Carlo Gavazzi RSWT soft starters for pumping applications
July 7, 2016 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Jul. 7, 2016 – Carlo Gavazzi has launched its RSWT series, a self-optimizing 3-phase soft starting solution for water pumps up to 75Hp.
The soft starter promises to minimize vibrations during starting and stopping of centrifugal pumps, and to minimize the inrush current. Two RSWT Series types are offered: the V00/V01 provides a single adjustment setting for the soft-starting and stopping time of the pump, whereas the V10/V11 includes Class 10 overload protection and soft starting and stopping times that can be individually set for more accurate pump control. Features of the series include: an output voltage rating up to 600VAC; 45-mm housing for up to 20HP (25A) switching; 75-mm housing for up to 50HP (55A) switching; 90mm housing for up to 75HP (90A) switching; LED indication for status and alarms; diagnostic alarm outputs; and a self-learning algorithm for centrifugal pumps. The series is cUL and CE listed.
