Goals and Symptoms
What is the derating factor used when sizing LH4N for a high number of starts per hour than the standard spec of 360 seconds.
Facts and Changes
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Note: The LH4 softstart family is obsolete.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.
