Cutler Hammer has developed probably the world’s most compact range of high specification soft starts which are suitable for Industrial Applications such as: Conveyors, Mixers, Cranes and Hoists. These Soft starters are ultra-compact, easy-to-program and easy to install. New design incorporates the soft starter, run bypass contactor and overload into a single easy-to-use unit. In contrast a star-delta starter uses 3 or 4 contactors, a timer, a separate overload, mechanical interlock and auxiliaries and requires wiring together. IT Soft Starts are IEC, UL, CSA, EN Certified and CE Marked EMC/LV Directive
