Learn more about the challenges and options when it comes to starting electric motors to ensure you select the right solution.

The Motor Starting Challenge

Occupying the unique space between electrical and mechanical, a motor both affects and is affected by the electrical supply and the mechanical process it powers.

A poor motor start can cause any number of the following problems, which can be very costly in terms of both time and money, including excessive voltage drop, high starting current, high mechanical stress, high thermal stress and overload of local generation.

Learn how to overcome these motor starting challenges in Part 3 of our Get Your Motor Running white paper - 'Motor Starting Solutions'.
