Soft starters are essential pieces of equipment for motor control that are cost-effective and time-savers. Most are used for fan and pump controls, but some applications can be unique to a particular problem.
Solcon’s DriveStart is an IGBT-based medium voltage soft starter designed for applications that have a higher starting torque requirement and need a low starting current. The soft starter is able to bring down costs related to operations thanks to its robust design. When compared to a medium voltage VFD, the starter is much more economical and provides the same number of features.
