FCMA Soft Starter - Line Side Soft Starter

MV Soft Starters - Line Side Model (3-3.5Ifl*)

  • FCMAplus soft starters are air-core based series reactors as per IEC 60076-6 and IS555-3 that provide a complete starting solution for any motor application (pumps, compressors, fans etc.)
  • FCMAplus soft starter panels are designed specific to each motor, analyzing motor and load torque speed curves, current speed, and moment of inertia. Starting current can be typically reduced to 3-3.5Ifl* (Full Load Current)
  • Line side soft starters are connected on the motor supply side and are provided with a bypass device (vacuum contactor or vacuum circuit breaker) of customer preferred make
  • When required by the customer, we can offer a VCB panel with MPR and metering for switching the motor
  • We use a closed loop control using a PLC to control the starter operation
  • We always ensure motor acceleration torque should be over 10 percent than load to ensure healthy acceleration within the thermal withstand time of the motor
  • MV FCMAplus soft starters are upto 80% cheaper than an electronic soft starter while providing flexible reduced voltage starting

*These are typical starting current values based on design and customer experience. Actual measurement may vary based on actual site condition.
