Soft starting motor controller limits stress
Motor Starting Controller
The Telemecanique Altistart 01 Soft Start provides smooth motor starting control for applications that do not require high starting torque. Soft starting limits the stress on the mechanical parts of a machine and reduces the cost of maintenance and downtime. The starter works with 110–575-V, single-phase and three-phase asynchronous motors, with ratings of 1/4–75 hp, and 20– 60-hp three-phase motors rated 32–85 A at 208, 230, 460 and 575 V.
