Eaton Corporation: Soft start controllers reduce energy costs
The DS7 line of compact, high-performance, soft start controllers from Eaton Corporation provides smooth acceleration and deceleration of the load, minimizing shock to mechanical components, extending life of the system, increasing reliability, reducing downtime, and lowering costs.
Designed for pump, fan and conveyor belt applications, the DS7 soft starters reduce the demands made on a motor during start up, resulting in reduced energy requirements. The DS7 can control motor deceleration, reduce peak in-rush current, and minimize penalties from utilities. Small size fits in most enclosures or additional assemblies. Comes with an integrated bypass relay. Provides current ranges from 16 to 32 amps and an asymmetric delay angle control that helps make torque behavior similar to a three-phase starter. It can take 24 volts (V) of direct or alternating current, or 110V/230V of alternating control voltage. UL approved.
