Employing an Adjustable Frequency Drive with a Soft Starter Bypass Improves System Reliability

Optimum motor control packages start with a drive to provide the most control, flexibility, and protection. Adding a bypass with an integral soft starter provides a backup system to run the motor should the drive fail. Large drive systems should have soft starters in the bypass, otherwise the application risks negatively affecting the power system, damaged bearings, or bent shafts once the bypass is engaged.
