Danfoss VLT® Soft Starter MCD 500

Effectively Protect Motors While Saving Energy.

A comprehensive solution for soft starting and stopping of three-phase asynchronous motors that increases uptime and reduces maintenance requirements.

By integrating soft starters with AC motors, you can save energy, space, and costs and increase the lifetime of your system by reducing wear on motors, power cables, and the electrical distribution system. And there is no need to consider filters and screened cables, as soft starters generate zero harmonics.
