CAUTION STATEMENTS
2
Caution Statements
Caution Statements cannot cover every potential cause of equipment damage but can highlight common causes of
damage. It is the installer's responsibility to read and understand all instructions in this manual prior to installing,
operating or maintaining the equipment, to follow good electrical practice including applying appropriate personal
protective equipment and to seek advice before operating this equipment in a manner other than as described in this
manual.
NOTE
The EMX3 soft starter is not user serviceable. The unit should only be serviced by authorised service
personnel. Unauthorised tampering with the unit will void the product warranty.
2.1
Electrical Shock Risk
The voltages present in the following locations can cause severe electric shock and may be lethal:
• AC supply cables and connections
• Output cables and connections
• Many internal parts of the starter, and external option units
The AC supply must be disconnected from the starter using an approved isolation device before any cover is removed
from the starter or before any servicing work is performed.
WARNING - ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Models EMX3-0500B~EMX3-1600C: The busbar and heatsink must be treated as live whenever the unit has
mains voltage connected (including when the starter is tripped or waiting for a command).
AVERTISSEMENT - DANGER D'ELECTROCUTION
Modèles EMX3-0500B à EMX3-1600C : Les barres de puissance et le radiateur doivent être traités comme
étant des éléments sous tension si l'appareil est relié au secteur (y compris lorsque le démarreur s'est mis en
sécurité ou s'il attend une commande).
SHORT CIRCUIT
The EMX3 is not short circuit proof. After severe overload or short circuit, the operation of the EMX3
should be fully tested by an authorised service agent.
GROUNDING AND BRANCH CIRCUIT PROTECTION
It is the responsibility of the user or person installing the EMX3 to provide proper grounding and branch
circuit protection according to local electrical safety codes.
AUTO-START
Use the auto-start feature with caution. Read all the notes related to auto-start before operation.
DEMARRAGE AUTOMATIQUE
Utiliser la fonction de démarrage automatique avec précautions. Lire toutes les notes relatives au démarrage
automatique avant utilisation.
FOR YOUR SAFETY





4
The STOP function of the soft starter does not isolate dangerous voltages from the output of the starter.
The soft starter must be disconnected by an approved electrical isolation device before accessing
electrical connections.
Soft starter protection features apply to motor protection only. It is the user’s responsibility to ensure
safety of personnel operating machinery.
In some installations, accidental starts may pose an increased risk to safety of personnel or damage to the
machines being driven. In such cases, it is recommended that the power supply to the soft starter is fitted
with an isolating switch and a circuit-breaking device (eg power contactor) controllable through an
external safety system (eg emergency stop, fault detector).
The soft starter has built-in protections which can trip the starter in the event of faults and thus stop the
motor. Voltage fluctuations, power cuts and motor jams may also cause the motor to trip.
There is a possibility of the motor restarting after the causes of shutdown are rectified, which may be
dangerous for certain machines or installations. In such cases, it is essential that appropriate arrangements
EMX3 User Manual

CAUTION STATEMENTS

are made against restarting after unscheduled stops of the motor.
The soft starter is a component designed for integration within an electrical system; it is therefore the
responsibility of the system designer/user to ensure the system is safe and designed to comply with
relevant local safety standards.
AuCom cannot be held accountable for any damages incurred if the above recommendations are not
complied with.
PAR SECURITE
 La fonction STOP du démarreur progressif n'isole pas des tensions dangereuses de la sortie du
démarreur. Le démarreur progressif doit être déconnecté par un dispositif d'isolement électrique
approprié avant d'accéder aux connexions électriques.
 Les fonctions de protection du démarreur progressif ne concernent que la protection du moteur. Il
relève de la responsabilité de l'utilisateur d'assurer la sécurité des personnes travaillant sur les machines.
 Dans certaines installations, des démarrages accidentels peuvent provoquer un risque supplémentaire
pour la sécurité des personnes ou endommager les machines contrôlées. Dans de tels cas, il est
recommandé de doter l'alimentation du démarreur progressif d'un interrupteur d'isolement et d'un
coupe-circuit (par exemple, un disjoncteur) contrôlable à partir d'un système de sécurité externe (par
exemple, un arrêt d'urgence, un détecteur de défaut).
 Le démarreur progressif comporte des protections intégrées qui peuvent déclencher des mises en
sécurité dans l'éventualité de défauts et ainsi arrêter le moteur. Des fluctuations de tension, des coupures
d'alimentation et des blocages du moteur peuvent produire des mises en sécurité de celui-ci.
 Il est possible que le moteur redémarre lorsque les causes de l'arrêt sont supprimées, ce qui peut être
dangereux pour certaines machines ou installations. Dans de tels cas, il est essentiel que des dispositions
soient prises pour éviter ces redémarrages après des arrêts non prévus du moteur.

