Soft Starters: To Bypass or Not to Bypass? That is the Question

Author: Revere Electric

Soft starters are designed to limit current or soft start (ramp up the voltage) of a motor. The same holds true for braking or soft stopping. Simple settings perform the start and stop well. So what about in-between the start and the stop? Do you continue to use silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR) control or do you utilize a bypass contactor?

E-drive Electric Actuators – The Next Step in High Performance High Force Linear Applications

Author: Revere Electric

Servo controlled electric actuators are a great way to improve upon the costs and performance of hydraulic systems. E-drive actuators utilize roller screw technology to obtain precise, smooth motion as well as excellent rigidity. The use of Servo motors to power the actuators allows for precise control that is easily operated with a range of controls, from simple indexing systems up to complex CIP motion, and can be easily integrated with any control system.
