Soft starters

2.3 kV - 13.8 kV

150 kW - 6.3 MW

The Power Electronics VS65 medium-voltage starter is the safest and most reliable solution in this respect. It is also completely flexible, thanks to its customized structure of MT cells. Operating at between 2.3kV and 13.8kV, it combines advanced design with hardware that has been thoroughly tested to the strictest IEC standards. It offers top performance in terms of motor control and safety, with fully controlled soft startup and shutdown for any application.





Robust design

Our VS65 starters have been designed and tested under and for the most adverse conditions. They are equipped with a simple and robust interface which allows you to configure even the most advanced control and motor-protection features, thereby ensuring a long service life for your valuable equipment.

Easy to operate

The VS65 is supplied with a clear alphanumeric display screen with membrane keypad, status indicator lights and hard-wearing, customized pushbutton controls for easy intuitive operation.

Maximum safety

The starter is divided electrically into four failsafe sections, which keep the medium- and low-voltage zones separate from each other. Fiber-optic communications between the control panel and power stages offer maximum security and immunity from interference.

Maximum safety

The VS65 has been designed to the strictest EN and IEC standards to minimize the risks associated with the operation of such medium-voltage electrical equipment.

At the beginning of 2017, the irrigation sector had already been making photovoltaic installations for direct supply of private pumps, mostly isolated, to replace or complement the use of generator sets for several years. At that time, Power Electronics  SD700SP drive was already the most installed. With the implementation of this solar pumping system it was possible to reduce operating costs and increase energy efficiency.
