Synergy ™ – Redefining Soft Starters

With size and cabinet capacity becoming an ever increasing focus we developed the world’s smallest power to size ratio Softstarter. In addition Synergy™ utilises Fairford’s globally renowned Automatic setup feature which allows the user to programme the unit to each individual application using a simple 4 button process. Not only that but in order to keep pace with the modern technology and a fast growing market it removes buttons and uses touch screen technology to bring the user interface to even greater management levels.

With built in SCR failure protection as standard, and full motor overload protection as well as full data logging, field serviceable and upgradeable software and extensive input/output programmability synergy™ meets all of the key design criteria.

More importantly it redefines soft start solutions as we have previously known it.
