Baldor has introduced the MST Soft Starter with six SCR three-phase voltage control that offers advanced protection for the motor, the soft starter and the load. Available from 7.5 to 1,000 HP at 208 to 575 VAC, it is suitable for a variety of applications, including pumps, compressors, fans, conveyors, mixers and stirrers. It features programmable torque control, providing a more linear acceleration during start that reduces wear and tear, and during stop it virtually eliminates pump water hammer.
