Nord Gear's SK135E and SK175E soft start drives are designed for a distributed control system (DCS) and can be mounted directly on the motor or near the motor. AC motors that are connected directly to their power source exhibit heightened power consumption during starting and stopping and can demand up to seven times of the rated motor current irrespective of load. The SK135E and SK175 are designed to regulate the major functions of a motor starter and control them in order to protect the equipment. Features include two digital inputs and outputs, four DIP switches, and have up to four configurable potentiometers. They also have an RS-232 diagnostic interface and an EMC line filter along with an electromechanical motor brake control and motor overload protection and automatic phase sequence detections. Additional functions for the SK175E include onboard networking ASi or Profibus DP and two additional digital inputs.
