Soft starters provide many benefits for control of AC motors in the processing industry. Lower operational costs are achieved by reduced motor inrush current, which contribute to higher electrical bills and possible penalties from electrical utilities. Equipment longevity is improved by reduced mechanical stresses on driven components. Join us as we discuss these and other benefits of soft starters.

Primary Topics:
• Available motor control technologies
• Operation cost benefits of soft starts
• Performance benefits of soft starts