Le démarreur progressif est un appareil conçu pour s'intégrer dans un système électrique ; il relève donc
de la responsabilité du concepteur ou de l'utilisateur de veiller à ce que ce système soit sûr et conçu
selon les normes de sécurité locales en vigueur.
AuCom ne peut être tenu pour responsable de tous dommages s'étant produits parce que les
recommandations ci-dessus n'ont pas été respectées.

CAUTION
Do not apply voltage to the control input terminals. These are active 24 VDC inputs and must be
controlled with potential free contacts.
Cables to the control inputs must be segregated from mains voltage and motor cabling.
The reset input can be normally open or normally closed. Use parameter 6M to select the configuration.
5.5
Relay Outputs
The EMX3 provides four relay outputs, one fixed and three programmable.
The Run output closes when the soft start is complete (when the starting current falls below 120% of the programmed
motor full load current) and remains closed until the beginning of a stop (either soft stop or coast to stop).
Operation of the programmable outputs is determined by the settings of parameters 7A~7I.
•
•
•
If assigned to Main Contactor, the output activates as soon as the soft starter receives a start command and
remains active while the soft starter is controlling the motor (until the motor starts a coast to stop, or until
the end of a soft stop).
If assigned to a trip function, the output activates when a trip occurs.
If assigned to a flag, the output activates when the specified flag is active (parameters 7M~7O).
CAUTION
Some electronic contactor coils are not suitable for direct switching with PCB mount relays. Consult the
contactor manufacturer/supplier to confirm suitability.
Three additional outputs are available on the input/output expansion card.
5.6
Motor Thermistors
Motor thermistors can be connected directly to the EMX3. The soft starter will trip when the resistance of the
thermistor circuit exceeds approximately 3.6 kΩ or falls below 20 Ω.
If no motor thermistors are connected to the EMX3 thermistor input terminals B4, B5 must be open. If B4, B5 are
shorted, the EMX3 will trip.
The thermistor input is disabled by default, but activates automatically when a thermistor is detected. If thermistors
have previously been connected to the EMX3 but are no longer required, either:
•
•
fit a 1.2 kΩ resistor across terminals B4, B5 or
reset the starter to factory defaults (refer to Load/Save Settings on page 47). If you wish to retain the
starter’s configuration, save the starter’s settings to a user set before resetting then reload the settings after
the thermistor input has been reset.
NOTE
The thermistor circuit should be run in screened cable and must be electrically isolated from earth and all
other power and control circuits.

5.7
RTD/PT100
RTDs (PT100) can be connected directly to the EMX3. RTD/PT100s B ~ G are only available if the RTD/PT100 and
Ground Fault expansion card is fitted.
The soft starter will trip when the temperature exceeds the value specified in parameters 11A ~11G (refer to RTD
Temperatures on page 61). When fitting an RTD/PT100, always review the parameter settings. The default value for
each RTD/PT100 input is 50°C.
The RTD/PT100 input is disabled by default, but activates automatically when an RTD/PT100 is detected. If
RTD/PT100s have previously been connected to the EMX3 but are no longer required, either:
•
•
connect a 120 Ω ~ 160 Ω resistor between Signal + and Return – (B6, B8) to ensure the input remains at a
known value, then adjust parameter(s) 11A~11G so that the starter does not trip or
reset the starter to factory defaults (refer to Load/Save Settings on page 47). If you wish to retain the
starter’s configuration, save the starter’s settings to a user set before resetting then reload the settings after
the RTD/PT100 input has been reset.
NOTE
Resistors are required on any unused RTD inputs to avoid trips from electrical fast transient (EFT) noise.
When connecting an RTD, remove the resistor and associated jumper wire.
If an RTD has been connected but is no longer required, replace the resistor and jumper on that input.
•
•
5.8
Connect a 120Ω~160Ω resistor between Signal + and Return Connect a jumper wire between Signal + and Compensation.
Earth Terminals
Earth terminals are located at the back of the soft starter.

Power Terminations
NOTE
For personnel safety, the power terminals on models up to EMX3-0105B are protected by snap-off tabs.
When using large cables, it may be necessary to break off these tabs.
NOTE
Some units use aluminium busbars. 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.
Use only copper stranded or solid conductors, rated for 75 ºC or higher.

