51 ADX 0110B - 51 ADX 0125B

General characteristics
Reduced voltage soft starter with torque control and
maximum starting current limit. It is used for the
progressive starting and stopping of asynchronous
three-phase squirrel-cage motors.
The integrated by-pass contactor, ADX...B types only,
drastically limits dissipation, as a result equipment for
electric panel cooling ventilation can be eliminated and
the enclosure size can be reduced as well.
CONTROL
During starting: Torque control acceleration, current limit
control and booster.
During stopping: Torque control deceleration, dynamic
braking and free-wheel.
In emergency conditions: Starting without protections,
direct-on-line starting using integrated by-pass
contactor.
Remote control: PC supervision by connection with
RS-232/RS-485 converter, modem or GSM modem.
Automatic call function (Autocall) in case of alarm
conditions by sending a message to a cellular phone
(SMS-Short Message Service) and/or to a mailbox.
KEYPAD OPERATIONS
Liquid-crystal backlit 2-line 16-character display
Multilanguage capability (Italian, English, French,
Spanish)
Basic, advanced and function programming menus
Keypad stop and start
Motor and mains parameter readings:
line voltage values (L-L)
phase current
active and apparent power values per phase
power factor per phase
kWh
Time sequential events log
Clock calendar with backup battery.
PARTICULAR FUNCTIONS
Digital inputs and programmable relay outputs. Analog
input (0 ...10V, 0 ... 20V or 4 ... 20mA) for ramp
acceleration and/or deceleration, motor starting and
stopping control thresholds, programmable relay enable
and disable control thresholds. Analog output
(0 ...10V, 0 ... 20V or 4 ... 20mA) for current, torque,
motor thermal status and power factor readings.
PROTECTIONS
Motor: Dual thermal protection class (one during
starting phase and the other during running) or by
PTC sensor, locked rotor, current asymmetry,
minimum torque and starting time too long
Auxiliary voltage: Voltage value too low
Power voltage: Phase failure, phase sequence and
frequency out of limits
Control inputs and analog output: Static 24VDC
short-circuit protection with automatic resetting.
Starter: Overcurrent, high temperature, SCR and
by-pass contactor malfunction.

General characteristics
The flush-mount ADX TAST remote keypad is identical to
the one on board the soft starter except for the start and
stop controls of the motor, which are permanently
disabled. With this keypad, starter setup can be
conducted, motor readings and operating data displayed
and data and parameter transfer (ADX remote keypad)
made, as well.
A backup copy of the starter data and parameter setup is
obtainable with the transfer functions. In this way, quick
and easy setup operations can be done especially with
machines assembled in series.
The baud transmission rate, the contrast and backlight
can also be adjusted by this keypad.
It is supplied standard with a 3 meter long cable and
suitable connectors to complete the link to the ADX
RS-485 port. The three terminals of the keypad supply
are removable.
For longer distances, this keypad can be connected to
the ADX RS-232 port via RS-232/RS-485 converter
(galvanically isolated).

The remote control software consents to the PC supervision


of all ADX soft starter functions, including: parameter setup,
real-time readout display, graphics of monitored parameter
data during operation and starter events log display, each
with time and date entry.
The PC-ADX connection is made by cable via the RS-232
port, RS-232/RS-485 converter, modem or GSM modem.
The RS-232 port is not suitable for permanent connections.
The connection via modem permits the ADX starter to advise
alarm conditions, that is an automatic link to the remote PC.
GSM modem represents the ultimate solution for unmanned
applications or where there are no telephone lines.
Interesting communications features are available with this
type of modem, such as:
SMS (Short Message Service): At alarm conditions, the
ADX can send its ID and alarm code, with time and date
entry. The advantage is the possibility of reaching service
people, without delay, wherever they are located.
E-mail (via Internet): a message with the same structure
as mentioned above can be transmitted to a specified
mailbox. The advantages of this type of message with
respect to the SMS are that any communication, received
through Internet mail server, is permanent and an vast
number of these can be received and reviewed at any
time.

General characteristics
Display of all the monitored data by the ADX starter
Virtual ADX keypad with access to all functions
Parameter adjustment, only accessible with password,
saving on disc and subsequent reloading on ADX
starter
Display of starter events log, showing time and date
entry
Graphics display of monitored data during operation
Connection through converter or modem
GSM-modem management with SMS or e-mail
transmission
AUTOCALL function for automatic PC call
Program configuration in 4 languages (Italian,
English, Spanish and French)
Easy installation and setup.
Advantages
GSM network management for inaccessible
applications where there are no telephone lines
Call management during alarm conditions for SMS or
e-mail transmission
No limit for remote control distance
Possibility of remote motor starting
Reduction of service time
Reduction of maintenance and downtime.
Operational characteristics
Minimum hardware requirements of the personal
computer:
Windows 95/98 operating system
Pentium 100Mhz or faster processor
At least 16Mb of free RAM
About 4Mb of free hard disk memory
Graphic card having at least 800x600 resolution
One free serial interface port
CD-ROM drive.
