Experience the Evolution of Starters - Hannover Messe 2014
DriveStart The response to the products we exhibited at Hannover Messe, one of the largest technology and industrial conferences in the world, was overwhelming!

During the show we launched the DriveStart, a brand new, first of its kind IGBT based Medium Voltage Soft Starter, presented the ProGear, our fully Type Tested Arc Resistant Medium Voltage Soft Starter Switchgear, and displayed the newly designed iStart, Solcon's flagship Low Voltage Softer Starter.

DriveStart - A revolutionary Medium Voltage starting solution optimized for applications that require a low starting current and/or a high starting torque. A cost effective solution for applications where only Medium Voltage Drives were applicable until now.

ProGear - Fully Type Tested Arc Resistant Medium Voltage Soft Starter Switchgear according to IEC 62271-200. Its advanced space saving design provides front, lateral and rear arc protection to prevent arc flash injury without compromising performance.

iStart - A complete Low Voltage Soft Starting Solution designed with you in mind. Easy to commission and simple to operate, its advanced features set it apart from other products in the market.

The show was a great opportunity for the Solcon team to meet our existing global partners, and also reach out to potential new clients. We were able to forge some great new strategic relationships and plant the seeds for potential partnerships.

To those of you who came by, thanks for making Hannover Messe a great success! We hope to see you again next year. The next innovations are already in the works!

DriveStart Launch
DriveStart The official DriveStart Launch Event took place in our booth at Hannover Messe 2014, where we were joined to toast Solcon's accomplishment by many of our new and long time partners and customers. Mr. Ofir Goren, Solcon's CEO, presented the features and benefits of the system as well as its significant value proposition for the end user.

"It was terrific to be surrounded by so many familiar faces and a great many new ones at the DriveStart launch event. It was a pleasure to celebrate such an exciting milestone among friend "said Izzi Eicher VP Sales at Solcon."I believe this is the first step in a process which will impact the market and benefit the industry. It's going to be an exciting year for the entire team!"

The DriveStart, an IGBT based Medium Voltage Soft Starter, answers a key market need that has been unanswered up until now. Traditionally, a VFD is used to start applications that require a low starting current and/or a high starting torque 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 with the aim of supplying our customers with a product that alleviates the need to spend more than necessary on solutions that exceed their needs. The 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 compared to a Medium Voltage Variable Frequency Drive (VFD).
