Danfoss VLT® Soft Starter MCD 201

Danfoss VLT® MCD Compact Soft Starters allow for control ramping of all AC motors. Upgrading from DOL or non-Semiconductor controlled starter to a Compact Soft Starter reduces mechanical stress on the motor as well as electrical cable and networks stress, extending the lifespan of the system whilst saving energy and giving a smoother start to the motor.

Danfoss VLT® MCD201 series Soft Starter has been designed to suit any application requiring smooth starting of a motor but requiring low costs and a small footprint.
