A complete family of solid state starters, drives and contractors specifically designed, manufactured, tested and UL Listed for severe duty applications

Low-Voltage Solid State Reduced Voltage Starters

UL tested and labeled, these starters have the highest available fault-withstand rating and SCR power sections, rated at a minimum of 500% for 30 seconds, with an additional 125% service factor. All starters are available with one of two distinctive micro-processor based controllers: RSD or RSM

Both controllers offer simple keypad programming elimination confusion with dip switches, potentiometers and nuisance adjustments, yet providing “quick start” programming and inter-changeability through all horsepower ranges.

The RSD series provides protection for IOC, adjustable solid state O/L, single phase loss, current imbalance, motor stall and under/over current. There are also adjustable controls for initial/ramp current, ramp time, kick current, deceleration and metering for unit status/fault/amps/programming.

All Benshaw solid state starters are guaranteed for three full years. Most other manufacturers limit their warranties to one year.

Medium-Voltage Solid State Reduced Voltage Starters

Available from 2.3 KV to 15 KV, up to 20,000 HP, Benshaw MV + Starters are specifically engineered to meet sever-duty standards such as: UL 346; heavy-duty load break disconnect switch; fixed-mount vacuum line isolation and SCR by-pass contactors as well as isolated low-voltage controls.

Of course, Benshaw medium voltage solid-state starters are fully warranted for three years.

Variable Frequency Drives

The Benshaw Redi-Start Inverter (RSi) Drives feature easy programming, heavy duty IGBT power sections and advanced control technology from 1 HP through 400 HP.

These adjustable speed drives are available for high-torque, clean power, industrial and HVAC packages and applications.
All Benshaw drives are constant torque rated (CT), with a 200% starting torque and variable torque rated (VT), with multiple acceleration/ deceleration patterns, stall prevention, auto-boost and programmable I/O terminals.

The RSi Drives are available in chassis, NEMA 1, 3R, 4 and 12 enclosures with any control and power modifications required to meet your particular needs. All Benshaw drives carry a full two-year warrany.

Full Voltage Motor Controls

The full line of Benshaw electro-mechanical contactors and full voltage starters is produced to the same demanding standards as every Benshaw severe-duty product.

All units are UL listed, NEMA/IEC rated and carry the industry’s only two-year warrany.

The RSC contactors and SP series overload relays can be packaged in combination and non-combination configurations. They can be supplied with any control modification specified and in NEMA 1, 3R, 4 and 12 enclosures.

A wide range of features include:
*Auxiliary contacts.
*Draw-out coils.
*Integral coil surge suppression.
*Optional electronic motor overload relays.
