Advantages

  • Motor Starting with no load
  • Smooth acceleration of the load
  • Machine and Motor protection against overload, limited to the maximum torque transmitted
  • Motor Selection through the operating torque, avoiding an oversizing selections of the motor by the starting torque
  • Low motor power consumption
  • Excellent ROI (short pay back period)
  • High efficiency due to the low sliding
  • Maximum torque transmission capacity can be achieved in the range of 80 up to 270% of the operating torque
  • Several designs

Tailor-made solutions

Fixed speed

  • Modular design allowing several customization possibilities
  • Radial removability without having to move the connected machinery
