In many cases, soft starters are a better choice for starting AC motors than across-the-line starters. Their solid state circuitry gradually increases voltage to provide a smooth transition to full torque that reduces mechanical stresses on the motor and shaft. Benefits include:
Consistent performance over the full range of loaded or unloaded conditions
Easy to program to match the motor and load
Smooth acceleration without torque transients
