Ampgard, the name motor applications rely on

Eaton has been an industry leader for more than 50 years, providing UL 347 certified medium-voltage control. When it comes to controlling and protecting medium-voltage motors, the Ampgard family is the premier high-performance choice.

Money saving double-bus design

When close-coupling Ampgard starters with medium-voltage drives for synchronous transfer applications the double bus eliminates external cables and associated accessories required to connect motor-select and bypass starters. Material and labor savings can be upwards of $25,000 for a four-motor system.

Remote operator for enhanced safety

The Ampgard Remote Operator (ARO) for the starter isolation switch that, when mounted on the front of the starter allows personnel to safely open and close the switch from outside the arc flash boundary.

Integrated control gear streamlines multi-configuration lineups

Compact and economical solution combining Eaton’s Ampgard main breaker and motor starters with the SC9000 medium-voltage drive across a common bus in a single high quality, integrated assembly. Entire assembly is available as arc-resistant.
