Experience the Evolution of Soft Starters
DriveStart Solcon Industries introduces the DriveStart, the first of its kind IGBT Based Medium Voltage Soft Starter optimized for applications that require a low starting current and/or a high starting torque. Its cutting edge design allows for a significant savings in costs, energy and space while meeting high demand application requirements.

"Compared to a Medium Voltage Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), Solcon's new DriveStart provides Soft Start and Soft Stop features at a significantly lower price, with at least a 50% reduction in space requirements and a considerable decrease in energy waste and operational costs" says Mr. Ofir Goren CEO of Solcon. "Traditionally, a VFD is used even if its full functionality of motor speed and/or torque control during steady state operation is unnecessary. The DriveStart was created specifically for these types of applications; our aim being to supply our customers with a product that alleviates the need to spend more than necessary on solutions that exceed their needs."

Online Training Webinars
Solcon's Sales and Engineering Departments held two online training webinars for our Latin American partners. The first session concentrated on Solcon's Medium Voltage Soft Starters and the second covered our Low Voltage Soft Starter product line. The webinars were broadcast to over 20 locations across Latin America and were very successful.

"Whatever the requirements may be, webinars present a highly effective way of delivering training. Through a webinar our partners gain direct access to Solcon's top experts from the comfort of their own computer" says Izzi Eicher, VP Sales at Solcon. "Moving forward, we will be holding additional training and educational sessions to which all our partners will be invited to attend."
