Eaton S811+/S801+ Soft Starters enable advanced protection and monitoring, helping industrial customers and original equipment manufacturers improve system reliability and maximize system performance with expanded motor control solutions. Courtesy: EatonEaton Corp., a diversified industrial manufacturer, is expanding its soft starter solutions to help industrial and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers by announcing Eaton S811+/S801+ soft starters. Providing smooth acceleration and deceleration of the load, S811+ and S801+ products provide advanced monitoring, protection, and communication—helping customers reduce installation time and avoid downtime, in one of the smallest footprints in the industry.

“With powerful configuration capabilities, an intuitive user interface, and diagnostics information, the Eaton S811+/S801+ soft starters help customers reduce commissioning time, maximize system performance, and minimize downtime,” said Ram Tenneti, product manager at Eaton.

The S811+/S801+ soft starters are engineered for constant torque and variable torque applications. The expanded soft starter solutions provide OEM and industrial customers with power and power factor monitoring capability, analog input, and fault warnings, in addition to fault trips and integrated Modbus RTU communication capabilities. The intuitive streamlined digital interface for S811+ allows customers to configure, monitor, and enable protection and reduces commissioning time.  In addition, copy and paste capability makes it easier to commission multiple soft starters.

The soft starter family has integrated bypass contactor and overload, eliminating the need for an external bypass contactor. The inputs and relays are programmable, thus giving flexibility to the customer.

Available in open and packaged control configurations, the S811+/S801+ family has five frame sizes for current ranges from 11 A to 1000 A. It can take 230 V to 600 V, and up to 690 V from 180 A–850 A, with power up to 850 hp.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
