Optimized for applications that require a low starting current and/or a high starting torque

  • Provides full torque start
  • Starts at nominal motor current or lower
  • Enables motor starting from weak electrical networks
  • Reduces motor heat at start enabling use of standard motors
  • Reduces peak network demand

Saving costs, energy and space while meeting top performance requirements

  • More economical than a Medium Voltage VFD, yet provides similar soft start and soft stop features
  • Integrated bypass protects against energy loss during operation, optimizes energy efficiency and reduces operational costs
  • Streamlined design drastically reduces the footprint requirements

Technical Specifications

  • Input voltage – Up to 6.6kV 50/60Hz +10% -15
  • Power range – Up to 6.6kV, 8.5MVA
  • Mains starting current – 10% to 120% of motor rated current
  • Numerous number of starts
  • Starting torque – Up to 160% of motor rated torque
  • Internal synchronization system (bypass), from DriveStart to mains and back
  • Soft Start and Soft Stop
  • Multi-start capabilities
  • Electronic Potential Current Transformer (ECPT) voltage and current measurements via fiber optics
  • Integrated Data Logger and wave form capture for all major system signals including current and voltage for remote diagnostics and failure analysis
