Industrial Automation and Control

Variable Speed Drives and Soft Starters

Schneider Electric offers a wide range offer of fully tested and ready-to-connect motor control solutions including Variable speed drive and soft starters. Starting from compact, pre-engineered systems up to custom-engineered complex solutions. These solutions are developed to the highest quality level; manufactured according to your needs to fit a wide range of applications and fit all market segments. A variable speed drive is an automation component that controls and regulates the speed and rotational force, or torque output, of an electric motor. Variable speed drives change the way mechanical movement-oriented processes such as packaging, material handling, material working and hoisting are managed. Control of mechanical movements relies heavily on drive technologies with the ability to start and stop motors rapidly, with sufficient fluxing and motor current, and with the ability to repeat tasks during a given process. Precise control of mechanical movements utilising variable speed drives helps to increase efficiency, connectivity, repeatability and maintenance.

Soft Starters

We have a wide range of soft starters at Schneider Electric, so whether you’re looking for soft starters for pumps and fans or asynchronous motors, we’ll have the piece of tech you need. The Altistart range of soft starters delivers an extensive coverage of functions and motor control up to 1200kW. The range is designed to meet the needs of the customer from simple contactor style solid state devises up to full Patented Torque Control thyristor devices. Our Soft Starters are designed to the highest quality level to cover a wide range of applications: industrial processes, machines or buildings. Protect your business installations by adding soft starters and stop units into the mix. Ideal for pumps, fans, compressors and conveyors, this handy piece of tech will help minimise jolts and shocks, reduce any mechanical stress on your machinery and increase the overall service life of your installations. Our soft starters are safe products which offer a number of different integrated functions such as protection devices for checking the monitor, and coated cards as standard for a greater resistance to harsh environments.
