Slow Starts Save Money
Carlo Gavazzi (Buffalo Grove, IL) has launched the RSBS Series Single-phase Plug-and-Play Soft Start, which reduces the amperage demand when starting heat pumps. By maintaining the starting current below fixed limits, the RSBS avoids high energy tariffs and reduces heat dissipation, allowing for a 60 percent reduction in current. Additional features include:
- A reduction of mechanical stress on compressors, increasing their lifespan.
- Current reduction of <40Arms for compressors rated up to 25Arms and <45Arms for compressors rated up to 32Arms.
- Integrated diagnostic features to ensure safe operation at all times.