Motor Connection
EMX3 soft starters can be connected to the motor in-line or inside delta (also called three-wire and six-wire
connection). When connecting in inside delta, enter the motor full load current (FLC) for parameter 1A. The EMX3
will automatically detect whether the motor is connected in-line or inside delta and will calculate the correct inside
delta current level.
Models which are internally bypassed do not require an external bypass contactor.

Bypass Contactor
Some EMX3 soft starters are internally bypassed and do not require an external bypass contactor.
Non-bypassed soft starters 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.
Internally bypassed models:
EMX3-0023B, EMX3-0043B, EMX3-0050B, EMX3-0053B, EMX3-0076B, EMX3-0097B, EMX3-0100B, EMX3-0105B,

EMX3-0930C, EMX3-1200C, EMX3-1410C, EMX3-1600C
6.3
Main Contactor
A main contactor must be installed if the EMX3 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.
6.4
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.
6.5
Power Factor Correction
If power factor correction is used, a dedicated contactor should be used to switch in the capacitors.
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.

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/Mersen AJT fuses) can be used for Type 1 coordination according to IEC 60947-4-2
standard.
CAUTION
Adaptive Control 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 Control to soft stop the motor with stop times greater than 30 seconds, motor branch
protection should be selected as follows:
•
•
•
•
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
NOTE
Fuse selection is based on a 400% FLC start for 20 seconds in conjunction with standard published starts
per hour, duty cycle, 40°C ambient temperature and up to 1000 m altitude. For installations operating
outside these conditions, consult your local supplier.
These fuse tables contain recommendations only. Always consult your local supplier to confirm the
selection for your particular application.

POWER CIRCUITS
UL Fuse Selection and Short Circuit Ratings
Two Short Circuit Current Ratings (SCCR) are available for UL compliant applications.
• Standard Fault Currents ( @ 600 VAC circuits)
The standard fault currents are determined with reference to UL508, section 51, table 51.3. This specifies the short
circuit current that the starter must withstand based upon the soft starter model horsepower rating (or Full Load
Current (FLC) rating or Locked Rotor Amps (LRA) depending upon model).
If using the Standard Fault Current Ratings, the fuse used must be in accordance with the information in the table
below (i.e. model and manufacture specific).
• High Available Fault Currents ( @ 480 VAC circuits)
It is possible to specify short circuit current ratings exceeding the minimum ratings set by the Standard Fault Currents
(see above) when the soft starter is capable of withstanding the high available short circuit current in accordance with
the UL 508 test.
If using the High Available Fault Current Ratings, then a suitable fuse may be selected based upon Amperage and Fuse
Class (J or L as applicable).

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.
Constant current starting is ideal for applications where the start current must be kept below a particular level.

Current Ramp
Current ramp soft starting raises the current from a specified starting level (1) to a maximum limit (3), over an
extended period of time (2).
Current ramp starting can be useful for applications where:
•
•
•
the load can vary between starts (for example a conveyor which may start loaded or unloaded). Set the initial
current (parameter 2C) to a level that will start the motor with a light load, and the current limit (parameter
2D) to a level that will start the motor with a heavy load.
the load breaks away easily, but starting time needs to be extended (for example a centrifugal pump where
pipeline pressure needs to build up 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.

Adaptive Control for Starting
In an adaptive control soft start, the EMX3 adjusts the current in order to start the motor within a specified time and
using a selected acceleration profile.
CAUTION
Adaptive Control cannot start the motor faster than a direct on-line (DOL) start. If the start ramp time
(parameter 2B) is shorter than the motor's DOL start time, starting current may reach DOL levels.
Every application has a particular starting profile, based on characteristics of the load and the motor. Adaptive Control
offers three different starting profiles, to suit the requirements of different applications. Selecting a profile that matches
the inherent profile of the application can help smooth out acceleration across the full start time. Selecting a
dramatically different Adaptive Control profile can somewhat neutralise the inherent profile.
The EMX3 monitors the motor's performance during each start, to improve control for future soft starts.

start will be a Constant Current start. This allows the EMX3 to learn the characteristics of the connected motor.
This motor data is used by the EMX3 during subsequent Adaptive Control starts.

