AC drives continue to be applied at a rate of approximately 20:1 even in situations when soft starters are sufficient to do the job.

The reason: AC drives will work in almost all applications, but soft starters will not. This does not mean that AC drives are easier to specify, install and commission - it simply means that AC drives work in a wider variety of applications.

So why choose a soft starter? Substantial savings can be realized when using a soft starter instead of an AC drive in the proper applications. These savings can come in:

  • Cost
  • Panel space
  • Energy and efficiency
