Motor Starters

Motor starters are electrical devices used to control the operation of electric motors. They typically consist of a motor starter, an overload relay, and a control circuit. The motor starter is responsible for initiating and stopping the motor's operation, while the overload relay protects the motor from excessive current by monitoring the motor's current levels.

There are different types of motor starters available, such as magnetic motor starters, reduced voltage starters (including star-delta starters), soft starters, and manual starters. Each type is suited for specific motor control applications and offers different features and benefits.

Motor starters are essential for safely operating motors. They provide overload protection to prevent the motor from drawing excessive current, and they also enable manual speed control and other control functions. Some motor starters have auxiliary contacts that allow for the integration of additional control devices or systems.