If replacing a motor connected to an EMX3 programmed for 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 EMX3 will automatically re-learn the motor's characteristics if
parameter 1A Motor Full Load Current or parameter 2K Adaptive Control Gain is changed.
•
How to Select the Adaptive Control Start Profile
The best profile will depend on the exact details of each application.
Some loads, such as submersible pumps, should not be run at slow speeds. An early acceleration profile will raise the
speed quickly, then control acceleration through the rest of the start.
CAUTION
Adaptive Control controls the motor's speed profile, within the programmed time limit. This may result
in a higher level of current than traditional control methods.
•
Fine-tuning Adaptive Control
If the motor does not start or stop smoothly, adjust the adaptive control gain (parameter 2K). The gain setting
determines how much the EMX3 will adjust future adaptive control starts and stops, based on information from the
previous start. The gain setting affects both starting and stopping performance.
•
•
710-04840-00L
If the motor accelerates or decelerates too quickly at the end of a start or stop, increase the gain setting by
5%~10%.
If the motor speed fluctuates during starting or stopping, decrease the gain setting slightly.
EMX3 User Manual

OPERATION
NOTE
Changing the gain setting resets the starter's adaptive control learning. The first start after changing the gain
will use constant current.
Kickstart
Kickstart provides a short boost of extra torque at the beginning of a start, and can be used in conjunction with current
ramp or constant current starting.

Coast to Stop
Coast to stop lets the motor slow at its natural rate, with no control from the soft starter. The time required to stop
will depend on the type of load.
TVR Soft Stop
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

Adaptive Control for Stopping
In an adaptive control soft stop, the EMX3 controls the current in order to stop the motor within a specified time and
using a selected deceleration profile. Adaptive Control can be useful in extending the stopping time of low inertia
loads.
Every application has a particular stopping profile, based on characteristics of the load and the motor. Adaptive
Control offers three different stopping profiles. Choose the adaptive control profile that best matches your application
requirements.
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.
CAUTION
Adaptive Control controls the motor's speed profile, within the programmed time limit. This may result
in a higher level of current than traditional control methods.

OPERATION
Brake
Brake reduces the time required to stop the motor.
During braking an increased noise level from the motor may be audible. This is a normal part of motor braking.
When brake is selected, the EMX3 uses DC injection to slow the motor.
EMX3 braking:
•
•
Does not require the use of a DC brake contactor
Controls all three phases so that the braking currents and associated heating are evenly distributed through
the motor.
CAUTION
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. Careful configuration is required to ensure safe
operation of the starter and motor.
A high brake torque setting can result in peak currents up to motor DOL being drawn while the motor is
stopping. Ensure protection fuses installed in the motor branch circuit are selected appropriately.
CAUTION
Brake operation causes the motor to heat faster than the rate calculated by the motor thermal model. If
you are using brake, install a motor thermistor or allow sufficient restart delay (parameter 4M).
Braking has two stages:
•
•
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).
Full brake: brake provides maximum braking torque but is ineffective at speeds greater than approximately
70%.
To configure the EMX3 for brake operation:
1.
2.
3.
Set parameter 2I for the desired stopping time duration (1). This is the total braking time and must be set
sufficiently longer than the brake time (parameter 2M) 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.
Set Brake Time (parameter 2M) to approximately one quarter of the programmed Stop Time. This sets the time
for the Full Brake stage (2).
Adjust the Brake Torque (parameter 2L) 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.

CAUTION
When using DC brake, the mains supply must be connected to the soft starter (input terminals L1, L2, L3)

NOTE
For loads which may vary between braking cycles, install a zero speed sensor to ensure that the soft starter
ends DC braking when the motor stops. This avoids unnecessary heating of the motor.
For more information on using the EMX3 with an external speed sensor (eg for applications with variable
load during the braking cycle), refer to DC Brake with External Zero Speed Sensor on page 68.

Jog Operation
Jog runs the motor at reduced speed, to allow alignment of the load or to assist servicing. The motor can be jogged in
either forward or reverse direction.
CAUTION
Slow speed running is not intended for continuous operation due to reduced motor cooling.
Jog operation causes the motor to heat faster than the rate calculated by the motor thermal model. If you

NOTE
Soft start and soft stop are not available during jog operation.
Jog is only available for the primary motor.
The maximum available torque for jog forward is approximately 50%~75% of motor full load torque (FLT) depending

