Manual Motor Starters & Switches
A manual switch is a motor controller whose contact mechanism is operated by a mechanical linkage from a toggle handle or rotary handle. A manual starter is basically an “ON-OFF” switch with overload protection. Siemens manual starters and switches are used in many applications for local control of equipment in the industrial or construction markets, such as operating power saws, pumps, fans, conveyors, blowers, packaging, sorting and other machinery. They can be flush or surface mounted and adapt to multiple NEMA type environmental conditions. Application may vary from a clean indoor hospital environment to harsh, hazardous indoor and outdoor chemical plants.
