MCD 500 Operating Instruction
4 Electrical Installation
4.1 Electrical Installation
4.1.1 Control Wiring
The soft starter can be controlled in three ways:
•
•
•
using the buttons on the LCP
via remote inputs
via a serial communication link
The MCD 500 will always respond to a local start or stop command (via the Hand On and Off buttons on the LCP). Pressing the
Auto On button selects remote control (the MCD 500 will accept commands from the remote inputs). In remote mode, the Auto
On LED will be on. In local mode, the Hand On LED will be on if the MCD 500 is starting or running and the Off LED will be on if
the MCD 500 is stopped or stopping.
4.1.2 Control Terminals
Control terminations use 2.5 mm2 plug-in terminal blocks. Different models require control voltage to different terminals:
CV1 (24 VAC/VDC)
CV2 (110 - 120 VAC)
CV2 (220 - 240 VAC)
A5, A6
A5, A6
A4, A6
NOTE
NOTE
If you are not using a thermistor, do not short terminals 05,
06.
SELV offers protection by way of extra low voltage.
Protection against electric shock is ensured when the
electrical supply is of the SELV type and the installation is
made as described in local/national regulations on SELV
supplies.
All control terminals and relay terminals comply with SELV
(Protective Extra Low Voltage). This protection does not
apply to grounded Delta leg above 400V.
NOTE
To maintain SELV, all connections made to the control
terminals must be PELV (eg. thermistor must be reinforced/
double insulated from motor).
10
Galvanic (ensured) isolation is obtained by fulfilling
requirements for higher isolation and by providing the
relevant creepages/clearance distances. These requirements
are described in the IEC61140 standard.
The components that make up the electrical isolation also
comply with the requirements for higher isolation and the
relevant test as described in IEC61140.

Earth terminals are located at the back of the soft starter.
•
MCD5-0021B - MCD5-0105B have one terminal, on
the input side.
•
MCD5-0131B - MCD5-1600C have two terminals,
one on the input side and one on the output side.

4.1.6 Power Terminations
Use only copper stranded or solid conductors, rated for 75r C.
NOTE
Some units are aluminium bus bars. When connecting power
terminations, we recommend cleaning the surface contact
area thoroughly (using an emery or stainless steel brush) and
using an appropriate jointing compound to prevent
corrosion.

NOTE
4.1.7 Motor Connection
MCD 500 soft starters can be connected to the motor in-line
or inside delta (also called three-wire and six-wire
connection). The MCD 500 will automatically detect the
motor connection and perform the necessary calculations
internally, so it is only necessary to program the motor full
load current (par. 1-1).
For personnel safety, the power terminals on models up to
MCD5-0105B are protected by snap-off tabs. When using
large cables, it may be necessary to break off these tabs.
Models which are internally bypassed do not require an
external bypass contactor.

4.3.3 Inside Delta Installation, Externally Bypassed
Non-bypassed models have dedicated bypass terminals, which allow the MCD 500 to continue providing protection and
monitoring functions even when bypassed via an external bypass contactor. The bypass relay must be connected to the bypass
terminals and controlled by a programmable output configured to Run (see par. 4-1 - 4-9).

4.6 Bypass Contactor
MCD 500 soft starters with model numbers MCD5-0021B - MCD5-0215B are internally bypassed and do not require an external
bypass contactor.
MCD 500 soft starters with model numbers MCD5-0245C - MCD5-1600C are not internally bypassed and may be installed with
an external bypass contactor. Select a contactor with an AC1 rating greater than or equal to the full load current rating of the
connected motor.
4.7 Main Contactor
A main contactor must be installed if the MCD 500 is connected to the motor in inside delta format and is optional for in-line
connection. Select a contactor with an AC3 rating greater than or equal to the full load current rating of the connected motor.
4.8 Circuit Breaker
A shunt trip circuit breaker may be used instead of a main contactor to isolate the motor circuit in the event of a soft starter trip.
The shunt trip mechanism must be powered from the supply side of the circuit breaker or from a separate control supply.
4.9 Power Factor Correction
If power factor correction is used, a dedicated contactor should be used to switch in the capacitors. Power factor correction
capacitors must be connected to the input side of the soft starter.

