Reduce starting torque surge and decrease downtime. The PB Softstarter is a compact and economical solid state controller designed for single and three phase, low horsepower squirrel cage motors (up to 15HP @ 460V). The unit is designed to work in conjunction with an electromechanical motor starter. No additional control is required. Series PB Softstarters are ideal for constant torque starting applications such as conveyors, bridge cranes and overhead doors.
Decreases downtime. In operation, the PB Softstarter reduces the starting torque surge typical of across-the-line starting. This provides smoother starts and decreases equipment downtime caused by shock and vibration problems.
For use anywhere. Three voltage ranges between 200 and 600V assure that these units can be used anywhere in the world.
Many convenient features. PB Softstarters are completely self contained and require minimal mounting and installation. Digital rotary switches are quickly and easily set to the exact value. In addition, the units are maintenance-free with no mechanical parts to wear out.
