Forwards, backwards, the reversing starter does it all.
Reversing starters utilize electromagnetism and can make a motor rotate in either direction. Both AC and DC motor starters can be reversing starters and can be used with single phase and three phase motors. In reversing motor starters there are separate contactors and circuits for each direction that allow the motor to go in forward or reverse. They utilize an interlocking mechanism that prevents the contactors from being energized at the same time which can cause damage to the starter or the motor. 3 phase motors simply require the swapping of the wires of any 2 phases. Single phase motors require additional devices to operate in reverse.
Who’s using reversing starters?
Reversing starters carry voltage ratings that range between 200V to 600V, with current ratings as high as 270A. Both IEC and NEMA have reversing starters built to their standards. Reversing starters are commonly used for induction motors and are used throughout a number of industrial applications including construction and building automation.
