We get lots of questions every year about applying motor controls. Most of these questions are related to selecting the right starting method, based on the customer’s particular application. To address these questions, Benshaw has released a new three-part series of white papers that provides valuable technical information intended to help customers “Get their motor running.” These white papers explore the dynamics between motor design, starting current requirements and the various starting methods used to maximize performance and improve energy efficiency in fixed speed applications.
There are several steps involved in selecting a soft starter model most appropriate for your installation. Bypass type, the motor connection method, start duty and operating conditions must all be considered. A new eBook from Benshaw can help guide the way.
