Both Solcon Industries and Igel Electric have been providing robust, reliable solutions to the Mining Industry since 1977. Designed specifically for harsh environments, SolconIGEL’s soft starters are unique in their ability to endure and to remain highly reliable in the most extreme temperatures and challenging environmental conditions, including temperatures of up to 60°C, 95% humidity and a corrosive atmosphere. The group offers a variety of products for severe, heavy and standard duty applications that include pumps,
ventilation fans, conveyors, crushers, and blowers, for which they control the current and torque of the starting motors. With their complete soft starting system and protection package, SolconIGEL’s products increase the life expectancy of the motor and greatly reduce the need for unpredicted maintenance of both the motors and the connected infrastructure, while enabling end users to comply with the stringent Power Utility supply restrictions of mines.
