Motor Starters & Contactors

Motor Starters and Contactors

The motor starter’s primary function is to start and stop the motor. The starter prevents the motor from drawing heavy currents and safely switches the right amount of power to the motor.

Motor starters come in different sizes and ratings depending on the size and rating of the motor to which they are connected.

The contactor's main function is to make and break all power supply lines running to a load or to establish and interrupt an electrical power circuit. It can be part of a starter or stand alone as a power control device.

Contactors have a wide range of applications. They can be used in simple applications like light switches or complex applications like automated industrial equipment.

With brands like ABB, MARS Contactors, and Siemens, State Motor & Control Solutions has a large variety of motor starters and contactors to fit your specific application needs.
