Two smart starters are available. The Building Automation Starter (BAS-1P™) is designed for single-phase motors, and the Energy Management Starter (EMS™) is designed to work with HVAC fans, pumps, and air handlers. The BAS-1P features voltage and dry inputs for ease of integration, system override modes (for smoke purge in fireman’s override), and a concealed hand-off-auto operation selection. The starter also functions as a disconnect with a lockable motor rated switch. Due to a wide range overload, installation is simplified, eliminating callbacks due to missized heaters. The EMS starter easily integrates with control systems by incorporating BACnet communications. According to the manufacturer, using power monitoring rather than current monitoring, the EMS is capable of detecting belt loss or coupling sheer accurately without difficult adjustments. Damper control and fireman’s override (smoke purge) are also standard.

Cerus Industrial Inc., 22995 NW Evergreen Parkway, Hillsboro, OR 97124; 800-962-3787 or 503-646-2500; 503-643-4925 (fax); www.cerusind.com
