Motor Starting

Our range of motor starting equipment at LED Controls includes soft starters, manual motor starters, DOL starters and star delta starters from top quality names including Danfoss, ABB, Chint and Lovato.

Soft starters

A soft starter is a device used to control the acceleration of an electric motor to protect it from sudden surges of power which can damage the motor. It is only used in the start up of a motor and ensures that the increase to maximum speed is done slowly. Soft starters are used in applications needing both speed and torque control.

 

Manual Motor starters

Manual motor starters, or motor protection circuit breakers, are electromechanical protection devices for the main circuit of a motor. They are used to enable motors to be operated (switched on/off) manually and to provide fuseless protection against short-circuit failures, disconnection and overload.


DOL starters

A Direct On Line (DOL) starter, or across the line starter, is the most basic form of motor starter, made up of a circuit breaker, contractor and overload relay for the protection of motors. DOL starters are found in equipment such as small water pumps, compressor fans and conveyor belts.

Star delta starters

A star delta starter is specially designed as a reduced voltage starting method for cage motors, and is one of the most common types of starter. It gets its name due to the way that the motor windings are connected during starting, in a star configuration.
