- The Solcon MV DriveStart provides significant technical innovation for starting medium voltage motors with a starting current lower than the rated motor current and torque up to 160 % of nominal torque. This technology allows an almost infinite number of starts and substantial energy savings during startup and operation of the motor.
Technological innovations have had a hugely beneficial effect in modern industry. As such, service providers in some quarters are moving toward challenging the traditional mainstream solutions or indeed complimenting them by enhancing what they do through specialised products and services.
At CSE Uniserve, we are a specialist solutions provider and have an established presence across the country and around the world. We are committed to fostering new relationships that we believe can lead to positive change for industry and specifically, our customers. Established products such as the Solcon soft starter range make up an important part of what we can offer industry, however, we are very much committed to providing a comprehensive range of solutions to our clients.
We believe that rather than simply offer a catalogue of products from one brand, that choice of technology is imperative for our customer base, and so to complement the well-known names we continue to supply, our team of highly-skilled engineers are here to create solutions that are designed to meet your specific needs. We are a high-skilled, multi-faceted team with in-depth knowledge and experience in:
- Installation & Commissioning
- Communications network engineering services for critical infrastructure
- LV and MV Advanced motor starting and speed control
- Power quality solutions for LV and MV applications
- Planned and reactive Servicing with our factory trained and supported Services team.
What a soft starter is used for
Depending on the kind of motor being used, large amounts of energy may be required when starting is needed. Variable frequency drives and soft starters are used to reduce power consumption, reduce power costs, reduce strain on other components and extend the life of a motor / machine.
However, while it may appear that they do the same thing and are interchangeable, this is not the case and there are a few points worth noting about soft starters that differentiate its operational functionality and capability.
Soft starters are only used at motor start-up and are designed to ease the motor toward full speed in a much less taxing fashion. For this reason, they are often referred to as an RVSS or a Reduced Voltage Soft Starter. The idea is that they limit the large initial inrush of current associated with motor start-up and therefore prevent damage to AC electric motors.
Soft starters are solid-state devices that are usually used only in applications that require torque and speed control. Soft starters are effective where a mechanical system needs to relieve the tension associated with start-up and in order to also reduce the effect and possibility of torque spikes. Offering extremely robust and reliable motor starting, Soft Starters are very popular in pumping and other straightforward starting applications where longevity and reliability are paramount.
Global quality standards
At CSE Uniserve, we believe in technical competence and customer-focused service that meets our global quality standards. We meet a wide range of demands in terms of power system protection, automation and data management applications across a variety of industry. What’s more, we continue to develop high-value relationships with our customers and build upon the solid foundations we work toward establishing from the start.
As such, we hope that when you need a solution to separate your company from the rest in your field, you will seek out CSE Uniserve.
