Carlo Gavazzi RSQK Series Soft Starts

The RSQK Series soft starts are designed to improve performance of industrial applications, decreasing the “wear and tear” of mechanical transmission components.

BUFFALO GROVE, IL –  Carlo Gavazzi has recently launched their RSQK Series high-power intelligent soft starts, designed to improve performance of industrial applications.  They decrease the “wear and tear” of mechanical transmission components, such as belts, and assure the reduction of high-starting currents and mechanical stress on gears, shafts, and pulleys.

The RSQK Series features are well suited for applications such as controlling large pumps, fans, and mixers in 200-500 HP range that require only a limited number of starts and stops. Compared to other soft starts, the RSQK Series soft starts are provided with an automatic energy optimizing feature that can increase efficiency, especially in lightly loaded applications, saving energy without any drawbacks on the motor or system. The device is also provided with an automatic application setup, guaranteeing lower installation costs and quicker commissioning.  

Specifications include:

•    3-phase controlled soft start with internal bypass
•    UL listed range:  23-900 Amps at 230 and 480VAC
