Causes and Fixes

There is not studies which gives a factor to determine the power of LH4 in an appliction with high number start/stop per hour upper her electrical characteristics of the product.
The catalogue tell you :
-'' if starting and stpopping conditions are severe, or if the starting current must be controlled, it is preferable to use an ATS48 unit''.
- ''beyond this starting duty, the start unit must be derated by one size''.

However , we thinks when the number of start/stop is considerable and it would have been preferable to use a variable speed drive.

Note:  The LH4 softstart family is obsolete. It was replaced by the ATS01 softstart, or in the case of the larger LH4's the ATS22.
