With a unique combination of features, performance and size, Motortronics has redefined the benchmark for soft starter design.
The incorporation of Motortronics’ unique iERS technology allows VMX-synergy™ to deliver unrivalled soft start performance alongside energy saving capability on partially loaded motors.
With product size and cabinet capacity becoming an increasing focus we developed VMX-synergy™ to deliver the greatest power to size ratio of any other soft starter.
In addition VMX-synergy™ uses Motortronics’ globally renowned Automatic Setup feature which allows the user to programme the unit to any common application using a simple 4 step process. To keep pace with the modern technology, VMX-synergy™ removes the need for buttons and uses intuitive touch screen technology.
- Ease of Use: The display will show all messages in full and 14 different global languages. The use of graphic/schematic images will facilitate complete understanding. Detailed logging will aid setup and onboard USB will allow configurations to be upload/downloaded and emailed.
- Touch Screen: Colour Touch screen on all versions.
- Plug n Play: The soft starter will ‘tune’ itself to the load.
- Auto Set Up: The automatic functionality has been expanded so that more features can be configured without referring to parameter lists.
- Optimising: Energy optimising is combined with bypass to give energy saving in more applications.
- Serviceability: Field replaceable fans.
- 2 Year Warranty: This is made economically viable by the comprehensive logging features, so fault conditions can be easily identified.
VMX – synergy™ – Redefining Soft Starters
Variable Speed Drives are not needed in all applications, with fixed speed loads, a soft starter is a better as well as more economical solution.
