SureStart® - single phase

Give large compressors and motors a soft start and extend their lifetime.

Achieve over 60% reduction in start-up current for your AC unit and pumps with our range of single phase SureStart® solutions — without compromising the full start torque for compressors and motors.

Designed to eliminate start-up issues on backup power, limit light flicker, reduce start-up noise, and extend the life of the motor or compressor. Single phase soft starters are suitable for 8A to 32A motors in the 220/230V models and are suitable between 8 A to 20A for the 115V models.

Plus, all single-phase models work in both 60Hz and 50Hz applications.

SureStart® soft starters are ETL, CE, approved and are compliant to RoHS, REACH, 3TG, and Prop65 regulations.
