Series RGTS can control 120 or 240 VAC induction motors up to 25 A or 3 hp. A fully solid-state solution, wire-bonding technology reduces the thermal and mechanical stresses of the output chips. This results in a longer lifetime compared to other assembled technologies or electromechanical solutions, says the manufacturer. The single-phase motor soft-starters only require two user adjustments: The motor ramp-up time and initial torque can be independently adjusted via the built-in potentiometers. A green LED indicates the supply voltage presence. The ramp-up and full-voltage indication are provided through an orange LED. The soft-starters do not require a dedicated control signal.