4 4
Electrical Installation
MCD 500 Operating Instruction
CAUTION
Power factor correction capacitors must be connected to the
input side of the soft starter. Connecting power factor
correction capacitors to the output side will damage the soft
starter.
4.10 Fuses
4.10.1 Power Supply Fuses
Semiconductor fuses can be used for Type 2 coordination
(according to IEC 60947-4-2 standard) and to reduce the risk
of damage to SCRs from transient overload currents.
HRC fuses (such as Ferraz AJT fuses) can be used for Type 1
coordination according to IEC 60947-4-2 standard.
NOTE
Adaptive Acceleration Control (AAC) controls the motor's
speed profile, within the programmed time limit. This may
result in a higher level of current than traditional control
methods.
For applications using Adaptive Acceleration Control to soft
stop the motor with stop times greater than 30 seconds,
motor branch protection should be selected as follows:
22
•
Standard HRC line fuses: Minimum 150% motor full
load current
•
Motor rated line fuses: Minimum rating 100/150%
motor full load current
•
Motor control circuit breaker minimum long time
setting: 150% motor full load current
•
Motor control circuit breaker minimum short time
setting: 400% motor full load current for 30
seconds
Fuses recommendations are calculated for 40r C, up to 1000
m.
NOTE
Fuse selection is based on a 400% FLC start for 20 seconds in
conjunction with standard published starts per hour, duty
cycle, 40r C ambient temperature and up to 1000 m altitude.
For installations operating outside these conditions, consult
your local supplier.
NOTE
These fuse tables contain recommendations only, always
consult your local supplier to confirm the selection for your
particular application.
For models marked - there is no suitable fuse.

5 Application Examples
•
The memory function of the model means that the
motor is fully protected in “warm start” situations.
The model uses data from the real time clock to
account for elapsed cooling time, even if control
power has been removed.
5.1 Motor Overload Protection
The thermal model used for motor overload in the MCD 500
has two components:
Motor Body: This has a large thermal capacity and
affects the long term behaviour of the motor. The
thermal model includes considerations for the
following:
•
Motor current, iron losses, winding
resistance losses, motor body and
winding thermal capacities, cooling
during run and cooling at standstill.
•
The percentage of the rated capacity of
the motor. This sets the displayed value
for the winding model and is affected by
the motor FLC setting amongst others.
NOTE
Par. 1-1 Motor FLC should be set to the motor's rated FLC. Do
not add the overload rating as this is computed by the
MCD500.
177HA596.10
•
Motor windings: These have a low thermal capacity
and affects the short term thermal behaviour of the
motor. This is where the heat is generated by the
current.

Time in seconds to reach 100% of thermal model
•
The overload protection function provided by this model is
compliant with a NEMA 10 curve, but will provide superior
protection at low levels of overload due to the separation of
the winding thermal model.

The thermal overload protection used in MCD500 has a
number of advantages over the thermal relays.
•
The effect of fan cooling is accounted for when the
motor is running
•
The actual full load current and locked rotor time
can be used to more accurately tune the model.
The thermal characteristics of the windings are
treated separately from the rest of the motor (ie.
the model recognises that the windings have low
thermal mass and high thermal resistance).
•
•
The winding portion of the thermal model
responds very rapidly compared with the body
portion, meaning the motor can be run closer to its
safe maximum operating temperature while still
being protected from thermal damage.
The percentage of motor thermal capacity used
during each start is stored in memory. The starter
can be configured to automatically determine
whether or not the motor has sufficient thermal
capacity remaining to successfully complete
another start.

MSTC is the Motor Start Time Constant and is defined as the
Locked Rotor Time (par. 1-2) when the Locked Rotor Current
is 600% of FLC.
5.2 AAC Adaptive Acceleration Control
AAC Adaptive Acceleration Control is a new form of motor
control based on the motor's own performance characteristics. With AAC, the user selects the starting or stopping
profile that best matches the load type and the starter
automatically controls the motor to match the profile. The
MCD 500 offers three profiles - early, constant and late
acceleration and deceleration.
AAC uses two algorithms, one to measure the motor's
characteristics and one to control the motor. The MCD 500
uses the first start to determine the motor's characteristics at

zero speed and at maximum speed. During each subsequent
start and stop, the starter dynamically adjusts its control to
ensure the motor's actual performance matches the selected
profile throughout the start. The starter increases power to
the motor if the actual speed is too low for the profile, or
decreases power if the speed is too high.

slowly).

the electricity supply is limited (for example a
generator set), and a slower application of load will
allow greater time for the supply to respond.
5.3.1 Constant Current
Constant current is the traditional form of soft starting,
which raises the current from zero to a specified level and
keeps the current stable at that level until the motor has
accelerated.

