11/2009 Structure of a Motor Starter in Accordance with UL508A—Feeder Circuits and Branch Circuits

Group Motor Installations In a group motor installation, a single disconnecting means and SCPD can
be used for a group of motors. The specific rules are described in NEC
Sections 430-112 and 430-53.
A. Group installations are primarily used in the following applications:
1. Fractional hp motors—NEC Section 430.53 (A):
For several motors, each rated 1 hp maximum on a branch circuit of
600 V maximum, a single SCPD not exceeding 15 A is permitted under
the following circumstances:
— No single motor is rated greater than 6 A
— The branch short-circuit device rating marked on any controller
(UL508 circuit breaker, switch or contactor) is not exceeded
— Appropriate motor overload protection is used
2. Smallest rated motor protected—NEC Section 430.53 (B):
The SCPD is sized for the motor in the group with the lowest rating
3. Other group installations—NEC Section 430.53 (C):
Two or more motors of any rating, or one or more motors and other
loads, where all the following conditions are met:
— Each motor controller and overload protection device carries a
Motor Group Installation listing.
— Each circuit breaker (if used) is listed and is of the inverse time type.
— The SCPD (fuse or circuit breaker) is sized for the largest motor plus
the sum of all other motors and loads.
— The sizing of the SCPD (fuse or circuit breaker) does not exceed the
maximum allowed for overload protection of the smallest motor.
— Appropriate overcurrent protection is provided for non-motor loads.
B. The tap conductor sizing rules for group motor installations are governed
by NEC Section 430.53 (D). Conductors from the load side of the SCPD
for the motor group must comply with one of the following:
• The ampacity is not less than that of the branch circuit conductors.
• The ampacity is not less than 1/3 that of the branch circuit conductors,
and the length is not more than 7.5 m (25 ft).
• The ampacity is not less than 1/10 that of the SCPD for the motor group,
the length is not more than 3 m (10 ft), and the manual motor controller
is marked “Suitable for Tap Conductor Protection in Group Installations.”
Products certified for motor grouping must carry the markings on the
product label or instruction sheet required by NEC and UL (such as
“Suitable for Tap Conductor Protection in Group Installations”).

Structure of a Motor Starter in Accordance with UL508A—Required Functions of Combination Starters 11/2009

Required Functions of Combination starters are the most common type of packaged motor
Combination Starters controllers. They are called combination because of their construction and
combined functions. NEC Article 430 defines the required functions of
combination starters. Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.® (UL) specifies the
tests and verifications that the components must pass before they can be
listed as suitable for use for those functions.
Figure 3 depicts the four component functions that compose a complete
motor branch circuit as defined by the NEC.

11/2009 Structure of a Motor Starter in Accordance with UL508A—Types of Combination Starter Constructions

Types of Combination Starter UL 508 is the UL safety standard for industrial control equipment. Part IV
Constructions defines the component functions, construction, testing, and performance
requirements of six styles of combination starters. Each of the six styles
meets the requirements of NEC Article 430 for the motor disconnecting
means, the motor branch circuit short-circuit and ground-fault protection, the
motor controller, and the motor overload (OL) protection. Each provides
adequate protection against fire or personal injury under fault conditions.
The UL 508 type designations are differentiated by the actual components
used to protect the motor branch circuit as illustrated in Table 2.

Disconnecting Means on a The disconnecting means on the feeder circuit, ahead of the last SCPD,
Feeder Circuit must be a UL98 disconnect switch or UL489 circuit breaker. UL508 switches
or motor protectors are not acceptable.
On the branch circuit, the following are permitted as the disconnecting
means when installed between the final motor branch circuit short circuit
protection and the motor:
• any UL508 switch, suitable as a motor disconnect (according to NEC
Section 430.81), that is used to start and stop a motor,
• a manual motor controller that is suitable as a motor disconnect
(according to NEC Section 430.109).

Disconnecting Means A disconnecting means must be provided for each incoming supply (branch)
circuit, and must open each ungrounded conductor of the supply circuit.
This disconnecting means could be one of the following:
• UL489 inverse-time or instantaneous-trip circuit breaker
• UL489 molded-case switch
• UL98 switch unit, either open type or enclosed
For a motor starter, the disconnecting means could be a UL508 type E self-
protected combination motor controller.
The sizing of the disconnecting means must meet UL508A Section 30.2.
A UL508 manual motor controller or switch (such as the TeSys Vario
device) is certified for use on the load side of a motor's branch circuit
protection. This is commonly called a load break switch.

