AC motors that are connected directly to their power source exhibit heightened power consumption during starting and stopping and can demand up to seven times of the rated motor current irrespective of load. This can create irregular starting and shut down behaviors as well as unnecessary strain on all components involved. NORD has created a simple and economical solution to these unnecessary risks associated with running electric motors as the primary mover. The SK135E/SK175 regulates the three major functions of a motor starter and controls them in order to protect equipment while saving you money in the process.
NORD Gear: Motor soft starters
Eliminate uncontrolled starting and mechanical strain on drive components with the SK135E / SK175E soft start drive family; the starters are designed to be used in a distributed control system and can be mounted directly on or near the motor.
