Soft Starter facilitates energy efficient induction motor operation.

Based on DSP control, WEG SSW07 soft starter provides both low inertia start and high breakaway torque load start, and limits initial voltage drop while avoiding high current spikes or inrush current. Built-in bypass minimizes power losses and heat dissipation in thyristors and operates at ambient temperatures up to 55°C without down grading or current reduction. With 1.3-5 kg weight, unit...

Motor and Drive offer efficiency better than NEMA Premium.

With outputs from 20-200 hp, WMagnet Motor/Drive Packages offer efficiencies of 95-97%. Motors use rare earth permanent magnets in rotor to limit temperature rise during operation. Utilizing vector control technology algorithm, CFW-09 drive enables control without use of encoder/position sensor. As synchronous motor, WMagnet cannot be started directly from power supply because accurate...
