Soft Starters

Soft starters are a type of motor control device used to control the starting current and torque of electric motors. They are used to reduce the sudden inrush of current that occurs when an electric motor is started, which can cause damage to the motor, and to minimize mechanical stress on the equipment being driven by the motor.

A motor soft starter works by gradually ramping up the voltage supplied to the motor during the starting process, typically over a period of several seconds. This reduces the initial starting current and torque, which helps to protect the motor and equipment. Soft starters can also provide additional benefits, such as reduced wear and tear on belts, gears, and couplings, and improved efficiency and control over the motor.

When selecting a soft starter, it is important to consider the specific requirements of the application, such as the voltage and current rating of the motor, the maximum starting torque and acceleration time required, and the environmental conditions in which the motor will be operating. Soft starters can be used in a variety of applications, including pumps, compressors, conveyor systems, and other machinery.
