Instead of the traditional means of reduced-voltage starting using autotransformers, reactors, or resistors, the ASTAT XT Soft Starter is a reduced-voltage starter that uses advanced digital technology to protect and control motors.
Customers are demanding easy-to-use, cost-competitive soft starters, and GE meets the demand with its ASTAT XT," says Paul Bunnell, drives & soft starter product manager with GE Consumer & Industrial's electrical distribution business.
Offering motor protection with IEC Class 10 or Class 20 and NEMA Class 10, Class 20 and Class 30 overload, the ASTAT XT Soft Starter delivers reliable performance and smooth acceleration for a range of standard AC motors (8A-1400A and 230V-690V).
The instructor will cover both NEMA and IEC products including, but not limited to, pushbuttons, starters and ASTAT
solid-state starters with time spent on drives.
