The fundamentals of combination starters.
Simply put, a combination starter is a motor starter that has the three following elements contained in an enclosure or some kind of protective case: A motor disconnect, a motor controller, motor branch circuit protection, and motor overload protection. A non-combination starter on the other hand only has a control device and motor overload protection. Combination starters essentially provide you with that extra control, plus a built-in level of circuit protection that other magnetic starters don’t.
Combination starters control motor loads across both small scale commercial applications like car washes, apartment buildings, and grocery stores, as well as large scale industrial applications like refineries, power plants, and mining.
Do I need a combination starter?
Combination starters are some of the most popular motor controllers, and can be used both indoors and outdoors. They are extremely versatile since they are also highly modifiable and come in a variety of configurations, combinations, and designs. Installing combination starters in your control panel can help reduce clutter by keeping the motor disconnects and controllers together with the overload and circuit protection devices. Using combination starters will not only simplify your control panel, but also increase your productivity by relying on fewer wiring connections.
