Soft Starters

Total motor starting solution, with advanced start/stop and protection features.
Compact and cost effective
Where direct online starting is undesirable
These items replace the outdated and inefficient “star-delta-starter” voltage starting method
Also a soft starter can be used to replace or in conjunction with “Direct on-Line”, most commonly called DOL.


These are placed between the frequency convertor and the motor, they are differential-mode low-pass filters that suppress the switching frequency component from the drive and smooth out the phase-to-phase output voltage of the drive to become sinusoidal. This reduces the motor insulation stress and bearing currents.

By supplying the motor with a sinusoidal voltage waveform, the switching acoustic noise from the motor is also eliminated.
Various forms of filters are available, let Drive Solutions help you in the best solution for your application.


Motor efficiency is one factor that can significantly affect running costs of any motor under given sets of conditions.
Small improvements in efficiency can result in big savings in annual running costs.
