Many applications within the pulp & paper industry, including chippers, pumps, shredders and re-pulpers can benefit from the use of a soft starter.
Reduced start current and gentle acceleration result in smoother operation and minimise mechanical and electrical stress on the system. More advanced features, such as instantaneous overcurrent, PowerThrough, and the motor thermal model protect equipment and maximise productivity.
For a more in-depth look at the advantages soft start provides pulp & paper applications, see our infographic here.
