local control stations or from a
central location. These optional modules
are integrally mounted onto the base of
the lighting contactor.

Combination Starter With ETI
Circuit Breaker
The Type ETI circuit breaker, sometimes
called a Motor Circuit Interrupter, is
a device designed specifically for application in motor circuits. The ETI is a
magnetic only protective device designed
to provide protection against short
circuit current.
The instantaneous-only type ETI circuit
breaker employs adjustable magnetic
trip settings to allow broader application
ranges and a higher degree of motor
short circuit protection.

Type MCS Disconnect Switches
Type MCS Disconnect Switches feature
a quick-make, quick-break mechanism to
insure proper switch operation. With a
high fault withstand rating of 100 kA at
480 volts ac, when fused with Class R
rated size fuses, MCS switches meet
stringent industry standards set forth by
the automotive, petro-chemical, and pulp
and paper industries.
With visible blade contacts for ease of
inspection, removable line shields, and
front removable fuse clips and lugs,
disconnect switches are UL recognized
and CSA certified. They are available with
Class H, J, and R fuse kits for a wide
range of fused, non-fused, and overfusing options.

These controls are available in NEMA
sizes 00 through 6. ESP100 starters are
available in NEMA sizes 0 through 6. In
addition to the usual NEMA starter sizes,
four exclusive Half Sizes—1 3 ⁄4, 2 1⁄2, 3 1⁄2,
and 4 1⁄2—are offered. These integral
sizes offer the same rugged, industrial
construction as NEMA sizes, and ensure
efficient operating performance. Half
Sizes provide a real cost savings by cutting down on over capacity when NEMA
sizes exceed the motor ratings.
Across the line or full voltage starting is
used when motor starting torque can be
applied safely and current inrush does
not produce an objectional voltage drop.
All starters are supplied with a NO holding contact that in conjunction with an
appropriate pilot device will provide low
voltage protection or release.
쐍
Application
Class 14 industrial magnetic starters are
designed for across-the-line starting of
single-phase and polyphase motors.
ESP100 starters combine the rugged
characteristics of a NEMA rated contactor with a solid state overload which
provides phase loss protection. It offers
the industrial user greater protection
and added life for motors in heavy duty
applications. The inherent benefits of the
ESP100 result in cost savings as well.
Starter with thermal overload relays
(together with the proper heater elements) help provide protection to motor
windings from harmful currents and the
resultant temperature rise that may be
caused by overloading the motor, sustained low line voltage, or stalled rotor.
Features
Size 0–6 Magnetic Starters include the
following standard features:
Molded Coil — Magnetic coils are carefully wound and then sealed in epoxy.
Encapsulation helps seal out moisture,
promotes heat transfer, and resists electrical, mechanical, and thermal stresses.
Dual Voltage / Dual Frequency Coil —
Starters are available with dual voltage,
dual frequency coils. They are designed
to operate on either 50 or 60 Hertz.
ESP100 Solid State Overload Relays —
These standard features of the ESP100
provide Extra Starter Performance.
쐍 True phase loss protection; trips
within 3 seconds.
쐍 High accuracy trip curves; ± 2%
repeat trip accuracy.
쐍 Ease of use. Mount, wire and set
FLA.
쐍 Overload is self protected against
short circuits.
쐍
쐍
쐍
쐍
Starters
Overload is self powered and
requires no hard wiring or separate
power source.
Simple, versatile adjustment;
over a 2:1 FLA adjustment range.
Extendable to 4:1 with looping
option.
Heaterless construction minimizes
energy costs and the costs of cabinet
ventilation or cooling.
Class 20 protection is standard. Class
10 and 30 protection are available.
Provides motor protection to
50 / 60 Hertz.
Thermal Overload Relays — Melting
alloy is supplied as standard; optional
bimetal overload relay is available.
Ambient compensated bimetal version is
also available. Bimetal types are convertible from manual to automatic reset and
can be furnished with standard or quick
trip heater elements. Melting alloy overloads include a trip indicator and manual
test feature. An isolated normally open or
normally closed contact is available for
use on melting alloy overloads. Bimetal
overloads are also available with NC and
NO (SPDT) Form C contacts.

