Smarter starter

Looking for a soft starter with the smoothest possible switching without inrush currents? The TSE range of transformer soft starters from Carlo Gavazzi on show at Drives & Controls, employs a microprocessor controlled, patented switch-on procedure.

Smooth power-on, without spikes, is achieved by a short pre-magnetisation of the transformer core. When operated for more than two seconds, the internal electronic switch is bridged by the bypass relays, ensuring the integrated heat sink in the TSE is kept as compact as possible.
