VLT Soft Starter MCD 500

VLT Soft Starter MCD 500 is a total motor starting solution. Current transformers measure motor current and provide feedback for controlled motor ramp profiles. AAC, Adaptive Acceleration Control, automatically employs the best starting and stopping profile for the application.

Adaptive Acceleration Control means that for each start and stop, the soft starter compares and adapts the process to the chosen profile fitting to the application. VLT Soft Starter MCD 500 has a four line graphical display and a logic keypad making programming easy. Advanced setup is possible displaying operational status. Three menu systems: Quick Menu, Application Setup and Main Menu provide optimum programming approach.

Motortronics Starters

Dry Auxiliary Contacts of the 2S2W starter are used to provide a Run command to the VMX Series so that all existing controls can be used. In addition, another dry Aux. of the Fast contactor is used to select Ramp 2. When started in Slow, Ramp 1 (default) is used. If started in Fast, different ramp settings are necessary so Ramp 2 is used. Either OLR will trip the VMX Series, which will display [Ptc] and light the "Overload" LED.