Auxiliary Equipment
쐍 Starters are available with built-in
START / STOP pushbuttons for 3-wire
control or a HAND / OFF / AUTO
selector switch for 2-wire control.
쐍 Field modifications such as auxiliary
electrical contacts, pilot lights, pushbuttons, selector switches, and fuse
blocks for low voltage pilot control
are available to meet specific application requirements.
쐍 Normally open or normally closed
fifth power pole kits are available for
sizes 0 through 1 3 ⁄4.
쐍 Transformers and pneumatic timers
can be ordered as either factory or
field modifications. In some cases
these may require a larger enclosure.
쐍 A full line of replacement parts are
available including contact kits, coils,
overload relays, and heater elements.
Size 0 through 4
The following features are characteristics
of Sizes 0 through 4.
Gravity Dropout — For added reliability,
the gravity dropout of the armature and
contacts is assisted by stainless steel
springs which help provide quick, precise
opening of the contacts. Also provides
straight through wiring.
45 Degree, Wedge Action — The 45
degree, wedge action contacts reduce
tracking and provide faster arc quenching. The resulting self cleaning and
reduced contact bounce mean cooler
operation and longer life for the large
silver cadmium oxide contacts.
Terminal Design — Control terminals
are self rising pressure type.
Auxiliary Contacts — Front mounted as
well as side mounted auxiliary contacts
are available. A maximum of four can be
mounted on sizes 0 through 1 3 ⁄4, three
on Sizes 2 through 6.

Overload Protection
Siemens solid-state overload relay protection is provided standard for starter sizes
6 through 8. Improvements in motor
designs and manufacturing capabilities
have resulted in decreasing physical
motor size to obtain the same horsepower, making them more sensitive to
overloads. Previous motors had a higher
tolerance for overloads and made application of electromechanical overload relays
satisfactory for protection. The bigger the
motor, the more there is riding on marginal protection and high rewind costs.

Multi-Speed Starters (NEMA Sizes 0–4)
Full-voltage AC magnetic multi-speed
controllers are designed to control reconnectable squirrel-cage induction motors
for operation at two, three or four different constant speeds depending on the
construction of the motor. These controllers are available in combination and
non-combination types.
The speed of an induction motor is a
function of the supply frequency and the
number of poles of the motor winding. To
obtain different speeds with a fixed supply frequency, the number of magnetic
poles of the motor must be changed.
Characteristics at any speed are similar to
those of a single-speed motor. There are
two basic methods for providing multiple
combinations:
쐍 Separate-Winding Motors have a
separate winding for each speed.
This motor construction is relatively
simple, and a wide variety of speeds
can be selected. Separate winding
motors with delta connected motor
windings require one corner to be
opened on each unused winding.
쐍 Consequent-Pole Motors have a
single winding for two speeds. Extra
winding taps are brought out for
reconnection for different numbers of
stator poles. The controller is more
complicated, and speed range is limited to a 2-to-1 ratio.
Two-speed consequent-pole motors have
one reconnectable winding. Three-speed
motors have two windings, one of which
is reconnectable. Four-speed motors
have two reconnectable windings. Each
unused delta connected winding must
have one corner open.
Torque Characteristics
Multi-speed motors are divided into three
application groups:
쐍 Constant Torque: HP output varies
directly with speed, while torque
remains constant. A constant torque
motor rated 100 HP at 1200 rpm
delivers 50 HP at 600 rpm. This type
is applicable to conveyors, mills,
dough mixers, reciprocating pumps,
and other similar loads.
쐍 Variable Torque: HP varies as square
of speed, while torque varies directly
with speed. A variable-torque motor
rated 100 HP at 1200 rpm delivers 25
HP at 600 rpm. This type is applicable
to drives having fan or centrifugal
pump characteristics.
쐍 Constant Horsepower: Motor delivers rated HP at all full-load speeds,
while torque varies inversely as
speed. This type is applicable to
cutting tools, lathes, spindles, etc.

Reduced Voltage Starters — Electromechanical
General
Auto Transformer Starter
Wye Delta Starter
Part Winding Starter
Operation
At starting, the auto transformer reduces
motor terminal voltage to 50, 65, or 80
percent of line voltage. For a timed interval, a segment of the transformer coil is
connected in series (as an inductor) with
the motor. Then a contactor automatically
connects the motor across the line and
shorts out the inductor.
Operation
Initially the starter connects the motor
on a Wye connection, reducing voltage
across the winding to approximately
58 percent. Starting torque and current
is about 33 percent of across the line.
After a time delay the motor is
connected Delta.
Operation
Part winding starters apply starting
current in timed steps to part winding
motors. Two step controllers apply voltage through one starter to one motor
winding followed by the second starter
which connects voltage to the second
winding. The timer may be adjusted to
automatically close the second controller
at the most favorable time to minimize
voltage fluctuations.

