The CSX series soft starters by Saftronics offers one of the smallest footprints in the industry, and features a bypass contactor, ideal for non-ventilated enclosures such as MCC installations. The CSX series is an open-loop timed voltage ramp (TVR) controller that provides for soft starts and stops for squirrel-cage type induction motors from 5-200 horsepower. The CSX soft starters are intended for use with an external motor protection device, and are well suited where an existing full voltage motor starter or motor overload is installed. The CSX is adapted to receive Modbus, Profibus, and DeviceNet fieldbus communication modules, which can be snapped onto the side of the CSX module. The CSX can operate on input voltages from 208-480 VAC (+/- 10%).
