Our soft starters adopt patented technology to achieve significant reductions in starter current requirements.
RXPE has developed an innovative variable frequency starter (VFS) technology for soft start and soft stop applications. It achieves discrete frequency conversion and step-less voltage regulation through thyristor control. Start and stop control methods range from voltage inclination start to constant current start and soft stop to braking stop. Starters are precisely tailored to suit a machine’s load behaviour.
Our VFS technology can be applied to the soft start and soft stop of blowers, pumps, compressors and other high voltage three-phase AC induction motors or synchronous motors. It can also be used in applications requiring fixed frequency conversion speed regulation.
RXPE’s MV motor soft starters can output 12.5Hz, 25Hz and 50Hz frequencies. They achieve a lower starting current with higher starting torque by controlling the voltage-frequency ratio of the motor.