Solid-State Reduced Voltage Starters
Operation
The solid state motor controller uses silicon controlled rectifiers (SCR’s) to control
the voltage to the motor windings. Each
SCR acts as a switch that can be turned
on with any electronic trigger signal at
any point on the voltage waveform and
turns off when the current waveform
crosses zero. Two SCR’s are used in a
back-to-back arrangement in each phase
to allow alternating current to pass to
the motor.
General
Shorted SCR햲
If one or more shorted SCRs are detected, the starter will not energize. A fault
LED will light and if provided with a
shunt trip, the main circuit breaker will
trip.
Pump Stop햲
This option eliminates water hammer in
pumping systems, by giving a controlled
decel to the motor voltage. This process
allows for smooth pressure reduction
and quiet check valve operation.
Phase Loss
The controller will trip off the line if one
or more phases is lost.
Class 70 / 71
Siemens-Furnas Class 70 / 71 combines
Digital Signal Processor control and silicon controlled rectifier (SCR) technologies to provide optimum AC induction
motor starting and operation. It provides
soft start, energy savings,* soft stop,*
and added protective features.
The basic controller consists of electronic
circuit boards linked via flat cable connectors. The main functions of the basic
assembly are to monitor the operating
parameters of the controller and to control the firing sequence of the SCR’s.
The power module located below the
basic controller controls power to the
motor. The incoming and motor load
connections are made to terminal blocks
located on the top and bottom of the
power module.
The starters are available either as NEMA
Type 1, 12, or 4 enclosures. Units are
supplied with solid-state overload relays
as complete starters, or as combination
starters with fusible, non-fusible disconnect, or thermal magnetic circuit breakers
with or without shunt trip features.
Additional options are also available.
The Class 70 / 71 is designed to operate
3 phase AC induction motors at 208 to
575 volts and 6.1 to 960 amperes at 50
or 60 Hertz.
3-Phase Control Configuration
When SCR triggering is delayed, the voltage to the load is reduced. This phasecontrolled operation provides soft starting
with stepless acceleration. Once the
motor is running, voltage reduction can
improve the motor’s operating point at
partial load, saving energy and lowering
the reactive current.

Pilot Device Units
Pilot Device Units and
Indicator Lights — Type 3SBO
Pilot Device Options
3SBO pilot devices are built by Siemens in
two basic forms - 1) as assembled for the
most frequently used configurations, or 2)
as subassemblies for greater flexibility.
Application
3SB0 devices are heavy duty oiltight,
watertight, and dusttight (NEMA Type 4,
4X, 13, IP65). They are used in industrial
control circuits at 600V or less. 3SBO
pilot devices are available in two diameters, 7/8” and 1-13/64” (22 and 30 mm).
7/8” (22 mm) Mounting
The operator is inserted into the hole in
the panel from the front and twisted into
the contact block holder. The unit is then
fixed from behind by means of two set
screws which are located in the contact
block holder, preventing the unit from
working loose or twisting.
1-13/64” (30 mm) Mounting
The holder is an integral part of the actuator, it is inserted into the hole in the
panel from the rear and secured from the
front by means of a front ring. With the
use of a legend plate or the thrust and
trim washers, the unit becomes stationary and will not twist or work loose.
General
Front Rings
Both units are supplied as standard with
metal chrome plated front rings. Black
plastic or anodized aluminum rings are
optional at no additional cost. The plastic
rings are recommended for use where
the atmosphere may be corrosive.
LED Indicating Lights (Optional)
Since LED’s consume less power, their
life is 10 to 20 times that of conventional
incandescent lamps. They also provide
greater resistance to shock and vibration.
Where lamp integrity and low maintenance is crucial, the 3SB0 LED indicator
is recommended.
Contact Blocks
One line of contact blocks fits both size
devices. All have parallel double break
contacts with wiping action and reliability
nibs to insure long, maintenance-free
Pushbutton Unit
7/8” (22 mm) Mounting
operation. The design is also well suited
to low energy circuits common on programmable controller interfaces. Blocks
snap side by side on the holder and lock
in place. The contact block holder is available in 3 and 5 position versions, eliminating the need for piggyback contacts
which are hard to wire and prone to failure. Terminals meet the “touchsafe”
requirements of IEC standards and are
clearly marked.
Wire funnels, screwdriver guides, and
captive terminal screws make the contacts easy to wire while self lifting spring
washers insure that the wire stays
secure under severe vibration.
Special contact blocks are available for
solder connection to printed circuit
boards. When used with the special
operator adaptor, they present a unique
solution to multiple button operator
panels.
