Soft starters are essential for all systems that could be damaged by excessive vibration (e.g. electric motors) or sudden power onset (e.g. sensitive electronics). A correctly deployed solid state soft starter can prolong the lifespan of the system and increase overall reliability.
We understand that for system manufacturers whose reputation depends on reliability, choosing the right soft start unit can play an important part in their brand’s success. Avoiding current surges with a soft starter can also help to limit the power usage of the system, with benefits to the end user of reduced electricity costs – which can be an important competitive factor for industrial systems.
We stock single phase and three phase soft starters to cater for a variety of application types including electrical and high power mechanical systems.
