Soft starter protection features

1) Overload protection: the soft starter has current control loop to track and detect of the changes of the electric motor current. Achieve overload protection by increasing overload current settings and inverse time control mode, to cut down the thyristor and send alarm signals when motor is overload.
2) Phase loss protection: soft starter detects changes in the three-phase line current all the time, to make phase loss protection response once the current off.
3) Overheating protection: the soft starter detects the thyristors internal radiator's temperature by its thermal relay, automatic cut down and send alarm signal once the radiator's temperature exceeds the allowable value.
4) Other features: achieve lots of mixed protection functions by combination of the electronic circuits.
