Schneider introduces Altistart 01 soft start motor control
The Altistart 01 mini soft start limits stress on the mechanical parts of a machine and reduces the cost of maintenance and downtime by providing smooth motor starting and stopping control for applications that are not high horsepower and do not require high starting torque, said Tim Roberts, controls product manager, Schneider Electric North America.
Installation of Altistart 01 mini soft starts is quick and simple with the option of DIN rail or panel mounting, a contactor-style power wiring scheme, and a removable control wiring terminal. Side-by-side mounting can save up to 25 percent of valuable panel space. The mini soft start can be used to add the benefits of soft starting to any existing motor starter and is ideal for retrofit applications and other common uses, such as material handling conveyors, belt-driven machinery, fans, pumps, automatic doors and gates, small compressors and process machinery.
The Altistart 01 mini soft start offers an affordable alternative to variable speed drives as its modular design means lower costs for customers due to reduced installation time and materials, as well as lower energy costs, Roberts said.
The Altistart 01 mini soft start family consists of three performance levels, including:
