Soft start/soft stop motor controller
Schneider Electric's Enclosed Altistart™ 22 soft start/soft stop motor controller includes an integrated circuit breaker disconnect and soft starter in a stand-alone enclosure and helps to reduce voltage starting and soft stopping of standard 3-phase asynchronous induction (squirrel cage) motors.
With integrated bypass functions, the Altistart 22 extends the service life of machines through reducing wiring costs, simplifying installation, and providing energy efficiency. The integrated bypass reduces the number of external components, such as power wiring, contactor, and control wiring for coil, while also decreasing heat dissipation and allowing for a smaller enclosure. Features a complete low voltage offering of horsepower ratings up to 125 hp at 480V. Conformal-coated, printed circuit boards provide resistance to harsh environments. Energy-efficient features include reduced current inrush, reduced voltage drop and mechanical shocks.