NOTE
5.4.2 TVR Soft Stop
AAC Adaptive Acceleration Control will control the load
according to the programmed profile. Start current will vary
according to the selected acceleration profile and the
programmed start time.
If replacing a motor connected to an MCD 500 programmed
for AAC Adaptive Control starting or stopping, or if the
starter has been tested on a different motor prior to actual
installation, the starter will need to learn the characteristics
of the new motor. The MCD 500 will automatically re-learn
the motor's characteristics if Par. 1-1 Motor Full Load Current
or Par. 1-12 Adaptive Control Gain is changed.
Timed voltage ramp reduces the voltage to the motor
gradually over a defined time. The load may continue to run
after the stop ramp is complete.
Timed voltage ramp stopping can be useful for applications
where the stop time needs to be extended, or to avoid
transients on generator set supplies.

flywheel loads such as presses).

3: Coast to stop time
NOTE
Adaptive control does not actively slow the motor down and
will not stop the motor faster than a coast to stop. To shorten
the stopping time of high inertia loads, use brake.
The first AAC Adaptive Deceleration Control stop will be a
normal soft stop. This allows the MCD 500 to learn the
characteristics of the connected motor. This motor data is
used by the MCD 500 during subsequent Adaptive Control
stops.
Braking has two stages:
1.
Pre-brake: Provides an intermediate level of
braking to slow motor speed to a point where full
brake can be operated successfully (approximately
70% speed).
2.
Full brake: Brake provides maximum braking
torque, but is ineffective at speeds greater than
approximately 70%.
To configure the MCD 500 for brake operation:
NOTE
Adaptive Control will control the load according to the
programmed profile. Stopping current will vary according to
the selected deceleration profile and stop time.
If replacing a motor connected to an MCD 500 programmed
for AAC Adaptive Control starting or stopping, or if the
starter has been tested on a different motor prior to actual
installation, the starter will need to learn the characteristics
of the new motor. The MCD 500 will automatically re-learn
the motor's characteristics if Par. 1-1 Motor Full Load Current
or Par. 1-12 Adaptive Control Gain is changed.
5.4.4 Brake
NOTE
If the brake torque is set too high, the motor will stop before
the end of the brake time and the motor will suffer
unnecessary heating which could result in damage.
1.
Set Par. 1-11 for the desired stopping time duration
(1). This is the total braking time and must be set
sufficiently longer than the brake time (Par 1-16) to
allow the pre-braking stage to reduce motor speed
to approximately 70. If the stop time is too short,
braking will not be successful and the motor will
coast to stop.
2.
Set Brake Time (Par. 1-16) to approximately one
quarter of the programmed Stop Time. This sets
the time for the Full Brake stage (2).
3.
Adjust the Brake Torque (Par. 1-15) so that the
desired stopping performance is achieved. If set
too low, the motor will not stop completely and
will coast to stop by the end of the braking period.
Contact your local supplier for further information for installations using an external zero-speed sensor (e.g. applications
with variable load during the braking cycle).

the load or to assist servicing. The motor can be jogged in
either forward or reverse direction.

The maximum available torque for jog is approximately 50%
- 75% of motor full load torque (FLT) depending on the
motor. Available jog torque in reverse is approximately 50% 75% of the jog torque in forward direction. To set the jog
torque level, use Par. 15-8.
NOTE
Setting Par. 15-8 above 50% may cause increased shaft

CAUTION
Slow speed running is not intended for continuous
operation due to reduced motor cooling. Jog changes the
motor's heating profile and reduced the accuracy of the

Application Examples
MCD 500 Operating Instruction
5.12 Soft Braking
For high inertia loads the MCD 500 can be configured for soft braking.
In this application the MCD 500 is employed with forward run and braking contactors. When MCD 500 receives a start signal
(button S1), it closes the forward run contactor (KM1) and controls the motor according to the programmed primary motor
settings.
When the MCD 500 receives a stop signal (button S2), it opens the forward run contactor (KM1) and closes the braking contactor
(KM2) after a delay of approximately 2-3 seconds (KT1). KA3 is also closed to activate the secondary motor settings, which should
be user programmed for the desired stopping performance characteristics.
When motor speed approaches zero, the external shaft rotation sensor (A2) stops the soft starter and opens the braking
contactor (KM2).

