Electromechanical contactors and motor starters are pivotal components in electrical control systems, primarily used for the reliable operation and protection of electric motors.
Contactors: They are robust, high-capacity electrical switches that control the flow of electricity to the motor, serving as an interface between the control circuit and the power circuit. They are designed for heavy-duty applications and are crucial in starting, stopping, and reversing motor operations.
Motor starters: They often incorporate contactors and additional protective features like overload relays. These starters are responsible for initiating and regulating the motor's operation, providing a safe and controlled startup, and safeguarding the motor against overcurrent and overheating.
Electromechanical contactors and motor starters are vital for ensuring the efficient and safe operation of electric motors across various industrial, commercial, and residential applications, contributing to both productivity and motor longevity while enhancing overall electrical system safety.
IS/IEC 60947 (Part-4): Sec 1 is an important standard for manufacturers of electromechanical contactors and motor starters. Compliance with IS/IEC 60947 (Part-4): Sec 1 helps manufacturers meet these legal requirements and ensures that their products adhere to industry-specific regulations. Adherence to these standards ensures that electromechanical contactors and motor starters are of high quality and reliability. These standards define testing procedures to assess the performance of contactors and motor starters under different conditions.
Note: Manufacturers of electromechanical contactors and motor starters are required to obtain the mandatory BIS/CRS Registration to launch their products in the Indian market.
BIS/CRS Registration is a significant step aimed at ensuring that these devices conform to established standards, enhancing their reliability and safety within electrical circuits. BIS certification involves comprehensive testing and evaluation procedures to verify that Electromechanical Contactors and Motor Starters meet the requisite standards, ultimately improving the safety and operational efficiency of motor-driven systems and equipment throughout the country. This certification is integral to India's commitment to consumer safety and product quality, upholding the highest standards for electrical components utilized in various sectors.
Bureau of Indian Standards is a statutory body in India responsible for the formulation and implementation of standards to ensure the quality and safety of various products. Under the BIS framework, there exists a scheme called CRS (Compulsory Registration Scheme), which mandates that certain categories of products must undergo mandatory registration and comply with specified quality and safety standards before they can be sold in the Indian market. This scheme was established in 2012 and has since played a crucial role in enhancing product quality and safety in India by ensuring that items such as electronics, appliances and automotive components meet the necessary standards before they reach consumers. BIS/CRS Registration is vital for market access, as it is a legal requirement for selling the product in India. Failure to obtain this registration can result in confiscation of goods and legal consequences. Therefore, manufacturers and importers need to be diligent in ensuring their products meet the necessary criteria.
