COVID-19 - update

The health and well-being of our employees, customers and suppliers are of paramount importance to us.

We continue to monitor the latest advice and guidance from the government and are working on measures across our business to minimise any future disruption which we may experience.

Motortronics has been deemed part of the “essential” business supply chain due to the industries and customers we serve.

We have a carefully restructured operation in place to ensure continuity of service and supply and will continue to ensure that we are following latest government & health guidelines to support the health and welfare of our staff worldwide.

Our staff are available via phone, email or video conference facilities in lieu of face to face meetings.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and should anything change a member of our team will be in touch directly. For more information click here for a statement from Motortronics’ Vice President – Joyce Mitchell.

Mining & Quarrying

Mining, Quarrying and Aggregates

Motortronics’ VMX-synergy™ soft starter is a proven work-horse within the mining, quarrying aggregates sectors, providing proven reliability in these harsh environments.

These sectors consume nearly 10% of the world’s market for electrical motors and control systems, including soft starters to control pumps, fans, conveyors, mixers, crushers, vibrating screens, kilns, ovens, screw feeders and washers/dryers.

The VMX-synergy™ soft starter offers an advanced starting technique compared with other product offerings that require extensive programming during set-up and commissioning.

A proven winner in harsh conditions

The Motortronics™ soft starter range has a proven record of reliability and application suitability for all conveyor and crusher types. VMX-synergy™ is an ideal solution for conveyor and crusher applications as it accommodates an unloaded start and loaded start with no adjustment, no other manufactures product has this capability.

Utilising unique and efficient monitoring technologies the voltage and current are continuously measured with other critical signals to intelligently implement intuitive automatic control features and energy optimising opportunities with Motortronics’ iERS system.

Advanced Pedestal function

An advanced 'Automatic Pedestal' function starts the ramp from the actual breakaway torque of the load by automatically raising the voltage until the motor and load begins to pull away, and upon reaching this point VMX-synergy™ registers and the normal voltage ramp commences.

VMX-synergy™ appears to go straight to the breakaway torque voltage level but the ramping of the voltage is from a very low pedestal level over the first few cycles to virtually eliminate all the inrush currents normally associated with high pedestal voltage starting of other competitive types of soft starters but importantly still achieving a high quality soft start.