Inside Delta Operation
Adaptive Control, Jog, Brake and PowerThrough functions are not supported with inside delta (six-wire) operation.
these functions are programmed when the starter is connected inside delta the behaviour is as given below:
Adaptive Control Start
Adaptive Control Stop
Jog
Brake
PowerThrough
If
The starter performs a constant current start.
The starter performs a TVR soft stop if parameter 2I Stop Time is >0 secs. If
parameter 2I is set to 0 secs the starter performs a coast to stop.
The starter issues a warning with the error message Unsupported Option.
The starter performs a coast to stop.
The starter trips with the error message Lx-Tx Shorted.
NOTE
When connected in inside delta, current imbalance is the only phase loss protection that is active during run.
Do not disable current imbalance protection (parameter 4H) during inside delta operation.
NOTE
When connecting in inside delta, enter the motor full load current (FLC) for parameter 1A. The EMX3 will
automatically detect whether the motor is connected in-line or inside delta and will calculate the correct
inside delta current level.

9 Motor Data-2
The EMX3 can support two different starting and stopping motor data sets.
•
To use the EMX3 with two separate motors (such as a duty-standby configuration), use parameter 9A to
select dual thermal modelling and configure parameters 9B~9E to suit the second motor.
• To use the EMX3 with two different motor data sets for the same motor (for dual speed motors or
applications where starting conditions may vary), use parameter 9A to select a single thermal model, and
configure the starting and stopping profiles as required in parameters 10A~10G. The soft starter will ignore
parameters 9B~9E and will use settings from the primary motor.
To select the secondary motor data set, a programmable input must be configured to parameter set selection
(parameters 6A and 6F) and the input must be active when the soft starter receives a start signal.

Emergency Run Operation
In normal operation the EMX3 is controlled via a remote two-wire signal (terminals C31, C32).
Emergency Run is controlled by a two-wire circuit connected to Input A (terminals C53, C54). Closing Input A causes
the EMX3 to run the motor and ignore certain trip conditions.
NOTE
Although the Emergency Run satisfies the functionality requirements of Fire Mode, AuCom does not
recommend its use in situations that require testing and/or compliance with specific standards as it is not
certified.
CAUTION
Continued use of Emergency Run is not recommended. Emergency Run may compromise the starter life as
all protections and trips are disabled.
Using the starter in 'Emergency Run' mode will void the product warranty.

DC Brake with External Zero Speed Sensor
For loads which may vary between braking cycles, there are benefits in using an external zero-speed sensor to interface
with the EMX3 for brake shut-off. This control method ensures that the EMX3 braking will always shut off when the
motor has reached a standstill, thus avoiding unnecessary motor heating.
The following schematic diagram shows how you can use a zero-speed sensor with the EMX3 to turn the brake
function off at motor standstill. The zero-speed sensor (A2) is often referred to as an under-speed detector. Its
internal contact is open at zero-speed and closed at any speed above zero-speed. Once the motor has reached a
standstill, C53, C54 will open and the starter will be disabled. When the next start command is given (ie next
application of K10), C53, C54 closes and the EMX3 is enabled.
The EMX3 must be operated in remote mode and parameter 6A Input A Function must be set to 'Starter Disable'.
CAUTION
Brake operation causes the motor to heat faster than the rate calculated by the motor thermal model. If
you are using brake, install a motor thermistor or allow sufficient restart delay (parameter 4M).

APPLICATION EXAMPLES
CAUTION
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. Careful configuration is required to ensure safe
operation of the starter and motor.
A high brake torque setting can result in peak currents up to motor DOL being drawn while the motor is
stopping. Ensure protection fuses installed in the motor branch circuit are selected appropriately.

Soft Braking
For applications with high inertia and/or a variable load, the EMX3 can be configured for soft braking.
In this application the EMX3 is employed with forward run and braking contactors. When the EMX3 receives a start
signal (pushbutton S1), it closes the forward run contactor (K1) and controls the motor according to the programmed
primary motor settings.
When the EMX3 receives a stop signal (pushbutton S2), it opens the forward run contactor (K1) and closes the
braking contactor (K2) after a delay of approximately 2-3 seconds (K1T). K12 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 zero speed sensor (A2) stops the soft starter and opens the braking
contactor (K2).

Two-Speed Motor
The EMX3 can be configured for control of dual speed Dahlander type motors, using a high speed contactor (K1), low
speed contactor (K2) and a star contactor (K3).
NOTE
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 the soft starter receives a high speed start signal, it closes the high speed contactor (K1) and star contactor (K3),
then controls the motor according to the primary motor settings.
When the soft starter receives a low speed start signal, it closes the low speed contactor (K2). This closes Input A and
the EMX3 controls the motor according to the secondary motor settings.

