February 4, 2019

The RGTS Series is a fully solid state solution. Wire bonding technology reduces the thermal and mechanical stresses of the output chips resulting in a longer lifetime compared to other assembled technologies or electro-mechanical solutions. The RGTS is a very simple soft starter requiring just two user adjustments. The motor ramp-up time, and initial torque, can be independently adjusted via the built-in potentiometers. The green LED indicates the supply voltage presence. The ramp-up and full-voltage indication are provided through an orange LED. The RGTS does not require a dedicated control signal. Hence less wiring is involved. Despite its simplicity, the RGTSsolution that can help to reduce motor starting current by 40% compared to a direct on-line start.

The RGTS Series features include:

  • 1-phase soft-starter
  • All solid-state device, no bypass relays
  • Universal 120-240VAC line voltage rating
  • Controlled by line voltage
  • Option for VAC or VDC supply voltage
  • Maximum current rating 12, 16 or 25AAC
  • Up to 10 starts per hour at rated current
  • Voltage ramp-up control algorithm
  • Status indicating LEDs
  • CE approved, cULus listed

The RGTS is an ideal solution for simple applications such as centrifugal pumps, compressors, and fans that do not require a start capacitor.
