Soft starters, New Zealand

A motor soft starter is a device used with AC electric motors to temporarily reduce the load and torque in the powertrain of the motor during startup. This reduces the mechanical stress on the motor and shaft, as well as the electrodynamic stresses on the attached power cables and electrical distribution network. Electrical soft starters are using thyristors to control the current flow and therefore the voltage applied to the motor. They can be connected in series with the line voltage applied to the motor, or can be connected inside the delta (Δ) loop of a delta-connected motor, controlling the voltage applied to each winding.

AuCom Electronics is an industrial power control company based in Christchurch, New Zealand, in 1978. The company is a world leader in producing of low and medium voltage soft starters. Whether you require a fully-featured motor control solution or a simple motor starter, AuCom has a product to suit.
