Features and Benefits

Internally Bypassed
Reduces cost because the Soft Starter is out of circuit once it has done its job. This reduces cabinet size and the heat produced which again reduces cost.

Over Current Protected
Protects the Soft Starter against use above its duty rating.

45mm Wide (Size 1)
Same width as typical existing control gear for easy connectability and enables a more compact cabinet to be used.

DIN Rail Mounted
For easy installation – it just clips on.
