Soft-start controllers

Eaton's DS7 soft-start controllers

09/06/2011


Eaton introduces DS7 soft-start controllers, which provide smooth acceleration and deceleration of the load, minimizing shock to mechanical components. Designed for pump, fan, and conveyor belt applications—as well as water/wastewater and heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) industries—the DS7 soft starters reduce demands made on a motor during start-up, resulting in reduced energy requirements. The Eaton DS7 soft starter can provide customers with the benefits of soft starting without necessitating a change in enclosure sizes or additional assemblies. It also has an integrated bypass relay. The DS7 is available for current ranges from 16 to 32 amps. With an asymmetric delay angle control, the DS7 helps make torque behavior similar to a three-phase starter. It can take 24 V of direct or alternating current, or 110 V/230 V of alternating control voltage. It is Underwriters Laboratories approved.
