UK’s first ATEX certified soft starter

01 May 2008

With ATEX hazardous areas now extended to include potentially explosive dust atmospheres such as in grain handling, flour mills, wood processing plants and the like, the requirement for ATEX certified electrical equipment has more than doubled in recent years.

To meet this new demand Softstart UK has introduced the only digital soft starters certified for use with Ex certified motors. The new fourth generation RVS-Ex range covers ratings up to 690 volts and 1100 amps and is the only soft starter available TUV certified for Ex-E, Ex-N, Ex-D and Ex-P classified motors.

Based on the proven RVS-DX range these starters have proven reliability and performance and offer the best solution for most ATEX applications. This new evolution of fully digital soft starters offers a digital display and a comprehensive array of motor protection features including special software for pump and fan starting, along with protection against over-frequent starts, lengthy start-ups and load loss. Auto bypass to mains is a standard feature for optimum efficiency.
