Courtesy: BaldorBaldor Electric Co.’s MST digital soft starter with six SCR three-phase voltage control offers advanced protection for the motor, the soft starter, and the load, ensuring trouble-free operation. Available from 7.5 to 1000 hp at 208 to 575 Vac, this product is suitable for a wide variety of applications including pumps, compressors, fans, and conveyors. The MST digital soft starter features programmable torque control, providing a more linear acceleration during start that reduces wear and tear, and during stop that virtually eliminates pump water hammer. This torque control function was developed and tested in collaboration with pump manufacturers to ensure the best possible stop without water hammer and pressure surges. It also offers integrated advanced motor protection with current sensing, programmable signal relays, programmable analog output, and a built-in keypad interface. MST digital soft starters are available in two styles, an open starter or an enclosed combination starter.
