can supply any type of starter to suit your drive needs. Because it takes a large amount of power to start a loaded belt, starters are imperative in any conveyor system. The three most common types of starters are across-the-line, soft start and VFD (variable frequency drive).
A VFD Starter controls the frequency of the electrical power supplied to the motor. This type of starter is widely used because it initially applies a low frequency to the motor and avoids the high current that occurs when starting a motor by turning on a switch.
Benefits of VFD Starters:
This type of starter is the simplest, most common type because it applies full voltage directly to the motor, resulting in a quick, full torque start.
Benefits of Across-the-line Starters:
Unlike across-the-line starters, soft starters are used to start or stop motors by reducing the voltage to each phase of a motor and slowly increasing the voltage until the motor gets up to full voltage at a fixed frequency.
Benefits of Soft Start Starters:
