RVS-DN - For the Most Demanding Applications

Solcon's robust RVS-DN (950A, 690V) was selected to replace a brand new soft starter that was unable to start a Scrap Metal Hammer Mill at J. Syrjanen Oy, a metal recycling plant. Our long time partner, Beijer Electronics, Finland, installed an RVS-DN that started the 15 ton application on the first try. The starting requirements were 65 seconds, 450% nominal current.

The RVS-DN is a heavy duty, advanced, highly reliable Soft Starter. It is designed to operate under severe conditions starting the most demanding applications in the industry. The RVS-DN is also available with Marine and UL/cUL approvals. Advanced features such as pump control, slow speed, electronic reverse and enhanced motor protection make it one of Solcon's best and most popular soft starters.