• Parameter 12A Motor Data-1 Ramp
• Select 'Dual Ramp' (for slip-ring induction motor control)
• Parameter 12C Changeover Time
• Default setting is 150 milliseconds. Set this to a value just greater than the changeover contactor (K1)
pole closing time.
• Parameter 12D Slip Ring Retard
• Default setting is 50%. Set this parameter to a value which is high enough to cause the motor to instantly
accelerate once the rotor resistance (R1) has been bridged out and low enough to avoid a motor
current pulse.
Start the motor under normal load conditions and record the time it takes to reach a constant speed with
external rotor resistance (R1) in the circuit. Stop the motor soon after a constant speed has been reached.
Change parameter 7E to the recorded time value.
Start the motor under normal load conditions and monitor the motor speed behaviour and motor current when
the changeover contactor (K1) switches in to short-out the rotor resistance (R1).
If the motor does not accelerate immediately after changeover, increase the setting of parameter 12D.
If there is a pulse in motor current immediately after changeover, reduce the setting of parameter 12D.

12 Troubleshooting
12.1
Protection Responses
When a protection condition is detected, the EMX3 will write this to the event log and may also trip or issue a
warning. The soft starter's response depends on the Protection Action setting (parameter group 16).
Some protection responses cannot be adjusted by the user. These trips are usually caused by external events (such as
phase loss) or by a fault within the soft starter. These trips do not have associated parameters and cannot be set to
Warn or Log.
If the EMX3 trips you will need to identify and clear the condition that triggered the trip, then reset the soft starter
before restarting. To reset the starter, press the RESET button on the keypad or activate the Reset remote input.
If the EMX3 has issued a warning, the soft starter will reset itself once the cause of the warning has been resolved.
12.2
Trip Messages
This table lists soft starter's protection mechanisms and the probable cause of the trip. Some of these can be adjusted
using parameter group 4 Protection Settings and parameter group 16 Protection Action, other settings are built-in

BUSBAR ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE
14 Busbar Adjustment Procedure
The busbars on non-bypassed models EMX3-0360C ~ EMX3-1600C can be adjusted for top or bottom input and
output as required.
NOTE
Many electronic components are sensitive to static electricity. Voltages so low that they cannot be felt, seen
or heard, can reduce the life, affect performance, or completely destroy sensitive electronic components.
When performing service, proper ESD equipment should be used to prevent possible damage from
occurring.
All units are manufactured with input and output busbars at the bottom of the unit as standard. The input and/or
output busbars can be moved to the top of the unit if required.

9.
Remove all wiring and links from the soft starter
before dismantling the unit.
Remove the unit cover (4 screws).
Remove the keypad faceplate, then gently remove
the keypad (2 screws).
Remove the control terminal plugs.
Gently fold the main plastic away from the starter
(12 screws).
Unplug the keypad loom from CON 1 (see note).
Label each SCR firing loom with the number of the
corresponding terminal on the backplane PCB, then
unplug the looms.
Unplug the thermistor, fan and current transformer
wires from the model board.
Remove the plastic tray from the starter (four
screws).
NOTE
Remove the main plastic slowly to avoid damaging the keypad wiring loom which runs between the main
plastic and the backplane PCB.
08605.A
10. Unscrew and remove the magnetic bypass plates
(models EMX3-0620C to EMX3-1600C only).
11. Remove the current transformer assembly (three
screws).
12. Identify which busbars are to be moved. Remove
the bolts holding these busbars in place then slide
the busbars out through the bottom of the starter
(four bolts per busbar).

13. Slide the busbars in through the top of the starter.
For input busbars, the short curved end should be
outside the starter. For output busbars, the
unthreaded hole should be outside the starter.
14. Replace the dome washers with the flat face towards
the busbar, then tighten the bolts holding the busbars
in place to 20 Nm.
15. Place the current transformer assembly over the
input busbars and screw the assembly to the body of
the starter (see note).
16. Run all wiring to the side of the starter and secure
with cable ties.
NOTE
If moving the input busbars, the current transformers (CTs) must also be reconfigured.

710-04840-00L
Label the CTs L1, L2 and L3 (L1 is leftmost when looking from the front of the starter). Remove the
cable ties and unscrew the CTs from the bracket.
Move the CT bracket to the top of the starter. Position the CTs for the correct phases, then screw
the CTs to the bracket. For models EMX3-0360C ~ EMX3-0930C, the CTs must be placed on an
angle (the left hand legs of each CT will be on the top row of holes and the right hand legs will be on
the bottom tabs).
