Control cabinet

The KLARO control cabinet meets the basic requirements of Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, EMC Directive 2014/30/EU and Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU, based on application of harmonised standards. All the connectors are fitted and pre-wired in such a way that the cabinet is ready for connection to the on-site power supply system. All the aforementioned electrical components are arranged in the cabinet so as to ensure that they are shock-proof. The valves and compressor are controlled and monitored from here.

Control cabinet

1. Control cabinet with main switch


2. Motor overload switch:
If current consumption is too high, the motor overload switch trips. The tripping current is adjusted to the current consumption of the specific compressor. It also serves as short-circuit protection.


3. Soft-starter:
The soft-starter permits slow switch-on of motor voltage. This reduces mechanical and electrical loads on the compressor. This is beneficial for minimising gearbox, bearing and carbon vane wear.


4. Board:
For receiving and transmitting the 24V control signals.


5. Terminal:
Feed cable.


6. Controller KL40plus and KLplus:
More information here.


7. Main switch:
This switch is used to disconnect all phases of the plant from the power supply.

Controllers

Controllers


KLARO offers proprietary, sophisticated controllers, which are widely popular in the branch of industry. The devices have been constantly further developed and improved by us over the years, though the structure and the concept has been retained. The controllers are easily understandable, very user-friendly and available in 11 different languages.
