Siemens Industry Automation is expanding its product range of Sirius
soft starters with the compact Sirius 3RW30. The devices in four frame sizes
enable soft starting of motors in standard applications such as pumps, conveyor
belts, or fans up to 55 kilowatts at 400 volts. The Sirius 3RW30 soft starter
improves the startup characteristics of motors with two-phase polarity
balancing, and avoids mechanical loads, voltage fluctuations, and current peaks.
This protects not only the drive system but also the power network and thus
minimizes maintenance overhead and expensive current peaks. The user can easily
set the startup time and the starting voltage using two potentiometers on the
device. In the 45-millimeter frame size, the 3RW30 takes the place of a
star-delta switch and saves up to 70 percent of control cabinet space while
delivering the same performance power. The device can be easily configured and
installed using three motor leads and variable connections.
