Description — Bulletin 1500 Vacuum Controllers
The Centerline® Medium Voltage Controllers provide starting of standard three phase induction and synchronous motors. Controllers for induction motors are available in voltage ranges from 2400 to 6900 volts, to control motors up to 9000 Hp. Synchronous controllers are available for voltages from 2400 to 6900 volts for motors up to 10000 Hp.

• Low voltage compartment – low voltage components and control wiring • Power bus compartment – encloses main horizontal power bus In addition to the controllers, auxiliary sections are also available. The auxiliary sections include incomers, load break switches and transition units.

Induction Motor Controllers
Full voltage non-reversing controllers are available in two structure configurations: • 1-High: One complete motor starter in a single vertical section. • 2-High: Two complete motor starters in a single vertical section. Induction controllers can be supplied for the following starting modes: • • • • Full Voltage Reversing Full Voltage Non-Reversing Multi-Speed Reduced Voltage, reactor and autotransformer

Description — Smart Motor Controllers, Bulletin 1560D/1562D
This controller provides solid-state reduced voltage starting and stopping control for medium voltage motors. Included as standard are built-in metering, protection and communications capabilities. Programmable for total flexibility giving you a full range of starting methods. • Soft Start — provides smooth stepless motor acceleration. • Soft Start with selectable Kickstart — provides an extra pulse of torque to overcome the friction in high inertia loads. • Current Limit Start — useful for applications that require the motor’s inrush current to be limited during acceleration. • Dual Ramp Start — enables you to choose between two separate Soft Start profiles. • Full Voltage Start — performs like a solid-state contactor. Full inrush current and locked motor torque are achieved. Refer to Rockwell Automation Sales Office or Distributor for price and technical information. There are many other features and accessories available for controlling and protecting your motors.

Synchronous Motor Controllers
Synchronous controllers are available for similar methods listed above for both Brush or Brushless type motors.
