Carlo Gavazzi

Carlo Gavazzi offers a complete range of Contactors and Overloads for switching currents up to 900 Amps (600 HP @ 480 VAC). All contactors are available with a wide selection of coil voltages and come standard with built-in auxiliary outputs. Interlock and wiring kits are available to turn 2 standard contactors into reversing contactors.

Electram is a CSA certified facility for producing magnetic starter assemblies. We produce almost any magnetic starter in NEMA 1, NEMA 12 or NEMA 4 enclosures - from full-voltage reversing and non-reversing, across-the-line, part winding start, or Wye/Delta starters.

Electram stocks a complete line of Carlo Gavazzi control components for quick assembly of most any magnetic starter.

Carlo Gavazzi MCP (HMCP) motor circuit protectors comply with specifications in accordance with IEC 60947-2, IEC 60947-4-1, UL508 (Combination motor controller Type E starter), and CSA C22.2 No. 14, GB14048 - providing reliable and economical multi-motor combination starter assemblies.

In addition, the Carlo Gavazzi range also includes Definite Purpose Contactors up to 50 Amps in 1 pole, 1 pole + shunt, 2 pole, and 3 pole configurations. The 3 pole types can also be configured as reversing starters. View Brochure

Building a multi-motor control panel?

Why not take a GMS32A, couple it to a Carlo Gavazzi CC contactor via a GDA32HA coupler, then install this combination starter onto a GMU45 backplate. Then install this starter on a DIN rail.

Next place as many combination starters as may be required for the complete controller all onto the same DIN rail. Install an MSVGW45 Link set across the top of up to 5 combination starters, install an MSVGWE1-14 Main lug and the complete group of starters can be fed from a single power source.

Note: Multiple MSVGW45 Link sets can be combined to connect more than 5 combination starters to a single power source (within the 63A rating of the MSVGWE1-14 Main lug).

MCPs stacked by MSVGW45-14-3 Link set Thermal Release Trip Current: The adjustable inverse bimetal trip reliability protects motors against overloads and additionally provides motor protection even in the case of single-phasesing.

Magnetic Release Trip Current: The instantaneous magnetic trip has a fixed operating current setting that corresponds to 13 times the maximum value of settin range.

Current / Voltage / Phase Loss Monitors

Carlo Gavazzi offers a comprehensive range of monitoring controls for monitoring of phase loss, incorrect phase sequence, phase unbalance, over/under current, over/under load, over/under frequency, and over/under voltage. Easy replacement for Electromatic products.

These monitors are used in a wide range of applications for protecting motors against the damaging effects of single phasing and overloads (elevators, compressors, pumps, air conditioning systems, mixing tanks)

They are also used extensively for monitoring instrumentation signals (4-20mA, 0-10V), verification of machinery operation, detection of broken heater elements, monitoring of lights in critical areas (runway lights at airports), monitoring of ventilation fans, and in building automation systems.

Metal Enclosures

Carlo Gavazzi is your North American source for ETA enclosures. These high quality enclosures are available in a wide variety of sizes - to suit just about any application. From simple enclosures to complete suites, ETA has an enclosure to suit your requirements.

For larger enclosures, the ARETA line is the ideal solution. It combines the strength of fully-welded enclosures with the flexibility and ease of shipping of a modular system. This series can be expanded into complete integrated control stations with cabinets, control desks and PC stations.

All ETA and ARETA enclosures (with exception of stainless steel) are powder-coated finish. These are truly high-quality NEMA 4 enclosures.

Electram has a complete stock of NEMA 4 enclosures on hand. Call us today for available sizes and pricing.
