Soft starters increase a motor's lifetime by protecting it from electrical stresses. They do so by letting you optimize starting currents that with conventional starting methods put lots of stress on the motor. Powertech Controls is a global supplier of high quality electrical components, and is proud to offer the following lines of Soft Starters:
 
ABB SOFT STARTERS
EATON SOFT STARTERS
LOVATO SOFT STARTERS
SPRECHER & SCHUH SOFT STARTERS
T & B SOFT STARTERS
WEG SOFT STARTERS

Powertech Controls offers a number of soft starter controllers that utilize reliable solid state electronics to soft start three phase induction motors. Various options such as "soft-stopping" and braking are also available.
 
Common Applications for Soft Starters:
  • Material Handling
  • Overhead Cranes
  • Rock Crushers
  • Extruders
  • Centrifugal Pumps
  • Conveying Systems
  • Lumber & Saw Mills
  • Ventilators & Blowers
  • Compressors
  • Stirrers & Mixers
  • Transport Systems
  • Mills & Kneaders
The Benefits of Controlled Starting:
Solid state starting reduces the inrush currents and mechanical shock typical of conventional electromechanical motor starters, while providing silent and smooth acceleration without arcing, chattering or vibration. Wear on belts, chains, gearboxes, and bearings is reduced, thus minimizing production losses and idle times.
 
Create The Ideal Start/Stop Profile For Your Application
Soft Starters can easily be configured to provide the desired starting and stopping characteristics. Virtually every controller that Powertech offers, can provide a choice of starting and stopping combinations that will allow you to create a custom motor controller suited for any application.
 
No Maintenance, Easy Installation
Because there are no moving parts, Soft Starter controllers require no regular maintenance to repair or replace worn out components. All units can be easily integrated into a new system or used to upgrade an existing electromechanical system using the same control circuitry.
 
Many Options Available
Regardless of the size or complexity of your installation, Powertech Controls can get you the parts you need and the service you deserve to ensure the job gets done right.
