About the E-Series™ Two-Speed Models:

A.C. Elevators and Lifts need this control! The PE® E-Series will help you eliminate resistor ballasts/outdated resistor starting! Upgrade your 2-speed elevators with a smoother/softer ride, with increased safety and reliability, and with reduced inrush current. The PE® E-Series will easily retrofit and upgrade your existing elevator system.

2-Speed motors will have smooth/soft starting, reversing, and smooth high to low transition. Without timers!

ARC-ELIMINATION™ is an exclusive feature of the high-reliability Power Electronics soft-start controls. This feature eliminates the destructive arcing on the make & break of power contactors. With the E-Series Smooth-Move® installed, old carbon to copper contactor life will be increased, with minimized adjustment and maintenance. Metallic contact life and reliability will also be dramatically increased. Only available from Power Electronics® Intl. Inc®!

For use in the following applications:

  • 2-speed passenger or freight elevators/lifts
  • Hydraulic elevator motors
  • Starting of Motor/Generator sets
  • Upgrading of old elevator installations
  • Improvement of existing elevator designs
  • Useful on dumbwaiters and man-lifts, etc.

Product Features

Benefits

  • Takes the "kick" out of 3-phase motor starting.
  • Softly phase controls voltage to the motor.
  • Phase loss protection on input.
  • ARC-ELIMINATION™ on contactor make-and-break extends contactor life up to the mechanical limit.
  • Automatic UNIVERSAL VAC selection: 208, 230, 385, 415, 440, 480, VAC in one unit (200 and 575VAC also available)
  • 110VAC Control Voltage input is standard – all other voltages available upon request
  • Unit is the size of a small contactor
  • TIME and TORQUE settings for motor softness.
  • Sizes up to 150 Amp (Contact PE® for larger sizes)
  • Easy to install and run
  • Use with reversing and non-reversing systems
  • Extend contactor life up to their mechanical limit
  • Higher reliability
  • Saves $ on machinery life and productivity

Important Notes

For one-speed A.C. motor soft-start control, view the E-Series™ One-Speed series.

For soft-start applications with smaller full-load-amp requirements (10A max), view our Smooth-Move® 2 models.
