NEW:  MOTUS® hybrid motor starter with IO-Link interface.

Available at any time. Worldwide.

The MOTUS® with IO-Link interface is a new network version in the MOTUS® family and enables continuous communication between the control and field level. Through this interface the control, the parameterization as well as the reading of the messages of the device is managed.

Small drives and motors with a power output of up to 3 kW are frequently used in control technology and machine
design. In the process, sometimes both rotational directions (forward/reverse) need to be controlled and the drives have to be protected against possible errors. Also, it must be ensured that they can be reliably and safely shut off through an external Emergency Stop function (SIL 3 / PL e) in the event of a breakdown.

Advantages at a glance

-    Space savings
Due to its very narrow design (width: 22.5 mm), use of the
MOTUS® IO-Link can deliver space savings
of up to 75% compared to conventional starter combinations.

-    Life span
The combination of robust relay technology and
wear-free semiconductor switching gives the
MOTUS® IO-Link a product lifespan that is
10 times longer than conventional contactors.

-    Time savings
The significant reduction in wiring requirements during
the installation of a MOTUS® IO-Link
results in time savings of up to 80 % compared to conventional
device combinations.

Product description



CrossBoard®: the new basic System

The CrossBoard® is available in widths of 225 mm up to 1100 mm, which can be combined in any way.

Quick and easy done

The basic system consists of the CrossBoard®, the feed modules, a large number of adapters, the NH fuse switch-disconnector, the powersupply as well as the hybrid motor starters and hybrid switches.

The new out of the box system solution

With the CrossBoard®, Wöhner has established a whole new system that combines the advantages of a high-performance busbar system with traditional wiring on DIN mounting rails. The CrossBoard® is an out-of-the-box system that is supplied in one complete unit. It can be directly assembled and fitted with components after unpacking. This innovative solution saves time and costs. The integrated touch-safe protection allows you to work live in compliance with the applicable regulations and legislation.

The CrossBoard® with its all-round touch-safe protection offers a high degree of safety. This lets you realise power distribution systems in accordance with the IEC 61439 and UL 508 standard, including IP20 touch-safe protection.

The CrossBoard® is an out-of-the-box system that saves the user a lot of time on mounting. Unpack, snap on to the DIN rail and immediately begin fitting the components.

The components are simply snapped on to the CrossBoard®, meaning the connection is automatic. The integrated polarity protection prevents errors during installation.

The components can be fitted to the CrossBoard®, as well as to conventional busbar systems such as 60Classic or 30Compact using CrossLink® adapters.
As a universal system, CrossBoard® is also open for components from other manufacturers.

Two boards one mission

CrossBoard®225 (22,5 × 16 cm) and CrossBoard®405 (40,5 × 16 cm)

Mounting the CrossBoard® and components

The CrossBoard® is supplied as an out-of-the-box system and can be clicked on DIN mounting rails either high (35 × 15 mm) or flat (35 × 7.5 mm).

The CrossBoard® can be screwed directly to a mounting plate. Matching holes make mounting easier.

The components can be easily snapped onto the CrossBoard® with no tools. This means both the mechanical attachment as well as the electrical connection are accomplished in one operation. The integrated polarity protection prevents errors during installation.

The components can be easily removed and snapped back on to another section of the CrossBoard®. For safety reasons, the lock mechanism must be released with a screwdriver. This prevents accidental removal of any components.
