This motor control is recommended for 3-phase machines like milling machines and lathes that require voltages from 208v-600v. These three-phase motor starter panels & anti-restart protection are great all-in-one upgrade options for older machines without restart protection or an E-stop button.
This product is for three-phase industrial machines. We also have single-phase, 120-volt standard motor starters for machines such as drill presses and bench grinders (Click here).
3-Phase Anti-Restart Protection
Many older machines, such as lathes and milling machines, do not have a three-phase motor starter panel and instead have mechanical on-off switches. This can lead to and cause several safety issues. The first issue is that your machine can restart after a power outage if somebody accidentally leaves the power switch in the “ON” position. The second issue is the lack of an emergency stop button. And lastly, the mechanical switch has up to 600 volts running through it, becoming an electrocution hazard. Installing a 3-phase motor starter panel will solve all these issues and bring the electrical system to machine safety standards.
