Drives, motion and control specialist Delta Electronics has formed a strategic partnership
with Softstart UK which combines the market leading products of Delta Electronics with the
unrivalled reach and experience of Softstart’s dedicated team of specialist automation
Delta’s automation capability is quality-driven, providing customers with cost-effective and reliable products. Delta’s innovation in development has delivered one of the broadest and most capable ranges of drives, motion and control products, along with associated technologies including switching power supplies, power management products, components, visual displays, networking products and complete industrial automation solutions.
Softstart UK has unrivalled experience in a wide range of industries, with a proven track record in all the multiple needs of the most demanding applications. This new partnership with Delta Electronics extends the Softstart portfolio, and brings the benefits of these innovative products to a raft of new markets.
Delta Electronics has manufacturing plants in China and Taiwan, and R&D centres, sales and service offices around the world, enabling it to meet the needs of the global market.
The company is probably the world’s biggest manufacturer of variable speed drives by volume, with innovative new designs emerging constantly to keep the products at the cutting edge of technology. In addition, Delta’s researchers have pushed the boundaries of HMI technology to develop wide screen formats whilst at the same time reducing unit costs.
PLCs are available in a host of different formats and capabilities, including innovative slimline units that save on valuable panel space without compromising performance. Delta is also a recognised world leader in power supplies.
A cost-effective, classical field oriented drive, the C2000 sets the bar high in features and benefits, including built-in PLC functionality, self diagnostics, long life design, CANOpen and Modbus communications. Standard models cover the power range from 0.75kW to 90kW at 230V AC, and 0.75kW to 355kW at 460V AC.
The CP2000 extends the benefits of the C2000 with a sensorless vector control algorithm, making it ideal for applications such as HVAC, constant pressure pumps, building automation, conveyors and materials handling.
For more demanding applications, such as food packaging, textiles and wood working machines, the C200 closes the loop to ensure high precision operation consistently over time. It is available in a wide range of different models to suit the needs of different industries, and has a built-in PLC.
The active front end of the AFE2000 replaces traditional brake resistors to provide massive energy savings, particularly in applications involving high speed, high inertia loads.
The VFD-E is a micro type multi-function drive that is packed with features and performance. It is suitable for side by side DIN rail mounting and covers powers up to 22kW.

Delta Human machine interfaces (HMIs)
Visual representation has long been proven to be the best way to understand a process or system. Delta’s range of HMIs allows this to be achieved on the shop floor or other industrial environment. Whether touch screen or push button, programming and resetting of the host machinery can be achieved locally using an HMI which if networked to the overall control system can provide a window into the complete production environment. Screen sizes are available from 3.5in to 10.4in, as blue scale and colour displays, with resolutions up to 640x480 pixels. A USB port is provided for easy data transfer.
The DOP-B series all models adopt 65536 colours high-colour TFT touch panel with beautiful and new elements which make it easy to create the most colourful and perfect screens.
The DOP-TP series are available in a range of models up to a Max. 65536 colours high-colour TFT LCD display. Clear and realistic images and graphs can be easily created. The DOP-TP series comes with many expansion options and can be connected to different kinds of printers.
The DOP-B10 standard is 64k colour TFT screen with serial and USB interfaces and SDHC Card. The DOP-B10 is equipped with LED backlights free from eco-problems by mercury contamination, which saves energy and reduces carbon dioxide emissions. The DOP-B10 Ethernet type is also available with Ethernet and audio onboard.
Delta Programmable logic controllers (PLCs)
Modern production processes run at ever higher speeds as companies look to boost productivity. This leads to a need for thousands of instructions to be executed every second. The only technology that can achieve this is the PLC. Delta has a wide and flexible range of PLCs, each of which can be customised to bespoke applications such as motion control, product counting, colour recognition and temperature monitoring.
Delta Power supplies
Delta is the world’s largest
manufacturer of power supplies. Offering
several distinct ranges, the company can meet
every need of every industry.
Power supplies are available with nominal output voltages of 24V and 12V DC, and they operate over wide temperature ranges from -20°C to +75°C. Delta ensures they are ruggedly built to withstand shock and vibration to IEC 60068-2, yet are ultra compact. The power supplies provide over voltage, over load and thermal protection. The wide input voltages range from 85-264V AC (single phase) and 320-575V AC (three phase).