Industrial Machinery requirements These requirements cover industrial control panels for industrial machinery
(NFPA79 Section 5.3.3.1 and (NFPA 79-2002, Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery). The following
types of machines are identified as industrial machinery:
UL508A Section 65, 66)
• Metalworking machine tools, including machines that cut or form metal
• Plastics machinery, including injection molding, extrusion, blow molding,
specialized processing, thermoset molding, and size reduction
machines
• Wood machinery, including woodworking, laminating, and sawmill
machines
• Assembly machines
• Material handling machines, including industrial robots and transfer
machines
• Inspection and testing machines, including coordinate measuring and in-
process gauging machines

An operating mechanism for the disconnecting means must have the


following characteristics:
• Readily accessible when the enclosure doors are in the open or closed
position
• Installed so that its operation is not restricted by the enclosure door
while in the open position
• Operable independent of the door position without the use of accessory
tools or devices
• Lockable in the Off position independent of the door position—and when
the mechanism is locked, the disconnect cannot be closed
The UL98 TeSys GS disconnect switches meet these requirements.
• The TeSys GS1 disconnect switch requires the use of operating
mechanism GS1AD010 and GS1AD020.
• The TeSys GS2 disconnect switch provides these features (effective in
the fourth quarter of 2009).
The UL489 NSF and PowerPact Circuit breakers meet these requirements
when used in conjunction with a Class 9422 or 9421L operating mechanism
and 9421LH79 handle.

Short Circuit Protection for Drives are not rated for group motor applications.
Drives When a variable-speed drive is connected to a single-motor circuit, the
branch-circuit protection provided must be of the type and size specified by
the manufacturer's instructions that come with the drive. When the
instructions do not specify the type and size, a branch-circuit fuse or
inverse-time circuit breaker must be used and must be sized based on the
input current rating of the drive multiplied by the percentage from UL508A
Table 31.1.
Schneider Electric tested drives in combination with the following:
• Fuses
• UL489 circuit breakers
• GV2P and GV3P UL508 Type E self-protected, manual combination
starters
The optimized solution for drives is the combination with UL508 Type E,
TeSys GV self-protected, manual combination starters. This combination
was tested for the following drives:
• ATV21 at 22 kA / 480 V
• ATV31, ATV61, and ATV71 at 65 kA / 480 V

11/2009 Short Circuit Protection for Drives—SCCR requirement in UL508A

SCCR requirement in UL508A NEC Article 409, NFPA 79, and UL508A require that the SCCR be marked
on all control panels.
The final builder or assembler of the equipment inside the panel is
responsible for providing the SCCR for the overall panel, determined by one
of the following three options:
• Testing each panel construction and recording the construction in the
follow-up procedure. With the multitude of possible product
combinations within a panel, this option can require much testing and
maintenance. Third party testing and certification may also be required.
• Purchasing previously tested constructions (combinations) from a major
supplier of equipment that can be tabulated in the control or machine
panel builder's procedure. Once you have all the component ratings,
either use an outside service or UL 508A, Supplement SB.
• Using a method described in UL 508A, Supplement SB.
Important: Using the interrupting rating of the main OCPD for the panel is
not an acceptable practice!

WARNING
INADEQUATE SHORT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTING RATING
Do not use the interrupting rating of the main OCPD as the SCCR rating
for the controller.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious


injury, or equipment damage.

By using discrete components to assemble a combination motor controller


within a panel, and providing UL508A combination motor controller data
(some listed under the Square D brand name), Schneider Electric offers
solutions for achieving an SCCR that is higher than the rating of the lowest-
rated individual discrete component. These combinations can be found at
the following websites:

Specific Requirements for the Canadian Market—Installation and Product Standards 11/2009

Specific Requirements for


the Canadian Market

Installation and Product The installation standard in Canada is the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC).
Standards The CEC and the NEC are similar but not 100% equivalent.
The same is true for the CSA standards and corresponding UL standards
(see Table 28). Some of the major differences are detailed below.

Certification Process As in the U.S., Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (such as CSA,
ETL, TUV, and UL) are able to certify equipment according to these CSA
standards. Refer to “Acceptance of Electrical Equipment in the U.S.” on
page 3. The procedure is the same.

Technical Differences between Some examples of differences between the Canadian and U.S. standards
Canadian and U.S. Standards that currently apply to motor starters are listed below. (Note that the TeSys
product line is designed for compliance and capatibility with both the UL and
the CSA requirements.)
• Type E combination motors starters are also recognized in Canada but
Type F currently are not.
• Type E applications don't require the use of large spacing adapters as in
the U.S.
• Group installation is recognized but the rules to define the common
branch-circuit protection setting is quite different.
• Industrial control panels must meet CSA C22.2 No. 14
• Elevator equipment appliances must comply with the specific
CSA Nr. B44.1 standard.
• Product marking requirements differ slightly.
