Hall 11, Stand B36

Product description

The DriveStart is optimized for applications that require a low starting current and/or a high starting torque.
* Providing solution for applications which do not require motor speed and/or torque control during operation, but where SCR-based soft starting is impractical
* Starting current at nominal motor current or lower
* Integrated bypass function using a specialized synchronization system
* Soft Start and Soft Stop
* Starting capacity of 100% of full load current for up to 600 seconds

Saving costs, energy and space while meeting top performance requirements.
* Significantly lower price point than a Medium Voltage VFD, yet providing similar soft start and soft stop features
* Integrated bypass ensures no energy loss during operation, reducing energy waste and operational costs
* Streamlined design translating to at least 50% reduction in space requirements vs. a VFD with comparable performance
