The Solid-State Starter replaces existing Wye-Delta magnetic motor starter contactors, which require periodic inspections and maintenance. By smoothly controlling the amount of electrical current, Solid-State starters eliminate the large surge of motor start-up currents typical with mechanical starters. This eliminates power spikes that affect other electrical equipment. The result is quieter, more reliable operation and longer motor life.
The Solid-State Starter reduces large spikes on the building’s electrical system. An additional solid state overload relay protects the motor from damage. Also incorporated into this product is a reverse phase relay designed to prevent the motor from plugging because of a line loss.

The Solid-State Starter is specifically engineered for hydraulic elevator use. It can be installed on hydraulic elevators with 6- or 12-lead delta wound motors. The starter requires an area of approximately 12” wide by 12” high by 9” deep to mount into the existing controller. For proper application, contact your local Otis representative.
