PSTX in numbers
Eliminate water hammering
42 percent of all electricity is used in the industry. Two thirds of this electricity goes to powering electric motors. The PSTX will help you use both your motor and application more sustainably, reliably and efficiently. Imagine the potential. Motor starting matters.
PSTX is designed to address some of the most common electrical problems that comes from starting motors. It both reduces starting current at the same time as it keeps the motor protected from both load and network irregularities. A great component in any motor starting panel.
The built-in earth fault protection detects if there is an earth fault in the motor connection that could lead to damages. The current limiting function detects if the current has exceeded the set trip level and prevents heavy loads from creating unnecessary electrical stress during start. Reduced current allows the OEMs to install the motor in more networks and motor protections will prolong their equipment's lifetime.
Installing and using the PSTX is made fast and easy, to save time for everyone that is working with it. A design decision that is influencing everything from ordering to commissioning.
In PSTX, a lot of functionality is already built-in. The bypass will reduce both energy consumption and heat generation while running motors at full speed. Having it built-in saves both time on installation and space inside the panel.
The PSTX also has a detachable keypad that is easy to use, saving time during commissioning and operation. To summarize it quick and easy - The PSTX softstarter is a complete motor starter in a compact package.
PSTX takes motor starting to the next level, making it possible to get more out of the process and being more flexible. The PSTX also reduces the wear and tear on motor and equipment which is saving time and money spent on service and maintenance.
With all its included functions such as torque control to avoid water hammering, jog with slow speed to rotate motor slowly both forward and reverse as well as possibility to clean a pump by reversing the flow PSTX is the complete motor starting solution. To increase reliability of the process, PSTX includes limp mode that will allow the continuing of operation even of a thyristor is broken. Increasing the productivity and using the motor to its full potential.
