Solcon Industries is launching the second generation of DriveStart, its highly successful IGBT-based medium-voltage soft starter line. DriveStart has been successfully implemented in diverse applications such as pumps, wind tunnels, gas compressors, vacuum blowers and sugar cane crushers. It prevents stress on weak electrical networks that require high torque/inertia starts and is a viable solution when commercial cost is a challenge.
“The new generation is designed to reduce costs even further, saving both energy and space while meeting demanding performance requirements. DriveStart2 delivers higher ratings and voltage – up to 11kV and 18.5MVA,” explained Solcon Industries CEO Itai Zifroni.
