Features and benefits

Easy connectivity for the soft starter to EtherNet/IP-based networks, such as Rockwell PLC systemsPanel space can be saved due to the compact sizeInstallation costs are minimized and power loss eliminated thanks to the built-in bypassMore starts per hour and a higher load is possible as a result of advanced SCR Control Algorithms that balance output waveformOverall project investment is reduced due to essential motor protectionsNo external cooling or oversizing is necessary thanks to the maximum ambient temperature of 50°C without derating.
