Enclosed Soft Start Trip Class
The MCW Enclosed 0.75kW to 15kW softstarters are fitted with a Trip Class 10 motor breaker as standard which is suitable for the majority of light to medium industrial type load applications. The soft start can be converted to trip class 20 on request (medium to heavy industrial loads) please speak to a member of our team. This involves supplying a larger soft start unit, a trip class 20 thermal overload and a larger MCB/MCCB. Please note on some models the enclosure size may increase.
The MCW Enclosed Soft Starter range are not suitable for applications that have a very heavy load on start that takes greater than 20s to start or very high inertia loads such as high inertia fans, centrifuges or loaded crushers. Please speak to a member of our team where we can discuss your application.
Starting the MCW Enclosed Soft Starters more than once every 10 minutes will alter the thermal overload tripping characteristics making the overload trip more quickly for a given thermal overload current setting.
Trip Class Explained
At 600% of the maximum current rating of the motor the Trip Class 10 unit will trip in 10 seconds or less, Trip Class 20 will trip in 20 seconds or less, and Trip Class 30 will trip in 30 seconds or less.
