Due to the availability of numerous motor starters, it has become quite challenging to choose from the pool of motors. There are many factors on which the selection of a motor is dependent; this article will highlight all those factors to make it easy for you to understand the motor and then make the right buying decision.
Which type of motor do you prefer?
A starter motor is available in different styles and types; you need to understand the types and then choose the suitable one. The first one is a manual motor that contains an on/off switch to operate manually and is suitable for fans, small pumps, etc. Next is the magnetic motor that depends on electromagnets for switching on and off. The third one is the electronic motor, which contains a digital control to switch it.
Protection- an essential factor
If the motor is started too quickly and frequently, then there is a possibility that this will damage the motor's windings and hence the protection of the Starter is significant. The manual Starter has mechanical overload protection. The advanced motors contain sensors that can detect the sudden increase or decrease in the power and can take action to avoid any damage to the motor. These sensors also contain adjustable thresholds that can work in favor of managing the current.
Important points to consider
Choose a motor starter that has a built-in support mechanism to save energy. This mechanism includes an occupancy sensor and a timer that can provide the power as per demand and reduce the energy's overall usage. The torque of the motor you buy should be enough to support your engine. The voltage requirement should match the compression level of the Starter. It should be lightweight for easy use and transportation.
