Control Diagram:

How does the circuit Work:

Step: 1

  1. Here MCB uses to control the input supply into the circuit.
  2. OLR NO uses to protect the power circuit
  3. We can switch off the circuit by using OFF the push button
  4. SSW- Selector Switch Select any one of the position (Local or Remote or DCS)
  5. Local- Control the starter from panel push button, Remote – Control from motor/Load near control panel and DCS- Distributed Control System – Controls from PC
  6. K3 contactor work as Contact multiplier.
  7. K3 NO1, K3 NO3 and KO NO2 work as Potential free contact.

Step: 2

  1. Build or construct the Control circuit as shown in the figure
  2. Do commissioning on control circuit (first check control circuit)
  3. Once completed, Make Power connection.
  4. Take Trail
  5. Enjoy ……
