MV Soft Starters

When starting a motor, a soft starter device is the mechanism which enables a gentle acceleration of the motor up to full speed. It is typically used with AC electrical motors to temporarily reduce the load and torque in the powertrain and electric current surge of the motor during the start-up phase. A soft starter continuously controls the motor’s voltage supply during start-up, adjusting to the machine’s load behaviour and ensuring mechanical operating equipment is accelerated smoothly. This lengthens service life of the motor, improves operating behaviour, and smooths out workflows.

The Solcon range of soft starters available from CSE Uniserve are optimised for applications that require a low starting current and/or a high starting torque. They minimise the effect of high in-rush current and mechanical torque shock, and also reduce motor heat at the starting phase, enabling the use of standard motors.

The Solcon range of soft starters also reduce peak network demand and save costs, energy and space while meeting top performance requirements. Integrated bypass protects against energy loss during operation, optimises energy efficiency and reduces operational costs. The Solcon range is user friendly, with simple installation. Synchronous motor starting is achieved utilising Solcon’s unique module, and the range includes innovative Low Voltage test modes. Advanced features include customisable starting curves, unique voltage and current measurements, as well as monitoring capabilities. Flexible configurations are designed to meet the requirements of new applications, retrofits and OEM customisation.
