Motor Soft Starters
The in-rush current and torque surges that occur during motor start-up can shock and damage mechanical systems. Connecting a soft starter between an AC electric motor and power supply helps prevent potential issues by slowly increasing voltage during start-up. Allowing motors to come to full speed gradually helps extend their operating life and reduces costly downtime caused by mechanical issues.
