Softstart UK has just newly designed and built specifically for two UK clients one in Oil and Gas and the other in Mining a Medium Voltage, Digital Soft Starter, Motor Control Centre (MCC). As a success of the projects Softstart UK is proud to introduce its MV Digital Starter unit.
The New MV Digital Starter has been designed around the standard European style MCC, therefore having a short lead time from time from order to a fully assembled system typically less than 8 weeks. The units are available from 11,000VAC up to 700A and have the option of switch fuse disconnect or load break switches.
The MV-DS has an optional PLC and a touch screen HMI to allow for programming, diagnostics and data event recording. The graphical interface of the IPC allows the operator to see statistical data such as last start time, current, power and more. Having a PLC makes the system flexible and expandable allowing for multiple options to be used to suit any application. As an option the MV Digital Starter can come with a 12.1inch colour touch screen HMI with Ethernet although an optional 15.1inch version is available. The HMI is multi-lingual and already supports English, Arabic, Farsi and Russian characters.
The Medium Voltage sections are isolated from the Low Voltage section of the MV-DS and is fibre optic for the Thyristor gate firing control.
The Vacuum Line contactors can be supplied as fused with shuttered disconnect. All Medium Voltage components comply with IEC 62271-200, IEC 60470 and UL 327.
