Carlo Gavazzi RSQK Series high power intelligent soft starts

Carlo Gavazzi says these soft starts decreases the “wear and tear” on mechanical transmission components (such as belts) and assures the reduction of high starting currents and of mechanical stress on gears, shafts and pulleys. The company says this is due to a smooth and step-less acceleration and deceleration. While Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) have a strong market share in the low power range (0.5 to 5HP), the company says its RSQK soft starts are the perfect solution for industrial applications in higher power range (>100Hp). The RSQK Series features are well suited for applications such as controlling large pumps, fans and mixers in 200-500 HP range, that generally require only a limited number of starts and stops.
