What is an EVERLINK connection and what are its advantages?
TESYS Everlink contactor
TeSys Everlink is an enhancement to Schneider Electric's motor starter solutions, offering combinations of 2 or 3 products for creating motor starters up to 65 A.
TeSys Everlink contactors (all with the same dimensions) are available in 3 ratings:
40 A, part number LC1D40Axx
50 A, part number LC1D50Axx
65 A, part number LC1D65Axx
Associated thermal overload relays
LRD3xx thermal overload relays, which can be installed directly on any of these 3 contactors, have significantly lower ratings than those of Everlink contactors, meaning that these relays can be used for applications with lower power ratings.
These relays are rated as follows:
25-40 A adapted to LC1D40Axx
37-50 A adapted to LC1D50Axx
48-65 A adapted to LC1D65Axx
They cannot be mounted directly underneath LC1D09 to LC1D38 contactors. Simply use the LA7D3064 kit for clipping onto a 35 mm mounting rail
Combining GV3Pxx and GV3Lxx circuit-breakers with LC1Dxxxxx contactors and LRD3xx thermal overload relays is a particularly quick, compact and safe solution.
Use of GV3P circuit-breakers (thermal-magnetic)
9-13 A, part number GV3P13
12-18 A, part number GV3P18
17-25 A, part number GV3P25
23-32 A, part number GV3P32
30-40 A, part number GV3P40
37-50 A, part number GV3P50
48-65 A, part number GV3P65
Use of GV3L circuit-breakers (magnetic)
25 A, part number GV3L25
32 A, part number GV3L32
40 A, part number GV3L40
50 A, part number GV3L50
65 A, part number GV3L60
Advantages of EVERLINK contactors
The Everlink fixing system ensures fixing without creep, as well as reduced heat loss at the connection points.
Shorter assembly time
Guaranteed quality of wiring
Continuity of service assured: No need for periodic re-tightening of terminals
Reduced dimensions in wall-mounted and floor-standing enclosures
Its removable terminal block allows the circuit-breaker and contactor to be linked vertically without an accessory, or horizontally using an S-shaped busbar. Wiring on the same rail can be completed in less than one minute!
