Eaton DE1 VFD

Product Description

Eaton’s PowerXL® DE1 variable speed starter offers the advantages of both a motor starter and a variable frequency drive in a single device. The DE1 is a compact and easy-to-use device with

the ability to change the speed of the motor with the simplicity of a contactor starter. With 14 basic parameters, SmartWire-DT® connectivity and an intuitive configuration module, the DE1 setup and commissioning is easy for any panel builder and MOEM. The DE1 was designed for customers who have concerns of the complexity of a VFD but still require variable frequency and advanced motor protection.
