Taking Variable Frequency Drives to a new level of applications  

The DriveStart is the first of its kind IGBT based Medium Voltage Soft Starter, optimized for applications that require low starting current and/or a high starting torque. The cutting-edge design results in significant savings in costs, energy and space while meeting high demand application requirements.

When compared to a Medium Voltage Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), Solcon’s new DriveStart provides Soft Start and Soft Stop features at a significantly lower price, with at least a 50% reduction in space requirements and a considerable decrease in energy waste and operational costs. Traditionally, a VFD (variable frequency drive) is used even if its full functionality of motor speed and/or torque control during steady-state operation is unnecessary. The DriveStart was developed specifically for these types of applications; thus, being able to supply our customers with a product that alleviates the need to spend more than necessary on solutions that exceed their needs.
