Soft starters for AC motors offer many benefits, with the most significant being a reduction of mechanical stresses on the motor and shaft as well as other components in a system, thereby extending equipment life. They also contribute to smarter use of power and less inrush current, which can minimize penalties from utility companies. An industry expert from Eaton explains these and other benefits of soft starters as well as some of the advantages of soft starters over traditional motor starters.
