Choose Soft Starters for

CONTROLLED STARTING
Acceleration time, torque and current limits, even slow speed jogging are all available
Consistent, reliable electronic overload protection

LESS MAINTENANCE
Reduce the torque surge when your motor starts and you reduce damage to bearings and couplings, gearboxes, chains, belts and pulleys
Reduce water hammer in pipes, mechanical shock on conveyors and loads, and cavitation in pumps

LOWER PEAK CURRENT DEMAND
Lower peak charges from the utility
Smaller dips in line voltage
Minimize stress on motor windings, especially in large motors

REMOTE MANAGEMENT
Connect to your network for remote monitoring and management, maintenance scheduling and more

ALL THE ADVANTAGES OF
SOFT STARTERS, PLUS:

ADJUSTABLE SPEED AND REVERSING
Simplify process control and mechanisms
Adjust production speed
Control machine tools

SAVE ENERGY
Take advantage of the savings curve when load or flow demand varies—especially centrifugal pumps, fans, and blowers
Bypass or eliminate energy wasting devices such as pressure valves, air dampers, mechanical speed controls, and gearboxes
Simplify systems and reduce vibration, flow turbulence, and maintenance

ENABLE AUTOMATIC CONTROL
Regulate speed based on flow or demand with built-in PID control, or manage with your PLC or flow/ pressure control system

RUN MULTIPLE MOTORS
Run several motors together at the same speed with one packaged drive
Switch between main and backup motors—even different sizes—with just one drive
Automatically run (or soft-start) additional pumps when demand is highest—a drive can regulate the total flow of the whole system
