Solid State Three Phase Motor Starter for Hazardous Areas

Every operator and maintenance technician on a pipeline knows safe, reliable motor controls are critical to the transmission and distribution of oil and gas. That’s why our team of former operators and maintenance technicians focused on simplicity, reliability and ease of maintenance when designing McClure Energy Solutions’ motor starters. Some key features aimed at making operations and maintenance simpler, easier and safer are LED indication of when the motor is running, auto reset upon motor overload and fingersafe internal control panel components.

Likewise, our engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) approach ensures fast delivery of a motor starter that is tailored to your needs. For example, the motor starter can be integrated with programmable logic controllers (PLC), or used in a standalone manner. It is ideal for Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations, but can also be used in non-classified areas. By using a smaller enclosure and solid state components versus conventional NEMA 7 explosion-proof starters, Enterprise Solutions’ starters provider a lower overall cost for installation and maintenance.
