Lecon commissioned a FCMA plus soft starter with Dynamic Compensator inside an operator cabin of rope shovel rated 560kW at 6.6kV
Industry: Open Cast Coal Mines
Segment: Heavy Earth Moving Equipment
Application: Rope Shovel
Lecon Engineers took up the challenge and came up with a unique design of the FCMAplus Soft Starter Panel and Dynamic Compensator panel that enabled both the panels to be accommodated inside the Rope Shovel.
Lecon’s biggest technical challenge was to keep the FCMAplus Soft Starter and Dynamic Compensator panel inside the rope shovel as limited space was available.
Customer requested to limit the starting current to 1.5 times the full load current.
Lecon had to rely on customer provided specifications as no motor data sheet was available.
Lecon successfully design, manufactured and commissioned FCMAplus Soft Starter Panel with Starting current of 1.5Ifl.
Lecon matched the customer’s requirements and specifications and earned a strong stamp of approval from the customer for managing to provide a solution given the dimensional challenges.
