The SI-DST (DriveStart) is an IGBT-based medium-voltage soft starter. It is the first of its kind and has been optimized for applications that require the lowest possible mains load through correspondingly reduced starting currents with a high motor torque at the same time. The state-of-the-art technology of the soft starter allows the motors to be started with extremely low mains currents and mains loads that are second to none. In most cases, the mains load is lower than when operating with the nominal motor current. This ensures safe start-up of the most demanding applications.
Industry around the world benefits from our extensive experience in the design and manufacture of systems that optimize the starting of large electric motors, even under the most difficult conditions. The added value that we create for our customers is unsurpassed, and with the two DriveStart soft starters, the Solcon-IGEL Group presents a unique and innovative product that significantly expands the uses and applications of soft starters and represents a cost-effective alternative to frequency converter drives.
