Types of Motor Starters

When choosing a motor starter, you should consider the load, the type of motor, and the network before deciding which one is best for you.

Soft Starters: Soft starters steadily ramp up the speed of a motor to prevent large current surges and to minimize the amount of wear on electrical contacts in the system. Soft starters are typically used with on/off devices such as compressors or conveyer belts.

Variable frequency drives:
A variable frequency drive (VFD) can control the speed of the motor during the start and stop cycle and throughout the run cycle. A VFD is optimal for applications that require complete speed control.
