Low Voltage, High Current
Solcon RVS-DN

For shipyards around the world Solcon's RVS-DN continues to be the soft starter of choice for Low Voltage, High Current applications. The RVS-DN has the widest range of any Low Voltage soft starter in the world, available in 31 models,10 frame sizes, and rated up to 3000A, 220-690V. The RVS-DN can be supplied in a Low Voltage cabinet and has earned certification and approvals from: RINA, RMRS, DNV, Lloyds and Germanischer Lloyds.

Solcon recently supplied a major international Marine integrator with a number of RVS-DN units designed to start the Bow Thrusters on Platform Supply Vessels (PSV). The RVS-DN (rated: 1800A, 690V) was commissioned to start the 1,800 kW motor while limiting the current in order to reduce the size of the generator and the cables required. The Low Voltage Cabinet custom designed made to fit the physical constraints and electrical specifications set by the customer. Solcon also supplied control and monitoring capabilities of ancillary equipment as part of the Solcon Soft Starter solution.

Solcon has over 35 years of experience designing and manufacturing market leading soft starter solutions and specializes in the Marine Industry. We know that reliability and performance are a main concern for our customers and therefore we engineer our starting solutions accordingly. The robust design of the RVS-DN adheres to the highest standards, withstands severe environmental conditions, and endures vibrations while maintaining motor uptime. With advanced features, a comprehensive motor protection package and soft start and stop start functionalities the RVS-DN is one of the best and most popular soft starters in the industry.

We will be exhibiting the RVS-DN at Hannover Messe. Please visit us to learn more about RVS-DN starting solutions for Marine, Mining and other Heavy Duty Applications.
