MFA 1-5
Blade Electrode System

Stage- & MFA1-5 series liquid resistance starters impress with their
straightforward and sturdy design and high level of costeffectiveness.
Their specially-developed and patented blade
electrode alignment allows for a very compact design that also
simplifies servicing and maintenance. Liquid resistance starters
of the MFA1-5 series are excellently-suited to smaller and
medium power range applications from 100 to 10.000 kW.
Their highly-efficient and modern design provides an attractive
alternative to oil-cooled starters. Growing environmental
awareness and the high level of flexibility of the MFA1-5 liquid
resistance starters are the reason why this series is increasingly
the replacement of choice for older, oil-cooled models that can
cause environmental damage in the event of a malfunction.
