Solcon Industries completed the successful installation and commissioning of this 6kV, 750A multi-start DriveStart system for two compressors at an oxygen plant in Russia. The largest starting current was 666A and the start period was 43 sec.
Solcon’s DriveStart is the first IGBT-based Medium Voltage Soft Starter that is optimized for applications that require a low starting current and/or a high starting torque (heavy loads). The DriveStart prevents motor overheating as well as mechanical wear and tear. The DriveStart excels at saving space and energy usage while meeting top performance requirements. The DriveStart integrated bypass contactor is immediately synchronized and closed after the initial starting process is complete.
