MVE Medium Voltage Soft Starter






Powerful and reliable

The MVE soft starter is a powerful and reliable solution for your medium voltage motor starting requirements. With our complete class E2 starter, MVE will get your motor running.

Available in NEMA 1, NEMA 12, NEMA 3R and outdoor rated enclosures, MVE comes as a fully-finished cabinet including load break disconnect, in-line vacuum contactor, as well as built-in motor overload protection.

In addition to standard packages we can supply custom cabinets to deliver a complete line-up that meets your requirements.

 



Safer and easier to use

Low voltage circuits are fully isolated from the medium voltage power electronics, using a high quality fibre-optic connection.

To simplify commissioning, MVE supports testing with a low voltage motor to fully test power and control circuits, and configuration and signalling can be tested using the built-in simulation modes.

MVE's phase arms have been designed for maximum versatility in installation. For common ratings, power terminations can be made at either the top or bottom of the input and output busbars.

Modular design means each phase arm is separate, and can be individually removed for maintenance if required.



Take control from the start

Medium voltage installations are complex enough without making the starter hard to use as well. MVE is packed with features designed to make your life easier, including real language feedback messages, so you don't have to look up codes to know what's happening.






Knowledge is power

We don't just get you started, we're commited to keeping you running smoothly too. Our dedicated diagnostic tools simplify support and maintenance.

Built-in monitoring and indicators, and extensive on-board input and output functionality reduce the needs for space and cost of auxiliary equipment, while simplifying installation. Real-time graphs of motor operating performance and current quickly and clearly illustrate exactly how your motor is performing. No fuss, no trouble - a smoother start in every sense.






Detailed event log

The 99-place event log records time-stamped details of operation and performance, making it easier than ever to track how your motor is performing.

Analysis software

Logs can be viewed directly on the controller, or can be downloaded from the starter for offline analysis using AuCom's Trip and Event Logger Software.

Waveform recording

Installations with challenging electrical environments also benefit from our purpose designed diagnostic board, which records waveforms that can help diagnose conditions interfering with operation.
