MV SOFT STARTERS

mv soft starter by VP alscottSoft-Starters accelerate, decelerate and protect three-phase induction motors. Controlling the voltage applied to the motor by adjusting the firing angle of thyristors allows the soft-starter to start & stop an electric motor smoothly.

Until now, the Soft Starter Industry was defined by a fairly limited range of products. The current rating of most manufacturer's offerings are limited to less than 1000A (typically ranging between 100-800A).

VP Alscott has changed the game by introducing its new line of Soft Starters with standard designs rated up to 48MW.

The new Medium Voltage Soft Starter takes this technology to another level.

QUALITY PRODUCTS AT COMPETITIVE PRICES

Saving energy, space and money 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
  • Peak demand reduction
  • Streamlined design translating to at least 50% reduction in space requirements vs. a VFD with comparable performance
