    Benefits of using soft starters.

    Soft starters, sometimes also referred to as reduced voltage soft starters, can be used for either single phase or 3 phase motors, in low and medium voltage industrial applications including HVAC systems, pump systems, induction motors and more. Soft starters don’t rely on a high level of torque to start up a motor which leads to smoother motor function, less maintenance, fewer burnouts, and less money spent on replacement parts.

    How do Soft Starters Work?

    A soft starter is used to control and protect AC motors. When a motor starts up, there is a high current surge before the motor begins running. The working principle of a motor soft starter is based on a temporary decrease in the electrical load in order to take some of the stress off the motor and the circuits. This can help protect against potential overloads while increasing the lifespan of the motor, increasing productivity, and improving reliability.

    Single Phase Soft Starters

    Protect your single phase motor with a single phase soft starter. By reducing the stress place on your motor during start up, a single phase motor can prolong the life of your AC motor. They are used with fans, compressors and pumps across a number of industrial applications.

    3-Phase Soft Starters

    3 phase motors need 3 phase soft starters. 3 phase soft starters gradually ramp up the speed of the motor to keep it from burning out on start up. Used across heavier applications like rush crushers and centrifugal pumps, 3 phase soft starters are built to withstand the stresses of 3 phase motors and optimize performance.

    Medium Voltage Soft Starters

    By reducing the stress placed on your induction motor on start up, medium voltage soft starters help increase the lifespan of your motor without sacrificing productivity. Medium voltage soft starters are used for applications rated up to 15kV AC.
