Our Smart Motor Controllers™ are soft starters that are designed to help minimize cost by reducing overall system power requirements and wear and tear on equipment. Our soft starters can be easily integrated into your intelligent motor control solution to offer higher productivity and shorter downtimes. They are an ideal alternative to a drive where a more cost-effective, simple solution is required.
Our Bulletin 154-B STC™ Starting Torque Controllers provide a cost-effective, soft-starting solution for low horsepower single- and three-phase squirrel cage induction motors. Our starting torque controllers help reduce mechanical and electrical stress on motor circuits and systems by limiting voltage at start-up. This avoids the over-torque and over-current conditions that happen when across-the-line circuits are completed, like when a basic motor control contactor closes.
Our SMC™-50 fully solid-state soft starters are available with a current range from 90…520 A. Advanced monitoring and protection functions, superior communication capability, and Energy Saver mode all help this soft starter increase efficiency and reduce downtime.
Our SMC™ Flex Soft Starters are available with a current range from 5...1250 A. They feature integral bypass and flexible communications with advanced performance, diagnostics, and protection.
Our SMC™-3 Soft Starters are available with a current range from 3...480 A. They feature compact, true three-phase control in a cost-effective package. They include overload protection, integral bypass, and motor and system diagnostics.
Our Enclosed SMC-3, SMC Flex, and SMC-50 soft starters are available as non-combination, combination fused disconnect, or combination circuit breaker starters. Enclosed soft starters may be fully customized with a wide variety of factory-installed options and are pre-engineered for quick factory lead times.