MCD 500 Operating Instruction
NOTE
If the MCD-500 trips on supply frequency (Par. 16-5
Frequency) when the braking contactor KM2 opens, modify
the setting of Pars. 2-8 - 2-10.
5.13 Two Speed Motor
The MCD 500 can be configured for control of dual speed
Dahlander type motors, using a high speed contactor (KM1),
low speed contactor (KM2) and a star contactor (KM3).
When the soft starter receives a high speed start signal, it
closes the high speed contactor (KM1) and star contactor
(KM3), then controls the motor according to the primary
motor settings (par. 1-1 - 1-16.)
NOTE
When the soft starter receives a low speed start signal, it
closes the low speed contactor (KM2). This closes Input A
and the MCD 500 controls the motor according to the
secondary motor settings (par. 7-1 - 7-16).
Pole Amplitude Modulated (PAM) motors alter the speed by
effectively changing the stator frequency using external
winding configuration. Soft starters are not suitable for use
with this type of two-speed motor.

When a protection condition is detected, the MCD 500 will
write this to the event log and may also trip or issue a
warning. The soft starter's response to some protections may
depend on the Protection Action settings (parameter group

If the MCD 500 trips you will need to reset the soft starter
before restarting. If the MCD 500 has issued a warning, the
soft starter will reset itself once the cause of the warning has
been resolved.

MCD 500 Operating Instruction
9.2 General Faults
This table describes situations where the soft starter does not operate as expected but does not trip or give a warning.
Symptom
Soft starter does not respond to commands.
Probable Cause
- If the soft starter does not respond to the RESET button on the LCP:
The soft starter may be in Auto On mode and will only accept commands from the remote
control inputs. In Auto On mode, the Auto On LED on the LCP is active. Press the Hand On or
Off button to enable control via the LCP (this will also send a start or stop command to the
MCD 500).
- If the soft starter does not respond to commands from the control inputs:
The soft starter may be in Hand On mode and will only accept commands from the LCP.
When the soft starter is in Hand On control mode, the Off or Hand On LED on the LCP is
active. To change to Auto On mode, press the Auto On button once.
The control wiring may be incorrect. Check that the remote start, stop and reset inputs are
configured correctly (see Control Wiring for details).
The signals to the remote inputs may be incorrect. Test the signalling by activating each
input signal in turn. The appropriate remote control input LED should activate on the LCP.
The soft starter will only execute a start command from the remote inputs if the remote stop
input is inactive and the remote reset input is activated (the Reset LED on the starter will be
on).
- If the soft starter does not respond to a start command from either the local or remote
controls:
9 9
The soft starter may be waiting for the restart delay to elapse. The length of the restart delay
is controlled by Par. 2-11 Restart Delay.
The motor may be too hot to permit a start. If Par. 2-12 Motor Temperature Check is set to
Check, the soft starter will only permit a start when it calculates that the motor has sufficient
thermal capacity to complete the start successfully. Wait for the motor to cool before
attempting another start.
The emergency stop function may be active. If Par. 3-3 is set to Emergency Stop and there is
an open circuit on the corresponding input, the MCD 500 will not start. If the emergency
stop situation has been resolved, close the circuit on the input.
The soft starter does not control the motor
correctly during starting.
- Start performance may be unstable when using a low Motor Full Load Current setting
Par. 1-1). This can affect use on a small test motor with full load current between 5 A and
50 A.
- Power factor correction (PFC) capacitors must be installed on the supply side of the soft
starter. To control a dedicated PFC capacitor contactor, connect the contactor to run
relay terminals.
Motor does not reach full speed.
- If the start current is too low, the motor will not produce enough torque to accelerate to
full speed. The soft starter may trip on excess start time.
NOTE
Make sure the motor starting parameters are appropriate for the application and
that you are using the intended motor starting profile. If Par. 3-3 is set to Motor Set
Select, check that the corresponding input is in the expected state.
- The load may be jammed. Check the load for severe overloading or a locked rotor
situation.
Erratic motor operation.
- The SCRs in the MCD 500 require at least 5 A of current to latch. If you are testing the soft
starter on a motor with full load current less than 5 A, the SCRs may not latch correctly.
Soft stop ends too quickly.
- The soft stop settings may not be appropriate for the motor and load. Review the
settings of Pars. 1-10, 1-11, 7-10 and 7-11.
- If the motor is very lightly loaded, soft stop will have limited effect.
