Soft Starter

Soft starter reduce inrush current from electrical mortor

Any electrical motor will draw between 6 and 9 times its running current on start up. Power supply companies call this ‘peak demand’ which is charged at massive rates – up to ten times standard usage charges!

Soft starters reduce this inrush or peak current by allowing only minimal current to pass, slowly allowing more and more through until the maximum speed is obtained. Typically, a soft starter will reduce start up current to between 3 and 6 times the running current.
