V5 series Soft Starter

An advanced digital soft starter that offers users a complete motor starting solution. The V5 series provides multiple control possibilities, due not only to a large number of inputs and outputs, but also for their configuration versatility. Available from 2.2kW to 1500kW, 230 - 690VAC three phase, either internally bypassed or non bypassed.

The V5 digital soft starter integrates the most advanced control systems to ensure perfect motor operation for any industrial application. With onboard protections, a 32 character two line LCD plain English display and Power Electronics revolutionary "CDP" dynamic torque control this soft starter offers uncompromised performance.
