The Benefits of Type E/F
Compared to the other types of starters, the star delta starter is used on a large scale.
As the name suggests, the three windings are connected in a star connection in the
star delta starters. A certain time is set by the timer or any other controller circuit.
After this time is passed, the windings are then connected in the delta connection.
The phase voltage in the star connection is reduced to 58%, and the total current
drawn is 58% of normal current. This results in a reduced torque.
The Advantages of Using Star Delta Motor Starters:
• They are ideal for long acceleration times.
• They have a lower input surge current when compared to other starters.
• They have a simpler construction as compared to other starters.
