    TeSys U

    An all-in-one motor starter that combines thermal & magnetic protection, switching and contactor in a single product

    TeSys U is one of the most compact motor starters on the market. It covers main motor applications (direct on line, reversers and drive protection) from 0 to 15 kW (0 to 32 A) ensuring a breaking capacity of 50 kA with total coordination (according to IEC 60947-6-2).

    TeSys U
    • Features

      Only 45 mm wide, the TeSys U all-in-one motor starter delivers a compact device to protect and control motors for forward and reverse direction. It can provide different tripping class (class 10, class 20 or class 5 to 30).

      With different plug and play modules, TeSys U can provide you:

      Simple, efficient, modular and compact, the TeSys U motor starter adapts to a wide range of applications. It is one of the first intelligent starters capable of integrating motor control, control and changeover functions in a unit 45 mm wide. The device provides short circuit breaking capacity of 50 kA with perfect coordination.

      • Simple to Maintain: Modular, plug & play structure helps you to perform quick maintenance
      • Easy to Install and Use: Only 1 base plate & 4 control units up to 32 A
      • Efficient : Safe up to 45% of the time for installation and wiring
      • Flexible: Wire the starter completely in the workshop, define the motor on site with plugin of the control unit
      • Compact: Save up to 57% of cabinet space, reversing starter only 45 mm wide
      • Intelligent: Direct access to detailed information for every motor starter of your installation
      • Safe: Mirror contact as standard
      • Advanced: Advanced motor management


      TeSys U all-in-one motor starter is dedicated to direct on line (including reverser) motor control applications, and also variable speed drives or soft starters. Thanks to the high compactness, it can be well adapted to all types of machine builders. The strong communication capabilities, high breaking capacity and total coordination makes it highly suitable for process application.
