Latest Digital Technology
The Softdrive 300 is a compact multifunctional Soft Start using the latest digital technology to provide the smoothest start for the standard three phase squirrel-cage induction motor up to 800kW at 400V.
The Amp Ramp is a simple cost-effective Soft Start for motors up to 110kW.
It uses two back-to-back semiconductor devices in each phase to control the current applied to the motor ensuring the smoothest start possible.
The Single Phase Energy Optimiser Soft Starter.
The HFE is the ideal 'retrofit' energy optimising solution for Soft Starting single phase compressors such as those used in Supermarket refrigerators and chillers etc., and can yield between 10 -18% energy savings.
XFE Otimising Soft Starters
The XFE Soft Starter range provides a combination of competitive prices, flexible start duty capability and overload protection. It benefits from having the same underlying engineering and pedigree as the QFE and has a variety of ratings and functions, including the option to use an external bypass contactor and a choice of Energy Optimising or non-Optimising modes.
The XFE also has a number of ratings to match your specific application.
Low Cost, Internally Bypassed Soft Starter
The DFE is Fairford's internally bypassed, non-optimising Soft Starter which is perfect for panel builders and end users alike.
To the user it offers competitive pricing, soft stopping and the removal of high transient currents. To panel builders it is an ideal substitute for a Star/Delta starter because it fits into a similar footprint, thus simplifying installation. It's now available from 22 Amps to 500 Amps
45mm Width Internally Bypassed Soft Starter
The PFE is the latest development from Fairford Electronics, who have 25 years of experience producing innovative designs in the soft start market.
With ratings from 2.2kW to 22kW, the PFE is ideally placed to support any AC induction motors in use today. This makes the PFE the natural choice for distributors and customers alike.
Benefiting from Fairford’s excellence in engineering, the PFE combines the quality and reliability you have come to expect. This is one product that ticks all the boxes.
Energy Optimising Soft Starters, 9 – 1800 Amp
The QFE Soft Starter is Fairford's ultimate range of Energy Optimising Soft Starters.
