Eaton’s Choosing Between a Soft Starter and a Variable Frequency Drive to Fit Your Application White Paper

Eaton's Choosing Between a Soft Starter and a Variable Frequency Drive to Fit Your Application White Paper

Motors often require large amounts of energy when quickly accelerating to full speed. Soft starters and variable frequency drives can both be used to reduce inrush currents and limit torque— protecting your valuable equipment and extending the life of your motor by reducing motor heating caused by frequent starts and stops. Choosing between a soft starter and a variable frequency drive often depends on the application, system requirements, and cost (both for initial startup and over the life cycle of the system). Read Eaton’s Choosing Between a Soft Starter and a Variable Frequency Drive to Fit Your Application white paper for a few tips to pick the best soft starter and VFD for your application.
